Local Area

Our corner of south-east Cornwall is a beautiful, unspoilt area, easily reached by road and rail.

Set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Fowey and Polruan are renowned for their narrow winding streets, ancient buildings, deep water harbour and, of course, the literary heritage of famous authors Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch and Daphne du Maurier. Sandy beaches at Polridmouth, Par, Polkerris and Pentewan are within relatively easy reach and the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are nearby.

    This medieval waterside town is set around the estuary of the River Fowey.

    Across the estuary from its larger neighbour, Fowey, this ancient village is an undiscovered delight.

    Bodinnick-by-Fowey
