The Cornwall region

South Cornwall: between the river Tamar and river Fowey and south of Bodmin Moor is inland Cornwall at its most gentle and lovely: deep, wooded valleys (including on Bodmin Moor�s southern edge) between sheep and cattle-grazed fields; tidal creeks (exceptionally pretty Lerryn is on one of them). Most of it is delightfully by-passed by main roads.

On the coast are long sandy beaches (Whitsand Bay), high headlands and sandy coves at the foot of cliffs (Lantic Bay) to walk to, two of Cornwall�s loveliest cove villages (Kingsand, Cawsand) and a classic fishing village (Polperro). From Looe - river-mouth fishing village/resort with sandy beach - you can fish and sail. Round here Daphne du Maurier lived and wrote. A branch line railway chugs pleasantly from Liskeard to Looe. Don�t miss the Musical Instrument Museum near St Keyne. Just to the west is Cornwall�s star modern attraction, The Eden Project, worth a once-a-year visit into the future indefinite, and Lanhydrock, a very lovely National Trust house and garden. Beyond them begins the extraordinary and spectacular china clay country, good for a visit (excellent museum). You should go to Cotehele beside the Tamar, too, and Calstock for the �messing about in boats� activity.

Millbrook

Millbrook: old village (pub, shops, children's park, lake) at the head of a creek off the river Tamar (boating/birdwatching), a mile from the sea at Whitsand Bay (sandy beach) and Kingsand. Cremyll (good pub) and fine houses at Mount Edgcumbe (impressive gardens) and Antony (Nat. Trust), 3 miles. From Cremyll, pedestrian ferry to Plymouth (theatre, shops, entertainments), or 7 miles by car ferry.
