Readymoney Cove from St Catherine's Castle

Readymoney Cove (Cornish: Porth Mundy, meaning mineral house cove) is a sandy beach to the south of the harbour town of Fowey, Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is sheltered by cliffs close to the mouth of the River Fowey estuary and bounded, on one side, by the medieval part of the town of Fowey and, on the other, by St Catherine's Castle.[1] The beach can be covered during spring tides. The beach is cleaned daily during high season, and a bathing platform is moored in the bay. Dogs are banned between Easter and 30 September. Above the cove is the former coach house which was the home of author, Daphne du Maurier, for a few years during the Second World War. Comedian Dawn French lives in a house overlooking the cove.
