We have stayed at Fowey Hall on many occasions. It is a wonderful place.
Our first visit was the week they opened in the summer of 1998 - a gloriously chaotic stay as they hadn't managed to get the builders out until the day before they opened so the staff spent whole time on the back foot, learning as they went, with late dinners, failed plumbing and patchy service - but that still ranks among the best holidays we've ever had. Fowey Hall was then, as it is now, utterly wonderful.
That winter we retuned with our entire family for a big New Year gathering, which was excellent, and we have been back again and again and loved every visit.
Now our kids are older and family holidays becoming a distant memory, three of us returned this week for a buffet/barbecue lunch just to check the old place out. It has hardly changed a bit - the service is still excellent and friendly, the welcoming smell of wood fireplaces so immediately relaxing and the glorious view from terrace is spellbinding.
I challenge anyone to sit on that terrace in the sun with a drink in hand, listening to the kids playing on the lawn, and not think "it can't get any better than this". Or, if you go off-season when the cost is half and the rain is horizontal, just sit by the fire and have afternoon tea with a newspaper while the kids are being expertly supervised in the crèche.
Downsides? None that spring to mind. Ok, it is quite expensive but, without question, it's superb value.
Fowey Hall is, in our experience, one of the finest hotels for families. Such a shame our kids have outgrown family holidays!
