The Cornwall region
Lansallos is a pretty and tiny coastal village set amidst the National Trust, a favourite with walkers and backpackers in the know. Leading from the old village church is a picturesque 15 minutes footpath walk down to Lansallos sandy beach. Experience the spectacular coastal walks with small sandy coves and beaches stretching all along the coast. In one direction you can walk all along the coast to Polperro a mere 2 miles further up the coast, and again onwards to Looe. In the opposite direction there are coastal walks the 4 miles to Polruan where you can take the ferry across the river to Fowey. Nearby Polperro is usually said to be the prettiest fishing village in Cornwall (after parking the car there is a choice of 4 ways to reach the harbour and village at the bottom of the hill - by horse bus, piscie carriage, landrover, or by foot a fifteen minutes walk). Polperro has a beautiful harbour, unique shops, pubs, cafes and whitwashed cottages ablaze with hanging baskets full of flowers. There is a small fish aquarium by the harbour (interesting as it hosts local fish species that can be caught off Polperro). A few miles further on from Polperro is larger Looe fishing village with a good size sandy beach. Boat mackerel fishing trips, beach side cafes, old pubs and retaurants (renowned for its fish restaurants) and lots of individual touristy shops. Looe is a working fishing village with lots of character, a real tourist attraction. Looe has a hidden away huge car park (on the Polperro side of Looe bridge) and a main attraction of Looe is that the sandy beach conveniently adjoins the old Inns, eating places, shops and cafes. Visit the city of Plymouth for the day, which is a 17 mile car trip away. Or enjoy the numerous National Trust houses and gardens of East Cornwall such as Mount Edgecumbe house and gardens. St Austell and the Eden Project are about 12 miles further down the coast.
