I visited with my friend on a cold winter's day but the splendours of Fowey can be appreciated in any weather. I would recommend anyone coming well out of season NOT to pay for a carpark (how I hate pay and display!) as there are parking spaces on the Esplanade and beyond and you are not then wondering about how long you want to stay. We did not make it up to Readymoney Cove (which is a lovely setting) on this occasion which is certainly a must at some point. One of Daphne du Maurier's houses is next to it and you can have a cream tea there. There is a small shop in Fowey itself which has a small history of her works and life as well. Another must is to take the ferry to Polruan, in the rough weather this can be slightly difficult and if you have mobility problems it could be rather problematic to say the least. You have to step down into the boat and when the sea is rough as it was when we took it the water covers all of the steps down from the harbour. We had problems docking on the way back, and had to climb back on the harbour's edge via the ladder on the wall (and I nearly got my foot stuck behind it which gave the ferryman a fright). The streets are winding throughout Fowey, there are some enviable houses and there are some fantastic views. One of my favourite places in Cornwall. Next time I go I shall do the Hall Walk back to Fowey from Polruan
