Fabulous Fowey in Times' top places to live
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
The brilliant town which we're lucky enough to call home is famous for its association with the acclaimed novelist Daphne du Maurier, which the Times says is one of the reason it was on the final list.
The picturesque harbour town of Fowey is well-known across the UK for its royal regatta and because if the fact novelist Daphne du Maurier lived nearby at Menabilly.
The news is no surprise to us since we know exactly why people come to stay at hotels in Fowey Cornwall England each year, but it does show how people from outside the South West are waking up to the fact!
Fowey town councillor Katherine Alexander has lived in the town since 1961 and said she wasn't surprised either.
"One of the big attractions we have here in Fowey is the river and the sea," she said. "Thanks to the sea we can attract thousands to the regatta and thousands more who moor here on their yachts.
"Personally the environment - the river, the sea and the cliffs - is what makes Fowey special, but we don't just get people coming here because of those elements.
"We also get thousands more people visiting for the famous du Maurier literary festival and as locals we make everyone who comes to the town feel very welcome."
