There are many wonderful places to visit within a few miles of the Globe Inn. The picturesque village of Fowey is a few miles away, by car or boat, with its steep harbour, sailing and fishing activities and annual Festival. Polruan is a short ferry trip across the harbour. There are several lovely beaches nearby, including Readymoney Cove, Polkerris, Polridmouth, and Par Sands. A number of very nice circular walks begin and end at Lostwithiel, and ‘Lostwithiel Beach’ is a favourite spot to relax by the river and the old medieval bridge. St Winnow, with its ancient riverside church, is three miles from Lostwithiel – Angie and John Stevens serve the best pasties and cream teas in the area here. The lovely creekside village of Lerryn is a mile or two further down the road from St Winnow, and well worth a visit. Heading towards St Austell, the fascinating port of Charlestown, with its old sailing ships, is a short drive away.
