Around the area...

Our beautiful area of Cornwall has an abundance of activities to choose from.

For Water Sports enthusiast SIBLYBACK LAKE offers trout fishing, a 5K circular trail around the lake either for walking or cycling and is suitable for wheelchairs and mobility scooters . With equipment hire available you can go kayaking, canoeing, paddle boarding, wind surfing, rowing etc. A new children's play area and a café overlooking the water.

We have several stunning NATIONAL TRUST PROPERTIES nearby, Lanhydrock, Cotehele, Antony House. Though not a NT property it is well worth a visit to Mount Edgcumbe House & Gardens overlooking Plymouth Sound and Dockyard.

If you enjoy HORSE RIDING or are a complete novice, riding over Bodmin Moor is a ride to remember try Hallagenna Riding or closer to Liggars, Polmartin Riding at Herodsfoot approximately 5 miles away.

If it's EXCITEMENT & ADVENTURE that you are after a visit to the Adrenaline Quarry is a must with equipment hire you can go carting , jump of a cliff (zip wire) defy gravity, try axe throwing, wipeout at the Aqua Park and open water swimming. Fun for all the family.

For you RAIL ENTHUSIASTS, try a trip on the Bodmin & Wenford Steam Railway - or the scenic Looe Valley branch line that runs from Liskeard to Looe: this 9 mile line runs through heavily wooded valley, with river, railway and remains of the Liskeard - Looe Union Canal running alongside each other.

There are plenty of opportunities for CYCLING & WALKING at Cardinham Woods, Lanhydrock cycle trails or the Camel trail that goes from Bodmin to Padstow.

MINIONS is the highest village in Cornwall. From here you can walk out to the Cheeswring, explore Daniel Gumb's cave on the side of the Cheesewring Quarry or discover the legend behind the Hurlers standing stones by visiting the Heritage Centre.

Or if what lives in the SEA is of more interest, there are daily fishing trips from Looe & Polperro. Or take a boat trip around St George's Island or to Polperro and Fowey - weather and tides permitting.

Any GOLFERS out there would be delighted with the Jack-Nicklaus designed golf course at St Mellion or the nine hole Golf Course at Doublebois, being only 3 miles away. There are also golf courses at Lanhydrock and Looe Bindown.

For those interested in ANIMALS we have the Porfell Animal Land and The Monkey Sanctuary nearby.

CARNGLAZE CAVERNS, just 15 minutes away, is now part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and provides an exciting and interesting attraction with daily tours of the underground caverns. Evening concerts are also held in the caverns.

GOLITHA FALLS - this National Nature Reserve is an area of woodland occupying a steep-sided valley gorge, with the River Fowey flowing through it in a series of spectacular cascades. To appreciate the wild flowers of the area it is best to visit between April and July, but the river and falls can be enjoyed at any time of the year.

Or for an evening of entertainment visit STERTS THEATRE, a canopied amphitheatre nestling comfortably in the grassy side of Bodmin Moor. From Shakespeare to jazz, orchestra to plays, musicals to tribute bands, there's something to suit all tastes.

Slightly further a field, approx 45 minutes drive, THE EDEN PROJECT, boasts the largest rainforest in captivity and is a fantastic family day out, as is THE LOST GARDENS OF HELIGAN

These are just a few of our local attractions, there is so much more to discover…
