Following our multi-million pound refurbishment we have re-opened the doors and are busy welcoming many friendly faces both old and new so go on, come in and take a snoop around!
The hotel’s 36 bedrooms, lounges, restaurant and children’s games area all are enjoying a super stylish and luxurious new look. This has been a real labour of love for our interior design team who have worked with renowned local artists and craftsmen in order to create a range of bespoke interiors which celebrates the best of craftsmanship in both Cornwall and Britain.
On arrival, you will still recognise the hotel’s historic lobby; welcomed by a roaring log fire in a feature fireplace, lit by an eye-catching Jamb globe chandelier on the ceiling. Much to the delight of our guests, the lobby retains many of its original features and beautiful parquet floor dating from 1899 when Fowey Hall was built as a private house by local businessman Sir Charles Hanson.
Lounge areas have been updated with inviting sofas upholstered in classic British heritage fabrics providing more seating areas as well as the opportunity to grab a casual bite to eat. Our extensive library retains its original bookshelves but has been fully restocked with more than 700 new books for adults and children of all ages to enjoy.
The Mansion House’s 16 bedrooms have all been refurbished and feature oak wooden floors, painted in soft grey, vintage pieces of furniture, oversized wool rugs, and bespoke handmade turned oak beds made by Cornwall furniture and homeware designer, Headandhaft.
The 11 bedrooms and one large family suite in the two-storey Garden Wing have a more modern feel. The rooms feature luxurious beds and designer furnishings including rough edge elm coffee tables and wardrobes which are lined with characterful bespoke wallpaper designed by interior designers StudioJill and illustrated by North Cornwall artist Nicole Heidaripour. Bathrooms are spacious and feature deep rust coloured freestanding baths to enjoy a long, relaxing soak.
Rooms in the hotel’s Coach House also have a rustic feel, each with a light oak four-poster bed and a mix of new and antique furniture that has been lovingly restored. Bathrooms pick up on the heritage of Fowey Hall with soft grey panelling and bold patterned tiling.
Each room also features a 50-55 inch flat screen smart TV making streaming your favourite films and boxsets so easy!
The hotel children’s rooms are sophisticated yet playful. The bunk beds and desks are bespoke, again made by HeadandHaft. The room lighting comes in the form of a fisherman’s net pendant light and the iconic ‘softhead’ dogs displayed on the walls, which can be seen around the hotel, as well as a ruler on the wall so children can see how much they’ve grown every time they come back, all reinforce the relaxed feel.
The hotel also boasts a games and cinema room its walls adorned with Marvel posters and the room playfully furnished with vintage cinema seats and leather pommel horse seating. It’s kitted out with table tennis, vintage arcade games and a pool table all popular with guests young and old.
Fowey is rapidly becoming the place to be in Cornwall with its buzzy and flourishing food and drink scene thanks to newly opened restaurants including Appletons & North Street Kitchen brought by the team at Fitzroy of Fowey.
Yet Fowey still manages to retain its fishing village charm and Fowey Hall is perfectly positioned to enjoy all that it offers. Most importantly, excellent Cornish cuisine is at the heart of the experience and the restaurant serves breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner or can even cater for private events.
In its final stages is the newly created Morning Room Bar, which overlooks the garden terrace, promising to offer a versatile space for morning coffee through to evening drinks. The perfect place for a traditional Cornish Afternoon Tea or a sundowner. More to follow – watch this space!
