Whether you want a special place to spend time with the family or a get-away-from-it-all time with friends, Fowey Retreat is the perfect place for your Cornish holiday. Near enough to join in with anything that is going on yet secluded, quiet and private on the edge of beautiful country and just a short walk from the glorious coastal path. Lankelly Lane is Fowey's best kept secret. The Lane is just above the town, its houses set in their own large private, enclosed gardens with a long view over the fields to the ocean. The Lane is overwhelmingly occupied by local people. Turn left out of the five bar gate and you head towards Lankelly Farm past the local riding stables, Coombe and the breathtaking views of Polridmouth beach, the National Trust coastal path and the great ascent to the Gribben Head. Or shortcut across the headland via the woodland paths of Tregaminion and Menabilly (Du Maurier country) to the sandy beach and rockpools of Polkerris and Sam's wonderful restaurant or a pint at the Rashleigh Arms. Turn right and you are a 10 minute walk from the town centre or 200 yards from the tree lined path down to Neptune Point and Readymoney Cove and St. Catherine's Castle.
Fowey Retreat is used for some of the year as a Christian Retreat.
