Only ten minutes' drive from Lostwithiel, the house is perfectly positioned for visitors to enjoy this attractive and interesting part of South Cornwall. For walkers there are quiet footpaths, or the South West Coastal Path which passes though ancient towns and villages such as Looe and Polperro (approx. 5 miles) and Fowey (8 miles); and many sandy beaches are also within easy reach.

The whole region is full of historic and literary associations – Lostwithiel was once the county capital and the house Daphne Du Maurier wrote from is just the other side of the estuary. The National Trust property of Llanhydrock, the Eden Project near St. Austell and many fine gardens make interesting day excursions.
