The Lake District is beautiful at any time of year, but in the autumn the colours come alive. The green ferns turn to brown and the mountains take on an auburn hue.
The harbour town of Fowey is about an hour’s drive west of Plymouth and is easily accessible from the A30. Once there you’re in a maze of small streets set around a natural harbour with views across the Fowey River to the village of Polruan. It’s still a working port, exporting China Clay from the deep water harbour.
