Slightly disappointing. Great location but despite this and its name, there was no fish on the menu and the choice and quality of food was mediocre.

A friendly little village pub that does good simple pub food. A lovely spot to while away an hour two, over a drink or three, watching the world go nowhere in particular!

Nearest beach

Fowey Harbour (2 miles)

The beaches around the harbour are filled with much seaweed and not ideal for usual beach activity. They are however a great spot to sit and watch river activity, there are some sandy patches and much shingle and rock.

Nearest town

Lerryn (1 ¾ miles)

Pretty waterside village on the upper reaches of the River Fowey. Beautiful surroundings and lovely walks that will take you through the woods to St Winnow, a small hamlet with a truly delightful church that sits beside the water. The local farmer serves teas there in season! Walking back to Lerryn you can enjoy an ice cream or sample local produce from the pub.

The Eden Project (4 ½ miles)

It hardly needs any introduction…This global garden with its iconic Biomes is home to millions of plants and flowers reflecting the diversity of our planet. Marvel at the largest greenhouse in the world, see internationally-acclaimed architecture and art inspired by nature, or go to a gig at the renowned Eden Sessions. Children can learn about humans' complex relationship with nature in The Core interactive education centre or go free-range and explore trails, hideaways and sandpits. A wide range of cafes and restaurants provide delicious, responsibly-resourced refuelling stops and the shop is crammed full of interesting gift and souvenir ideas. An organic project that just keeps on growing, a visit to The Eden Project is an awe-inspiring experience. You can also have a go on the new zip wire, reported to be the longest in England - go on, you know you want to!!

Great for families

We've been several times and always had fun. You can get annual tickets when you gift aid your entry which is very worthwhile as it isn't cheap. Went twice over Easter week once going in as it opened and enjoying the biomes in the pouring rain! Core building also great for kids and not as busy as biomes. We went again later in the day another day and discovered that you can have an evening meal in the Mediterranean biome midweek from Easter to October which was a lovely treat and then they give you a lift back up the hill afterwards! Staying til it closes gives you a quieter time too!

A fun day at Eden

Myself and my two children (aged 4 and 7) visited Eden Project during the school holidays. We had a great day out which was enjoyed by all. The Biomes were busy at times but there was plenty of little hideaway places outside to get away from the crowd and recharge the batteries. We took our own picnic so don't know about pricing / food of the onsite eateries but I can say that the ice creams were lovely and in my opinion great value at £2 each.

September 2012

We went on a rainy day in the summer hols and understandably everyone else had the same idea so it was packed. It was nice to see the iconic biomes and interesting to look round but we thought it was very expensive for what it was - £60 for 4 of us plus we ate there so an extra £40 for that. We also seemed to spend a lot of time queuing for food, to look round the biomes, for the park and ride etc . We would go back but perhaps out of season to have chance to explore fully. We'd also look round for cheaper tickets!!

Have wanted to visit here for many years. It was quite interesting, the Biomes were amazing to look at from the outside. We bought tickets from the tourist information centre before we visited which they sell at discounted prices and also went after 3.30pm when entrance is less. The cakes in the cafe were all a bit stale, at nearly £40 for a piece of cake and a drink for 7 of us we thought they would be lovely and were not so good. Maybe it was a bad day for cake. Glad to have visited, would probably only go once.

good value with stores vouchers....

Visited for the first time 10 years ago, and of course in 10 years it HAS changed...more grown up, but we remarked to each other many times that it didn't feel as "magical" as the first time we wound our way down to the domes. The large 'flags' have gone that marked the way down the paths.....perhaps that was it? entrance was £23 each for adults & £9.50 each for kids....So to be honest we really wouldn't have visited had it not been for a certain store voucher scheme that meant we payed £5 each and the kids £2.50 each ...so we did treat ourselves to lunch..£5 for most mains with salad or new potatoes....YUMMY, filling & VERY good value, with free pitchers of water on the tables and help yourself mugs hang above - all very handy. Plenty to see and do although our kids sped around the place and ended up where they REALLY wanted to be..in the shop. A great day out though , as they slept like logs on the way home!

What a wonderful way to spend a day. The weather was perfect for us, but that didn't matter as it would be okay on a poor day at Eden. It was early in the year when we visited but still plenty to see and do.
Had lunch there and it was very good value for money.
We will be back!

We felt that £20 per adult was a lot to pay, yes there was plenty to see; however, on a wet, cold, windy day walking the outside paths was not great.The two domes well worth seeing, but again not worth £40. We came away saying to each other that we felt the Eden Project to be a great Educational Centre for children, schools and colleges to visit, there were other gardens we visited in Cornwall we felt much better value.

There aren't may concert venues where there are no queues for the loo or the bar! A great venue with staff who actually smile - and if you don't like the band you can always wander around a biome (or two).

