Bodinnick, Lanteglos and Lansallos
Lying to the east of the river you will find the village of Bodinnick, hugging the water’s edge it is the landing point for the car ferry from Fowey. The crossing is an experience in itself, and beside the slipway is Daphne du Maurier’s house, Ferryside.
This calm, picturesque village has a 400 year old Inn and is also the starting point for the fabulous Hall Walk, one of the area’s best loved routes. Walking guides are available from our online shop.
On this side of the river steep banked narrow lanes meander through farmland, tiny villages and hamlets such as Lanteglos with its historic 14th century church and Lansallos situated above the scenic Lansallos Cliffs. From here you can take the half mile walk down to a sheltered cove and then on along the coast path to Polruan and Fowey to the west or Polperro to the east - a challenging but beautifully dramatic walk.
