The West Country region
Cornwall is renowned for its rugged moorland scenery, spectacular coastline and charming villages. All of which are within easy reach of the cottage.
North Cornwall is famous for its beaches and harbours. Perhaps best know are Padstow (Rick Stein) and Port Isaac (Doc Martin). Both are within easy reach of the cottage and even nearer is the very pleasant town of Wadebridge where there are ample parking facilities. Much of the town is pedestrianised and contains numerous shops catering for a variety of interests.
The famous Eden Project is only 15 miles away and, for real garden enthusiasts, the Lost Gardens of Heligan are just a 20 mile drive away.
For walkers, in addition to the South West Coastal Path, St Mabyn is well situated for exploring Bodmin Moor and in particular Brown Willy, the highest point in Cornwall.
Golfers are also well catered for, with courses at Rock (Daymer Bay GC) and St Enodoc. There is also a nine hole golf course just two miles away at St Kew..
The harbours of Padstow and Port Isaac are well worth a visit, although at peak times they can become very busy and parking can be a problem. The nearest beach is at Polzeath where there is an excellent sandy beach and plenty of parking. Further beaches can be found along the eastern side of the Camel estuary, particularly at Rock and Daymer Bay. A passenger ferry operates from Rock to Padstow, where you can spend a very pleasant few hours browsing the shops and taking in the various cafes and restaurants.
The famous Camel Trail (once an old railway track linking Wadebridge to Padstow) is well worth exploring on foot or on a bicycle, which can be hired from either Wadebridge or Padstow.