The Eden Project really is somewhere very special. Leave loads of time to look around and I would recommend staying for the evening as this is when the place really comes alive. The lighting and scenery in the evening has to been seen to be believed, it’s so beautiful.

The biomes are amazing, and the educational centre is interesting too. Watch the film on the making of Eden. It's a good couple of hours long but worth it. With ice skating and gigs playing at this exciting venue too it makes a good day out for all the family.

Eden Sessions and Biomes

My trip to The Eden Project was amazing. I visited in the summer to see a band and included in the ticket was access to the rest of the grounds; we went early and took a trip around the Biomes before the gig started. The sound quality from the open-air gig was fantastic, I would definitely recommend going if you get the chance (but remember tickets sell out fast!).

A visit to the Eden Project is a must. The biomes which house the plants from all over the world are amazing! And if you get chance to see a gig then it will be an experience you will not forget - tickets are often sold out!

Fowey (2 miles)

A pretty harbour town that tumbles from high on the hill right down to the water. Narrow, crooked streets give Fowey a classic Cornish feel. The inspiration for much of Daphne du Maurier’s writing, Fowey hosts the hugely popular Du Maurier Festival each year. The Regatta Week, held every August, is a highlight in Fowey’s calendar.

small but perfectly formed

We came over twice on the Bodinnick ferry which docks at the far end of the esplanade, and parked in the main car park at the top of the town. Only very brave people would attempt to drive through and park in the town, even out of season. The ferry runs all year.The town bus was essential to get back up the very steep hill. It was very helpful that the minivan bus took the dog on board as well as us. The tourist information office is next to the bus stop in town, and the staff were very friendly, with plenty of suggestions for our visits. We enjoyed lunch one day at a dog friendly café called, I think, Pinky Murphy's. The Fowey Hotel was also pleased to allow us to bring the dog in whilst we had lunch in the bar overlooking the beautiful estuary. I would visit Fowey again with pleasure.

Fowey is a beautiful little town with stunning views. We parked in the main top car park and used the bus to get up and down ( I am slightly disabled) The bus driver was extremely helpful and friendly. The town is fascinating, full of history, good little shops, galleries and restaurants etc. We also took a 45 min boat trip round the estuary which was fun and good value.

Enter via the delightful Boddinick Ferry which docks at Daphne du Maurier's childhood home. There are beaches, boat rides, and canoeing on offer, as well as many pubs, restaurants, and delicious local ice cream. My only tip is to leave your car in one of the car parks, explore on foot and enjoy the atmosphere.

This magnificent house charts life in Victorian times. There are 50 rooms to explore, from the high-Victorian interiors of the family home to the extensive servants' quarters 'below stairs', plus wonderful gardens and a wooded estate to stroll in and an adventure playground for the young ones to let off steam. In 2014 cycle trails have been created with bike hire on site.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the historic Lanhydrock House. First we used the cycle paths which the children (aged 5 and 8) really enjoyed.

Lanhydrock has something for everyone. The house is really interesting and the friendly guides are knowledgeable about its history. Although I didn't visit the formal gardens on this occasion, I did join an organised estate walk, which was led by rangers who were most informative and, again, very friendly. We had lunch in the restaurant, which was tasty and fairly priced. We would certainly recommend a visit.

Lanhydrock House and Estate is between Bodmin and Lostwithiel The National Trust House provides a wonderful insight into local history and you can also walk the estate, free of charge, by parking in the car park down by the river, close to Respryn. River side footpaths take you through wooded areas which are covered with wild flowers.
After a good walk you can drive towards Lostwithiel, on the back lanes, to the Duchy Nursery for lunch. Not only is it a pleasure to wander among the plants and trees but the shop and restaurant are designed to add ambience to the whole experience. 5 star

The house and grounds are beautiful, quite a sight as you walk down the drive from the car park. The grounds themselves offer lots of different walks, but the one that goes down to the river then back through the woods is my favourite.

Lanhydrock

Magnificent late Victorian country house with expensive servants' quarters, gardens and wooded estate near Bodmin.
Visiting this house entails a drive, but it will provide you with a full day out. The house itself is fascinating, mostly because it has been wonderfully Victorianised in every detail - the kitchens, dairy and pantries are extensive - and the history of house, as well as that of the last generation of Robartes to live at Lanhydrock, gradually unfolds as you move around the house (with, of course, the help of National Trust volunteers). There are various options for lunch (picnic, cafe, restaurants) and the grounds are a joy to wander around afterwards. There are quizzes for children and the option of driving right up to the gate if a member of your party can't manage the walk down the drive.

Well worth a visit for the grounds as well as the house. The kitchens are a real eye opener with all the old utensils. Walk down through the grounds to the River Fowey and the beautiful old Respryn Bridge. If you prefer you can drive down and park beside the bridge. Lovely walks beside the river.
