Owing to the perfect location you also have the option of both Devon and Cornwall to explore if you wish to venture further afield.
Viewtown Linhay is only a 30 minute walk away from Cotehele, a wonderful National Trust property that also sits on the route of many other walks in the local area. The estuary will be a memory that will last forever as river watching can see a few hours slip by. Not to be forgotten is Pentillie Castle and Estate and the wonderful Halton Quay. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to planning your holiday, there are simply countless glorious walks to enjoy no matter the season.
Viewtown Linhay is adjoined to the owners' bungalow but is completely separate and is accessed via your own private front door with a well thought out layout offering space throughout. The entrance hall links the front door to the back door where you will find your own private patio with a fitted screen. The gardens are open and free for you to enjoy and you also have your own private walk through the owners' fields which has been clearly marked. An added bonus is that as guests of the owners you have access to a private woodland which is situated yards from your front door.

Cross the Tamar and majestic Dartmoor with its rugged landscapes and dramatic granite tors is waiting to be discovered, or visit the maritime city of Plymouth to stroll around the historic Barbican and Plymouth Hoe.
The golf courses at St Mellion and China Fleet Club are well worth a putt and of course when in Cornwall a trip to the seaside is a must whether it's strolling along the beaches of Downderry and Seaton, riding the Atlantic rollers at Widemouth Bay or simply savouring some good old fish and chips in Looe.
