A relaxed day's walking, the path crosses through Par and on to the viewpoint at Gribbon Head. Walk through literary history and past castle ruins as you make your way to Fowey.
The path crosses the wide Par Sands before entering the wild and remote area at Gribbin Head, a fabulous viewpoint marked with a candy striped daymark tower which stands 84 feet above the cliffs.
The Daphne Du Maurier coastline follows where much of her novels were written and inspiration sought. At Polridmouth a hidden beach opens to reveal the boathouse where the author lived for many years. The path into Fowey passes many coves and St Catherine’s Castle perched on the cliffs. Wander through the remains before you finally reach the village of Fowey with its many bars and restaurants.
