A 1602 survey of Cornwall noted this walk as ‘a place of diversified pleasings’ and now owned by the National Trust it remains one of the most popular Fowey walks. The estuary views are incredible and this circular walk largely sticks to the banks of the River Fowey (which inspired Kennth Grahame’s ‘Tales of the Riverbank’).
Hall Walk also includes two journeys by ferry (one to Bodinnick and one to Polruan) and the opportunity to extend the walk to Polruan. One of the best things about this route is the number of benches you’ll find along the way as they offer plenty of opportunity for a well earned rest while you take in the scenery.
You’ll pass through historic woodland and beautiful creeks as you make your way along this trail and although dogs are more than welcome they will need to stay close as some of the fields are home to livestock. This walk isn’t recommended for those with pushchairs or wheelchair users, and it’s worth noting that sections of it are quite steep.
