If you have a couple of hours to spare and fancy a diversion from traipsing around Fowey, then park the car in the Caffa Mill Car Park (£5.20 for all day parking), get the Bodinnick Car ferry as a foot passenger (£1.30) and begin your stroll in a sweeping loop around the Fowey headland. The walk is not difficult - maybe two or three steep inclines - and there are plenty of benches as well as a beautifully picturesque stopping point at the tiny hamlet of Pont. Throughout, the views over the Fowey Estuary are magnificent and the four mile walk ends at the village of Polruan, where you can catch the passenger ferry back to Fowey (£1.60). My one tiny niggle about the walk is that much of it is forested, which although pleasant, does obscure those wondrous views quite a lot. Other tips: no specialist footwear required, but do watch out for uneven and muddy stretches, young children will find it less than stimulating and will probably be worn out half way through, do follow the signposts carefully throughout or you may end up walking up someone's long driveway and only realising too late and lastly, do this walk on a nice, sunny day or the views will be wasted. Other than that, enjoy this lovely sojourn in a beautiful corner of Cornwall.
