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 National Trust land 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. There is a pedestrian ferry from Polruan back to Fowey.
