About The Well House
Thanks! You'll receive an email as soon as the property answers your question.
Originally a Merchant's house, the Well House dates back to around 1430, the year before Joan of Arc was burnt at the stake, before the start of the War of the Roses and half a century before Christopher Columbus discovered America. When Henry VIII came to the throne the house was nearly 80 years old, and when his daughter, Elizabeth I, succeeded him it was 128 years old! Many of the original features such as fireplaces and beams still remain and some of the original cobbles are on view in the tea rooms. In recent times the Well House has been a museum, a gift shop and a florist. It became a Bed & Breakfast in 2006 and a Tea Room in 2009.
Tim, Paula and their daughter Hayley took over The Well House in February 2012. Having spent many years holidaying in Cornwall, the family decided to 'live the dream' and run their own business in Fowey - their favourite place. Quite a change from previous successful careers in the MOD and the Medical Supplies Industry! Frank the black labrador dog joined our family in October 2012 at the age of 2 months. He loves greeting customers in the tea rooms and also our Bed & Breakfast guests.
We are located in the middle of Fore Street in the heart of Fowey so we are close to public car parks and the great pubs, restaurants and shops. The Town Quay, with it's great views across the estuary is a 2 minute walk away. Readymoney Beach and St Catherine's Castle are 10 minutes walk away - both great for families to visit. For walking enthusiasts, the South West Coastal path is also a 10 minute walk away. There are boat trips and boats for hire throughout the day from the Town Quay between May and October.
