Lots to see and do in Merrymeet!
South coast hotspots include Downderry and Seaton - walk at low tide from one to the other spotting seals along the way. Also the stunning string of beaches that make up Whitsand Bay, some utterly secluded at the base of steep cliff paths. Or hit the north coast and check out the likes of Watergate Bay for serious surf and sensational food at celebrity eateries.
For sailing, cycling, fishing and extreme sports like high wire and wake boarding, try Siblyback Lake about ten minutes by car. Otherwise opt for awesome adventures at Adrenalin Quarry. The local riding stables offers guided hacks, you can hire canoes on the River Tamar while, for walks and wildlife, don't miss Golitha Falls National Nature Reserve, a local beauty spot on the southern edge of Bodmin Moor.
Take little ones to watch Amazonian woolly monkeys forage and play at the award-winning Monkey Sanctuary. Or learn about the region's tin and copper mining past at the Minions Heritage Centre. National Trust gems include Cotehele and Lanhydrock House, the first featuring a Tudor house and riverside gardens, the second a magnificent Victorian estate with bluebell woods. And for shopping, restaurants and other amenities, the historic town of Liskeard is just down the road.
