There is one visitors buoy @ £15 up to 9m up to £21 max. Modern block of 2 showers. Convenient for 15 min walk via permissive path to King Harry ferry (free for pedestrians) or dinghy down to Trelissick pontoon.Possible to moor on pontoon head with prior permission (same price). Very weedy stretch of river and risk of being ‘weed locked’ on pontoon. Landlord taking back control next April 2019 so could change again.
