On the creek side, a large, enclosed grassy garden; at the back, ponies graze beyond a fence. Ten minute walk to the good pub at Devoran. Restronguet Creek is a haven for birdlife; lots of beautiful walks and gardens nearby.

The West Country region
Cornwall's 'Med': here is Cornwall at its warmest, most sheltered; of creeks and tidal waters penetrating deep inland, deep in woods, silent except for birdsong; of wonderful gardens growing things that live nowhere else outdoors in England (marvellous in rhododendron, camellia, magnolia time, from March to end of May especially); of sailing boats everywhere decorating the sea; of harbour villages where the light is Mediterranean - dazzling in the sunshine. And really very little that is ugly has been allowed to be built.
Here is Truro, Cornwall's (small) capital, with its 20th century cathedral; Falmouth, resort town and cargo/cruise ship/yacht port, superbly sited; and the glorious Helford River. Trewithen, Trelissick, Glendurgan, Trebah, Heligan (Lost Gardens of) and Caerhays are among the finest gardens. In the very middle of Cornwall, Lanhydrock house is very special, so is its garden. Not the greatest area for beaches, but good sandy ones near Veryan and Portscatho, in St Mawes, and around Falmouth and the Helford River's mouth. Not to be missed is St Just-in-Roseland's churchyard; nor - within easy reach - is The Eden Project (see South Cornwall).
Feock: sprawling village (church) almost hidden in trees, eyeing lazily an extensive estuary with creeks and open sea beyond. Boats/yachts on sheltered water, shingle beach for launching dinghies; sailing/windsurfing/canoeing lessons; beach café. Golf nearby. Trelissick Gardens (Nat. Trust) and the King Harry Ferry to the Roseland Peninsula. Creek-side walks. Truro (cathedral city), 5 miles. Falmouth, 7.
