The West Country region
The West Country - the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset - enjoys a milder climate than much of England, and consequently Cornwall has long been a popular summer getaway.
The area provides the best surfing in England, with towns like Newquay, Bude and Croyde filling with enthusiasts every year. There is excellent walking on Bodmin Moor, domain of the legendary beast, and the coastline is wild and beautiful.
This major city with excellent shopping is only 5 miles away.
It has the national marine aquarium with the deepest Shark pool on Europe. 14th century Barbican is a great place to eat and shop. They do regular boat trips around the dockyard and naval base where one can always see destroyers,frigates and nuclear submarines. They often carry out full sea trials and exercises in the bay opposite your accommodation.
Cornish fishing port is about half hour drive and great for a day out. Also day fishing trips can easily be arranged. You may even catch a shark!! In the immediate area is a plethoria of activities including rock climbing and treaking on Bodmin moor. Various steam trains, quad biking, go carting, paint balling, course / fly fishing and many facilities especially tailored for families.
Portwrinkle is a sleepy fishing village with a small harbour and 2 beaches.
It also has the Whitsand Bay Hotel and the spectacular 18 hole Golf course. The coastal footpath meanders through. The beaches are both sandy with many rock pools and are considered safe. They are both blue flag beaches. The large city of Plymouth is only 5 miles away and the pretty town of Looe is also 5 miles away.
We have concessions at the adjoining Whitsand Bay Golf course and have concession at 15 others within easy reach including St. Mellion, Carlyon Bay and China Fleet.
The Whitsand Bay Golf course is a par 69 and 6000 yards long. It has spectacular views and dates from around 1907. Once past the 1st it is pretty level and is always very well maintained. It actually is a good test for both low and high handicappers.
Portwrinkle: Two shale – sandy beaches widely used in favourable conditions for surfing. Small harbour and many interesting rock pools to paddle in and explore.
Kingsand and Cawsand: Good beaches in both villages with ample off street parking.
Freathy and Tregantle: Excellent, sandy beaches stretching 6 miles along the bay. You may need to climb down steep rocks.
Downderry and Seaton: Miles of sandy beach with easy access. Good parking by the beach in Seaton.
The South West Coastal Path runs 300 yards away in Portwrinkle. Portwrinkle itself lies midway between Polperro and Plymouth for more experienced walkers and midway between Looe and Kingsand / Cawsand for those wishing to do fewer miles each day.
In addition to the Coast Path there are many more interesting walks. Depending on the tide it is possible to walk along the beach from Portwrinkle to Rame Head or from Downderry to Seaton.
A pleasant country walk is the new path between Seaton and Hessonford. Here you are able to walk along a valley by the sea.
Portwrinkle: some commercial fishing – no boat trips. Good fishing from both the rocks and beach.
Crafthole: here is a small coarse fishing reservoir – carp fishing is exceptional.
Bake Lakes: scenic fishery offering coarse and fly fishing in a beautiful landscape where rare dragonflies and a great variety of wildlife can be found in abundance. There are three fly lakes, one is a specimen lake.
Kingsand and Cawsand: small amount of commercial fishing with some boat trips. Beach fishing.
Looe: shark fishing centre of Europe. Many fishing trips – half, full day and night fishing readily available.

Galleries: the Barbican area of Plymouth with its waterside bars, restaurants, art galleries and craft shops is well worth a visit.
A gallery must in the Barbican is the late Robert Lenkiewicz’s Gallery and if you enquire in the gallery it may be possible to arrange to visit his old studio.
In addition you are within a short car journey of St Ives with its wonderful light and the famous Tate Gallery.
Well worth a visit.
