Around the area...

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

For water-sport enthusiasts, Siblyback Lake, surrounded by the beautiful Bodmin Moor, is approximately 5 miles away.

The lake offers a wide range of activities beside or on the water with canoeing or windsurfing, trout fishing and SW Wakeboarding - the only clockwise cable in the whole of the U.K. There is a 3.5 mile long cycle path, which also offers wheelchair access, around the entire lake and cycle hire is available. There is also a children's play area and café overlooking the water.

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.

We have several stunning National Trust properties nearby: Lanhydrock, Cotehele and Antony, home to Alice in Wonderland.

If you enjoy horse riding - or are a complete novice - riding on Bodmin Moor is a ride to remember. There is also riding at Herodsfoot and many other local stables.

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, see their website for details.

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.

There's plenty of opportunities for cycling and walking at Cardinham Woods and at the Lanhydrock cycle trails.

Minions is the highest village in Cornwall, also boasting the highest pub in Cornwall which serves excellent food. From here you can walk out to the Cheesewring, explore Daniel Gumb's cave on the side of the Cheesewring Quarry or discover the legend behind the standing stones by visiting the Heritage Centre.

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…
