Rugby lovers in Fowey and the surrounding towns are in for a treat tomorrow when Lankelly-Fowey take on a St Austell XV at Lankelly Farm.

Merry Christmas from us all at The Cormorant
25th December 2014
Here at the Cormorant we've been opening presents this morning, sipping sherry and getting the roast turkey on the go, and thought we'd take the chance to pop online and wish you all a very merry Christmas! Whether you're just popping online to wish your friends and family well on Christmas day, or are looking at our website because you're booking a break as a present to yourself, we hope you've had a brilliant day so far.
Four sweet Christmas treats
19th December 2014
With Christmas coming you're sure to have guests coming to stay, or to be going to visit others, so what sweet treats should you serve up, or expect? Unfortunately you can't bring your guests along to the Cormorant's award-winning restaurants Fowey Cornwall, as we're closed for Christmas - but you can try one or two of these sweet treats recommended by our head chef Dane Watkins. They're not exactly gourmet treats, but Christmas is all about embracing tacky and gaudy things you'd shun at other times of the year, plus any children in your family will adore these sweet treats!
Fowey supports local charities
17th December 2014
Fowey locals will be supporting three local charities on Saturday by attending a charity disco in the town. Town folk and visitors to Fowey Cornwall hotels will be headed for the Fowey Town Hall on Saturday evening for the Love Fowey Christmas Disco. The get together and dance has been organised by Love Fowey, an organisation which helps organise many of the town's famous annual events, like the Christmas Markets, Fowey Festival of Words and Music and Fowey Royal Regatta.
Merry Christmas from the Cormorant!

We've already got two offers up and running for next year, with our Valentines break offer and Spring deal offer both on the website already.

Fowey Christmas markets bring joy to the streets
10th December 2014
The famous Fowey Christmas markets bought joy to the streets of the town this past weekend, as thousands of people visited to but festive treats. The markets got under way on Friday evening, with visitors to boutique hotels in Cornwall among the thousands who took part in carol singing at Berrils Yard with the Fowey Town Band. There were screams of delight from children as Father Christmas arrived in Fowey by boat from Polruan, before leading the Fowey Town Band and Fowey Academy Samba Band through the town to St Fimbarrus Church.
Fowey Film on show
5th December 2014
Fantastic footage of the Fowey of old will be on show tomorrow in a special screening at St Fimbarrus Church. The town's history will be celebrated by a special 50-minute film which features footage from the South West Film and Television Archive which shows Fowey through time. The screening is being put on by Fowey Harbour Heritage Society and shows a compilation of footage of Fowey and the surrounding area. The film includes clips of local yachts sailing out of the harbour, and clips filmed inside famous pubs and hotels in Fowey pubs, as well as footage of the china clay docks in action during the 1960s.
Fowey Harbourmaster: "Stop buying boats online when you're drunk"
4th December 2014
Fowey's harbourmaster has made a bizarre request for locals not to buy boats on a whim, particularly if they're drunk. The request may sound amusing, and we must admit it did make us giggle, but his request does have a serious message. Captain Paul Thomas has made the request following a recent clear up of Fowey harbour, which saw the port authority have to deal with boats which had been effectively abandoned by owners who'd bought them without giving any real thought to how they would maintain them.
