Romp around in the walled gardens, or play croquet or giant Jenga in the summer. Fowey's chickens (Hen-rietta, Mic-shell and Eggburt) are fed every day at 10am (take your kids to reception just beforehand and nannies will escort them to the coup). This exceedingly child-friendly hotel has an outdoor play area, with a large trampoline, and there are Didicars for youngsters in the den. Table football and Nintendo Wiis are available in the Blue Room. Family-friendly films are shown nightly in the Cooks Room during school holidays. Fowey always has its ear to the ground when it comes to local family-friendly events, for example a toy exhibition at the Royal Cornwall Museum, or National Science Week children's programmes at Newquay Zoo.
Children under 16 are not allowed in the main restaurant for dinner, but if you want to eat together after 6.45pm, you can do so in the Garden Room. There are 5pm and 5.30pm sittings for nursery tea (bookable with the restaurant by 11am). Breakfast is free for under-twos, £5 for two- to seven-year-olds, £7.50 for 8–11-year-olds and £10 for under-16s. The kitchen provides puréed food on request, but you'll need to bring your own bottles, formula and baby food. Fowey Hall will happily provide family picnics; order at reception by 6pm the evening before. During the summer, the hotel throws barbecue parties on Sunday evenings and shuts both restaurants.
