For families, the popular beaches of Booby's Bay, Constantine Bay and Mother Ivey's Bay are all within a 15 minute drive along narrow lanes.
The attractive village of St Mawgan is two miles up the vale from the beach and has a traditional village inn and a 13th century church with one of the finest collections of monumental brasses in the country.
Further afield, the busy resort of Newquay offers many attractions including its aquarium, zoo, Trenance Gardens and plenty of shops, bars and bistros, while the Eden Project is only 14 miles away.
