Description from owner
Bodinnick lies on the east bank of the Fowey river about half a mile up river from the harbour entrance. The village is connected to Fowey by a regular passenger/car ferry which runs throughout the year except Christmas Day and Boxing Day. This delightful riverside community has a small hotel/public house, The Old Ferry Inn, providing good food and friendly service in traditional old world surroundings. The village also has one of the smallest churches in the county, St. Johns which was converted from a stable to a church in the 1950s. The village is also the starting/finishing point for the famous Hall Walk, a spectacular footpath which winds its way through superb countryside following the course of one of the tidal tributaries of the river Fowey. Passing through the hamlet of Pont, at the head of the navigable part of the tributary, the footpath terminates at Polruan the village which sits just inside the harbour entrance on the east bank. Polruan has two public houses and a café.

- Very Good
We were a total of six people (my wife and myself, our 10 year old son, my sister and her husband and my mother) and we had a fantastic time in Cornwall and enjoyed our stay at Rose cottage immensely. The house is beautiful and the setting is stunning. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch overlooking the river. Bodinnick has only one pub (across the street), which fortunately serves up excellent food. The cottage is very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped (although it does need some new knives). Fowey is a quick ferry ride away. You can also make a round trip walk via Polruan and Fowey, about 4 miles. Note that the roads are narrow and parking in Bodinnick can be tricky, but we were always able to find somewhere. (Rose cottage has one parking space, but we had two cars.) I can't wait to go back!
Thank you for your kind comments, so glad you enjoyed your stay. We know we are biased but we think this is the best bit of Cornwall. New knives await you for your next visit!
“Amazing fromn start to finish”
What an amazing place to stay. Louise came to introduce herself and to make sure we had settled in upon arrival. Amazing views from the main bedroom. More facilities than you can possibly dream of. Clean, tidy, everything working as it should. As we had our 3 month old daughter with us it was amazing to discover the local pub 10 second walk from the cottage did a takeaway service. Well it was the best takeaway we've ever had. It arrived fully plated and piping hot and the new french chef who runs the pub can certainly cook, it was amazing food, full of flavour. We can't wait to return to this magical place.
Really delighted that you had such an enjoyable time, thank you for your very kind words. Do hope that you will come back.
