Afterwards, board another ferry for a short journey across the estuary to Philleigh and begin your walk down the Roseland Peninsula, at times inland and at times alongside the estuary. Walk via the lovely village of St Just-in-Roseland where there is an exquisite 13th century church with its famed gardens. Paths lead you past flower beds of rhododendrons, magnolias, camellias, azaleas, bamboos, wild garlic and bluebells.
