About this location
The Cornwall region
The spirit of Cornwall remains undimmed and gives great and lasting pleasure and invaluable memories to all that visit. It is a place to take to the heart. Our local area is known as Cornwall's forgotten south east corner. The Rame Peninsula is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a landscape of tidal creeks, sandy beaches, lush farmland and country parks. Mount Edgecombe country park is half an hour drive away and has stunning coastal views and a wonderful formal and informal gardens, perfect for picnicking and leisurely strolls The house too, is often open with access to many exhibitions. There are wonderful historic houses and gardens to visit. Our personal favourites are ancient Cotehele, the jewel in the crown of the National Trust in Cornwall. It is a house with a unique family history and medieval buildings,kitchen and great hall. Other local National Trust properties of note are Elizabethan Trerice, lovely Lanhydrock (a grand house with a fab Edwardian restaurant) and Anthony House on the Tor Point peninsular( a predominantly Georgian house with magnificent furnishings lovely gardens and a great tea room). Pencarrow house too is a truly remarkable walk through family history, privately owned with a timeless quality that will make you want to spend a whole day there. It also has a quaint courtyard cafe. Do look up historic houses and gardens of Cornwall this is a land steeped in legend and history.
The local scenery is pleasing and varied. Small villages hide at the heads of creeks, waiting to be discovered, whilst the stretch of coast fronting onto Whitsand Bay offers fantastic views and great walking along the South West Coast Path. Golitha Falls nearby are one of my choices for submerging myself in nature; rocky waterfalls tumble over mossy boulders and there are forest trails and you will hear the call of many interesting birds..
There is so much to see and do in Cornwall all the year round! Summer is fantastic but we love the winter months too. Nothing beats a sunny winters day, strolling along the beach, or sitting around the log fire in the pub at lunchtime. We benefit from a very mild, temperate climate on the sheltered south cornish coast and are frequently the warmest and sunniest place in the UK, especially during the winter months.
Heading west is LOOE, a popular fishing village with sandy beach, pubs, cafes and shops, you can fish, go crabbing or take a boat from its quay. On from Looe walk the spectacular coast path or drive to TALLAND BAY and indulge in the Talland Bay Beach Cafe's home-made cakes or cream tea. Carry on the coast path or drive to one of Cornwall's most famous, the historic, picture postcard fishing village of POLPERRO. Narrow streets, Cornish slate cottages, quaint pubs and shops.
Further on and worth a visit is FOWEY, especially cream tea in Pinky Murphy's cafe.
Head east from our property and the drive is jaw dropping looking down over WHITSAND BAY, a 5 mile stretch of sand and rocks. Its great for walking and surfing and make time for lunch at The View restaurant, or the CLIFF TOP CAFE hidden a short walk from the road opposite the caravan park. From here walk out to RAME HEAD and then drive/walk onto KINGSAND/CAWSAND, very pretty, sheltered ajoining fishing vlllages with 2 beaches, great pubs, and cafe and nearby are 800 acres of walking at MOUNT EDGECOMBE PARK. A pedestrian ferry takes you to Plymouth or car ferry from Torpoint to Plymouth.
Inland, don't forget The Eden Project, the National Trust house and garden Lanhydrock, Antony House, Lost Gardens of Heligan and Bodmin Moor. Lostwithiel is also a must for art and antique shopping. The north coast can be reached in 45minutes, if you fancy Rick Steins fish and chips head for Padstow. Horse riding is available at two nearby stables.
Whitsand Bay, in the south east of Cornwall, is recognisable for its lengthy sandy beaches and sweeping cliffs. With four miles of sheltered beaches running to Rame Head, and a rugged cliff-lined coast – Whitsand Bay holidays are perfect for those who love to enjoy the great outdoors. Nearby Downderry is a small, unassuming village with its own beach, which is a great base to explore this beautiful area. Whitsand Bay and Downderry holiday cottages offer a Cornish escape in picturesque surroundings.
Whitsand Bay is a great spot for fishing, and is popular with both sea and beach anglers. The Bay is also perfect for those who enjoy rambling, especially as the South West Coast Path runs through the bay connecting the Rame Peninsula and Looe. As well as the Coast Path, the Whitsand and Downderry area offers a variety of different walks. Activities for children; top quality beaches, rock-pooling, the :ooe and Tamar historic railway line, thr monkey sanctuary animal park and a little further afield the Eden Project
Downderry is a tiny fishing village,but it has all the amenities you need, The Inn on the Shore pub overlooking the sea, a post office and well stocked shop and a restaurant, The Blue Plate renowned for it's excellent food and great service. The beach is a mix of sand and shingle and is great for relaxing or exploring and has had the highest cleanliness rating for the last 15 years!. For those with children the rock pools are fantastic, remember to put all your 'treasure' safely back! You can walk along the beach at low tide all the way to Shag Rock, a stunning beautiful walk which is usually very quiet, you may not even meet anyone! Nearby is Seaton another small village which can be walked to easily along the beach in 20 minutes from Downderry. It has a cafe overlooking the sea, with great outdoor seating to watch the waves whilst enjoying hot chocolate and reading the paper - maybe even a portion of cheesy chips! Seaton has a country park which includes a children's playpark, adults outdoor gym and nature trails up the valley. It is a lovely walk up to the top of the valley where you can stop at the Copley Arms for lunch before strolling back down.
There are many attractions in the area that are great for all the family, a for example The Monkey Sanctuary (10 mins), Looe (10 mins) Polperro (20 mins), the Eden Project (45 minutes), Fowey (30 mins). For the keen golfer the Whitsand Bay Golf Club, Looe Golf Club, and the St Mellion Championship Course are all nearby.
Whitsand Bay is a great spot for fishing, and is popular with both sea and beach anglers.

"A wonderful family holiday!"
We had the pleasure of staying at Shore View at the end of May. The house is wonderful, with everything a family could possibly need on hand. Kate's communication before arrival was amazing and certainly made the start of our holiday easier. Me, my husband and our three kids, 17, 12 and 10 had a lovely relaxing time. The views from the house are truly stunning and the photos on the advert don't do the location justice! The beach is wonderful and we enjoyed more than one walk along to Seaton, the café there is highly recommended and our boys also had great fun playing in the river. The weather was warm, lovely local cider and pasties were enjoyed and we will most definitely be going back as our boys said “it was their best holiday ever!” the youngest cried when it was time to leave.

"Wonderful all-you-can-ask-for holiday home with breathtaking views"
We had an absolutely wonderful time at Shore View. The house is modern, spacious, fully-equipped with amazing views. It was our first stay in an eco house and certainly will not be our last. It is amazing how warm it was even when it was a little cold outside - without 'heating' as we know it. Kate was a goldmine of useful information which was great for practical purposes but also led us to the most delightful places and things to see, eat and enjoy. The people in the local area, well - everywhere we went actually, were all very friendly and made us feel welcome.
