The Bodinnick car ferry runs regularly from 7am to 7pm across to Fowey where there is a wide selection of shops, restaurants and pubs.

The cottage is in the heart of Du Maurier country Daphne herself grew up at the house at the bottom of Bodinnick hill - and it is in short driving distance of The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, and the picturesque fishing ports of Mevagissey, Polperro and Looe.
