The Ship Inn, AKA ‘The Old Lady of Fowey’ is a Grade II* listed building. Although officially built for John Rashleigh in 1570, according to English Heritage, it was probably a merchant’s house before this, dating back to the 1400s. There are very few pubs around with so many of the original features intact. For the old buildings enthusiast look out for Killas rubble on the ground floor, Pentewan stone and freestone to original dressings and chunky Delabole slate. Because it’s been added to and rebuilt over its long history, it has evolved into a beautiful, higgledy-piggledy old building with nooks and crannies and old panelled rooms at every turn where you can hide out or snuggle in for the duration.
