Four autumn activities in Fowey
Written by The Cormorant Hotel
As the weather starts to turn the air gets a little bit of a nip to it, meaning you'll need a jacket on your holiday in Cornwall, but the rewards for buttoning up and venturing outside are endless.
There are so many things to do in autumn around Fowey and Golant it would be easy to just explore the area immediately around the Cormorant Hotel.
Walking along the river from Golant to Fowey alone is a great experience, as the path wends its way along the river.
So to make sure you see a bit more of Cornwall on your trip to us we thought we'd recommend five things to do on your trip to stay with us in autumn.
1 Guided Town Walk of Fowey
Throughout September you can take part in a guided walk of Fowey, where you'll be shown the sights and told all about the town's history.
Your guide will tell you how the town and port have developed over the years and will help you discover who the Fowey Gallants were, where the Ragged Staff is, why the Pilgrims were here and what the town's connection with Harvard University is.
Book a place on the walk at Fowey Tourist information Centre.
2 The Hall Walk
This fantastic walk runs into October and sees walkers set off on a circular route around the Fowey estuary.
The walk uses both ferries across the river and provides fantastic views back towards Fowey and its harbour.
Notable landmarks on the walk include the Q memorial, tranquil Pont Creek and the beautiful church of St Wyllow.
Again, a guide for the walk can be booked through Fowey Tourist information Centre.
3 Lostwithiel Antique Market
If antiques, collectables, memorabilia and all things vintage are your bag then Lostwithel is the place to visit in autumn.
Every other Friday in autumn the town's community centre hosts a large and well attended antique market, where there are bargains galore to be found.
4 Lostwithiel farmers market
If it's local produce you're interested in Lostwithiel is again the place to visit.
On alternating Fridays to the antique market the town's community centre hosts a large farmers market.
The market is a great chance to get hold of some tasty Cornish produce for you to take home - and you can rest assured it really is local produce, since everything sold at the market is grown within 35 miles of Lostwithiel.
