A truly special part of Cornwall, Feock is just four miles from the capital Truro yet feels like a hidden sanctuary, situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. For those who appreciate life on the water at Feock the Carnon River and Restronguet Creek is on one side, while the River Fal is on the other.
Nearby is National Trust owned Trelissick, a welcoming 18th century house and garden set in an estate with stunning maritime views and lovely woodland walks, which is a must-see when in the area. Visitors will appreciate the enveloping countryside surrounded by the River Fal, there’s a historic park, woodland, and even an Iron Age promontory fort and 18th-century quay.
With a rich history, during the 19th century near to Feock there were several boatyards, building small ships for an area rich in minerals, particularly tin. There was a major port at nearby Devoran and later a railway line. Nowadays the closest train station to Feock is Perranwell Station which is five miles away, adding to its secluded feel.
Feock potentially dates back over 3000 years, and the parish church takes its name from the little-known Saint Fioc or Feoca.
Naturally, a great way to visit nearby Cornish destinations once at Feock is on the water. The King Harry Ferry was established in 1888, connecting St Mawes and the Roseland Peninsula with Feock, Truro and Falmouth – this avoids the road alternative 27 mile route. One of only five chain ferries in England, King Harry Ferry departs every 20 minutes from each side, 7 days a week.
