People talk about the beautiful Fowey River but it is rarely seen at it’s best by visitors to Cornwall. Starting from Fowey you can enjoy the fabulous scenery and wildlife .
The River Valley is surrounded by wooded slopes and water meadows mostly owned by the National Trust, with nature reserves, salt marshes and bird sanctuaries on each side. The whole area is teeming with Heron, Wildfowl, Cormorants and even Kingfishers, and quietly gliding you can get closer to them than you have ever been. With over 25 miles of shoreline and 1000 acres of water there is something for the whole family to enjoy.
