The Dwelling House at Fowey

Bed & Breakfast and Tearooms


Parts of The Dwelling House date from the 16th century when it was made up of two smaller and humbler houses facing onto a cobbled passage running down the right hand side of the building to the waterfront.

In the 18th century the two houses were joined together, the graceful Georgian staircase and facade were added, and The Dwelling House was turned to face Fore Street as it does today.

In the 19th century The Dwelling House was home to William Lowry who variously served as a wine & spirit merchant, Lloyds agent, harbour master and vice-consul for Sweden and Norway.

From the late 19th century until the 1980s The Dwelling House was the premises of Graham & Graham local solicitors.
