Local Area

On the east bank of the River Fowey, is the picturesque small waterside village of Bodinnick in the parish of Lanteglos. Bodinnick overlooks Fowey town and is at the start of the famous Hall Walk to Polruan.  Renowned for its surrounding beautiful countryside (looked after by the National Trust) it has become a haven for wildlife and ramblers alike with ancient farmland (dating back to Doomsday records of 1086) having changed very little since then - with its woodland, streams, working farms, narrow lanes, small cottages and stunning sea views it's no surprise it's a walkers haven.  Bodinnick is steeped in history, it is famously known for its old ferry crossing, and was once the home to Daphne du Maurier and is where Arthur Quiller-Couch spent much of his time tending gardens along Hall Walk.

The 14th Century ferry crossing use to belong to the manor of Bodinnick at Hall. It was an important point where horse-drawn carts (later vehicles) transported goods to Plymouth and London.  During the civil war this was used when the King's men marched along this route to meet the roundheads. On 17th August 1644 Charles I narrowly escaped death, when a shot fired along Hall Walk missed the King, killing a fisherman instead.

Whilst soaking up the history and atmosphere of this village the local shops and farms are excellent places to enjoy the local produce and recharge your batteries. The variety of local shops sell a range of local produce including eggs, vegetable, cider, local beef and pork, apple juices and Cornish Orchard.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Choughs. It was a comfortable and cosy base for our holiday in South Cornwall. The walk to and from the ferry kept us fit and the cows behind made it feel like home!Young family - 3rd September 2016
We really enjoyed our holiday here, in this lovely bungalow & had amazing weather (always helps!). We loved the walk to Polruan & Fowey using both ferries & the any coastal walks & beach visits. Our boys said they have had 'an epic time'. It was a fantastic bonus getting to watch the fireworks for Fowey Regatta week from the front terrace. Perfect!The Gray family - 19th August 2016
