Black Rock, Millendreath has its own private beach and a small shop. The new beach front cafe which won the coverted TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence 2015 serves wonderful breakfasts, drinks, snacks and evening meals.
The valley is very peaceful and we have pretty Looe just 1 mile away, with quirky shops to wander around, a good selection of restaurants and a small nightclub. There are lovely walks from the villa, through the woods, which are blanketed with Bluebells in the Spring or a half an hour stroll across the cliff tops from Millendreath into Looe. If you are feeling adventurous you can take the beach route at low tide exploring the rock pools as you go.
At high tide Black Rock beach is small, however once the tide is out it reveals a big sandy beach and dozens of rock pools. Millendreath has a jetty, which provides enclosed sheltered bathing at high tide or a very popular place for the local or visiting fisherman to wile away a few hours fishing.
The valley enjoys a particularly mild climate so is an ideal location for a short break. We often pop down down for a long week-end recharge and we can offer very competitive rates throughout the year.
There are so many wonderful places to explore from the Eden Project & the enchanting Lost Gardens of Heligan both approximately only 25 miles away to The Monkey Sanctuary (10 minutes drive) which all make for fantastic days out for the whole family.
The beautiful old fishing port of Mevagissy is 27 miles away and even the north coast towns of Newquay and Padstow are within one hours driving time from your holiday villa. The old fishing port of Polperro is 5 miles away, but if you would like to try a spot of fishing for yourself you can hire a skippered boat in Looe for deepsea, shark, conger or mackerel. Other amenities close by include horse riding stables, golf courses, sea and course fishing.
