Views of and from Fowey (pronounced “Foy”), Cornwall

I’m a little disappointed with my Fowey pictures. I took too few of the town itself and of the winding streets and alleys. Fowey is a lovely, small Cornish town at the bottom of a steep hill. The shops, pubs and cafes are wrapped around the winding, narrow roads. There is a small bookshop, selling antiquarian and local books but also some general novels. Fowey is small – but just the right size!

Our holiday cottage was a barely 5 minutes walk to the town, though it took a little longer on the way back up the steep hill. The many views from Fowey are of across the estuary to the small town of Polruan.

We had a fabulous 5 nights in Fowey. It was warm and sunny /cloudy apart from one day when it drizzled all day.

Portwrinkle, on the way to our Cornwall cottage

On the way to our Cornwall cottage we made a diversion to Portwrinkle, a small, coastal Cornish village just beyond Plymouth. As a child, my wife had several holidays in the area and we have re-visited the village a couple of times.

There’s not much there apart from a hotel and golf course, and of course the magnificent scenery.
