Walking near Portmellon Trip to Fowey Porthcurno Lost Gardens of Heligan Walk around Fowey inlet Return

At the end of June 2009 we had a family holiday in Portmellon, Cornwall. Along with my parents and their old dog Max, we were joined by my sister Margaret and her son Jonathan and his fiancée Alice.

Portmellon is a small cove near Mevagissey. The apartments were right next to the Pub, the Rising Sun, and about 50 metres from the beach. From Mevagissey there is a ferry to Fowey, one of the most beautiful towns in Cornwall. Also near Mevagissey are the fabled “Lost Gardens of Heligan” which have been restored to their former glory.
