About the Area
Fowey & Polruan
On the eastern edge of the harbour, the stone faced cottages of Polruan climb in untidy tiers up the steep sides of the valley. The two friendly pubs, few shops and strong local community help to maintain Polruan’s independence from its larger neighbour just across the harbour. Fowey on the western shore is a fascinating small town with a jumble of colour-washed houses, numerous quaint shops, pubs and restaurants centred on St Fimbarrus Church and Place House - two of its many historic buildings.

Lostwithiel's 13th Century Bridge over the River Fowey
Lostwithiel, the ancient capital of Cornwall, stands on the banks of the beautiful River Fowey about seven miles from the sea.
Around Lostwithiel, there are many interesting places to visit. Restormel Castle, the one time seat of Richard Earl of Cornwall is within a pleasant walk of the town. Several riverside footpaths lead from the town and local guide books are available. The coves and beaches on the south coast and the ancient port of Fowey are within fifteen minutes drive and the historic harbours of Charlestown and Mevagissey are about 30 minutes away.
Lerryn is a beautiful unspoilt village at the tidal limit of one of the creeks of the River Fowey. It is said to have some of the loveliest river scenery in Cornwall. The vista changes constantly with the tide and the tranquility is disturbed only by the birds and the occasional boat. The ducks are so tame they can be fed from the hand.
The sixteenth century bridge crosses the river just upstream from the stepping stones which provide an alternative crossing at low tide. From the stepping stones, a path leads to a beautiful walk through the National Trust's Ethy Wood and on to St Winnow - a tiny riverside hamlet with a lovely waterside church.

Bodinnick village. "Ferryside" is the house on the right
This tiny hamlet on the east bank of the River Fowey is an ideal base for exploring the beautiful beaches, walks and countryside of the Fowey area without the hustle and bustle of the main town. The ancient cottages and the Old Ferry Inn cling to the hillside around the Ferry which has been operating since the fourteenth century allowing easy access to the harbourside shops, restaurants and inns of Fowey itself.
Fowey's busy deep water harbour is used by countless small boats and ships of up to 17,000 tons. The hamlet of Mixtow on the east bank of the harbour is about one-and-a-half miles from the open sea. It provides an ideal base for the boating enthusiast to get afloat or relax and just watch the shipping and harbourside activities.
Visitors to Mixtow can launch at Penmarlem Quay which is owned by the Harbour Commission. Temporary moorings are available from the Harbour Commision in the creek. It is then a short boat trip by tender across the creek to the properties that we offer.

Looe harbour and bridge
Looe and Downderry
Originally two towns separated by the river, the historic fishing port of Looe is renowned for its sheltered beaches, quaint old buildings and labyrinth of narrow streets. There are numerous local pubs and restaurants in which to eat out and many interesting shops and places to visit.
Downderry is a small village in a beautiful location on the south coast of Cornwall just four miles from Looe. There is a large beach with sand and shingle ideal for children in summer or a quiet stroll in winter. The whole area boasts stunning sea views to St George's Island in the West, Rame Head in the East and on a clear day you can see the famous Eddystone lighthouse some 9 miles from shore.
