Enjoy a visit to Bodinnick with easy access from Fowey, including the blissfully tranquil waterfront and the Old Ferry Inn.

On the east bank of the river, just a mile up river from Polruan, is the delightful small waterside village of Bodinnick. Connected to Fowey by a regular car ferry, the crossing takes about three minutes, Bodinnick has no more than a few dozen houses mostly built on either side of the old village hill that rises up from the ferry slip way. With its famous Old Ferry Inn comprising a small hotel and atmospheric pub, the village has a number of very old cottages some dating back to Elizabethan times including a dwelling that was used as an overnight jail for prisoners on their way for trial at the Launceston Assizes.

Bodinnick is also the start or end point of the Hall Walk - a walk of beauty through woodlands and creek with spectacular views of Fowey and the harbour. A 4 mile circular walk (moderately easy).

Bodinnick ferry operates all year with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year's Day (a passenger service is available on Boxing Day and New Year's Day).
