Feock

All Destinations » UK » Cornwall » Feock

With picture-book good looks, this quiet riverside village in southern Cornwall has all the elements for an idyllic, peaceful stay.

One of the best ways of approaching this beautiful backwater is by river, as Feock is planted right on the banks of a network of waterways known as the Carrick Roads. Wildlife enthusiasts love these parts, with peaceful creeks and inlets, and birds nesting in the wooded valleys. The King Harry ferry that takes cars and foot traffic across the waters between Feock and Philleigh, just opposite, has been making the trip since the late 19th century, and plenty of other boat services run between surrounding settlements, so boating enthusiasts can spend days here pootling about on the local waters.

Central to the village of Feock, standard for any old town, is the pretty church of St Feoca, dating back to the 12th century then rebuilt in later years: what sets it aside is the fact that its tower is several metres from the main church. As with many little Cornish inlets, several walking routes are on hand for a range of abilities; pick the one that ambles along to the very beautiful Trelissick House and Gardens (set on a neighbouring peninsula), and spend an afternoon following the garden paths, walking the dog in the woodlands, or perusing the art gallery inside the house: spot the works from local artists.
