Lunch at the Talland Bay Hotel (sandwiches in our case) is a great start to any day. What could be better than looking out of the lounge windows over the unique gardens to the bay itself? We were showing Malcolm and Ann today some of our local hotspots. We were due to show them our favourite local village Lerryn on the Fowey, but as time pressed we opted to go straight to Bodinnick where we had time to look at Daphne Du Maurier’s house, and the general river scene, whilst waiting for the ferry. A walk round pretty Fowey itself is always refreshing and we certainly enjoyed ourselves. To cap the day off we went to the atmospheric Crown Inn at Lanlivery for a couple of pints of real ale. Twelfth century, located in a beautiful village on the hill, large slate fireplace, real ales….terrific!
