Fowey and the Bowshot Lady are ideal for watersports - paddleboarding, kayaking and dinghy sailing. The Fowey estuary has great sheltered paddling and the nearby beaches of Polkerris and Porthpean provide opportunities for visiting Cornish coves and seeing wildlife.  The house has a garage for storing all your paddleboards and kayaks as well as outside and inside drying facilities for wetsuits and kit.   The Fowey main launch point for paddling is less than 1km from the house.   We recommend Encounter Cornwall for trips and lessons and can even help you plan your paddles and itinerary if you wish.
