Walking in the Fowey Area

“One of the best Cornish walking guides ever”

An essential series of walking books, that provides everything you need for an enjoyable and interesting day out!

Walk through myths and legends, literary landscapes and lost industries. See if you can spot where a dragon was slain, or a King cut down,  play on the river that helped inspire Wind in the Willows or return to Manderley and walk through the landscape of du Maurier’s books.

  • Eleven walks ranging from 2 to 11 miles 
  • Each walk is accompanied by a map, an elevation and photos 
  • Clear, concise instructions 
  • Interesting and engaging points of interest 
  • Fully interactive with additional links and photo albums 
  • Extra features range from recipes to short stories and further recommended readings.
  • The print version and kindle version have varying layouts and whilst all the information is the same in both, we have made sure that it is properly laid out in each format.

A refreshing approach to Walking Guides; this series really focuses on a smaller area, so there’s less driving all across the county. It also means that you really get to discover your local area and this is why it’s loved by visitors and residents alike. Get your copy of Walking in the Fowey Area today and start exploring.

“This book is meticulous in detail and offers some really valid tips and a local’s insight into the area for walkers of all abilities. It’s well written and informative.”

“Perfect book of walks in and around the Mevagissey area. Already have some walking books but usually there are only one or two in a particular area which is great for exploring further afield but it is nice to have more walks without a long drive to get to the start point.”

“A real delight – it offers up so many informative pieces of historical interest for you to look much deeper in the vicinity while walking in the beautiful surrounds.”
