Finishing at Devoran for a much needed drink at the Old Quay Inn.
The Carrick Roads – We start at Pendennis Castle walking the Moat Walk around the grounds and a diversion to Pendennis Point to view the iconic Carrick roads, then on to The Pandora Inn for morning coffee and soak up the history of Restronguet Creek. Across the King Harry Ferry and on to a secret beauty spot. We then make our way to St Mawes Castle and a walk through the historic village of St Mawes, why not find a pub or cafe to sit and unwind or have a picnic by the sea. We finish our tour at St Anthony Head for some spectacular views.
The River Fowey – Travelling from Codda on Bodmin Moor to Fowey Harbour following the river through Launceston and Lostwithiel stopping at the famous Jamaica Inn for morning coffee and to soak up the myths and legends. Then on to Golitha Falls for a stunning walk through the ancient woodland and a spot of lunch. Next, Lostwithiel and the historic Tudor Bridge and lastly onto the beautiful port of Fowey where you can relax on the quay, soak up the history or go for a drink.
