Nearest pub

Rod and Line (2 ½ miles)

Everything you'd expect from a proper Cornish pub, but with better-than-expected food.

Nearest beach

Hoodny Cove (1 ¼ miles)

This sandy cove is quite sheltered and offers a good safe place to swim. There are also great places to snorkel at high tide.

Nearest walk

Sheviock to Portwinkle Circular (with an extra bit) (1 ¼ miles)

A lovely circular walk which will take three hours to complete following road, lanes and footpaths. The route passes streams, conservation areas and a fishing lake. Take a look at the iwalkcornwall website for a detailed route.

Nearest town

Portwrinkle (1 ½ miles)

Around the Rame Peninsula from Plymouth is the cleanest bay of water you can find, bordered by a Site of Special Scientific Interest and many a view-filled walk to busy yourself with. The village itself is a collection of converted pilchard cllars dating back from pilchard-selling days, giving an insight into olde worlde Cornwall living.

Also nearby

Finnygook Beach (1 ¾ miles)

Beautiful sand and pebble beach, popular with surfers and bodyboarders. Short walk from car park (get there early in summer!) and cafe nearby. Finnygook is the eastern end of Portwrinkle, which itself consists of two beaches and marks the western extremity of Whitsand Bay.

Gorgeous sandy beach just the right size for letting children run free while small enough to still keep an eye on them. Convenient car park and small cafe. Slightly off the beaten track so a great place to get away from the crowds.

Downderry Beach (2 ½ miles)

Sand and shingle, Downderry Beach comes into its own at low tide. With lots of rock pools to explore and sheltered inlets offering private spots to sit and enjoy the sunshine, there is plenty of room for everyone. Although access to the main beach is easy, the eastern end is reached by a steep cliff path and many coves become cut off at high tide. The eastern end of Downderry Beach is a favourite amongst naturists.

wind and rain blown...but lovely

We walked and walked along here to get some "air" on the windiest wettest day of half term! We sand blasted all of our features smooth as there was a little too much air with sand! Young & old enjoyed ooing & aaaing at the beautiful pebbles and rock pools, though the kids could barely stand up straight for long! Would DEFINITELY like to return on a day with less "weather" !

Beach and food

Although staying just near Downderry we did not venture here to the last day but wished we had spent longer here - very clean and very long stretch of beach. The best evening meal we had here too at The Blue Plate - and suggest you book or you will have to be seated if room in the conservatory, it was superb - a little pricey and adults only really but really really good quality and plenty of locals eating there which speaks volumes!

Port Eliot Festival (1 ¼ miles)

The Best of Lit and Music

Part lit fest, part music fest. Port Eliot takes all the best bits of a literary festival - Q&A's with your favourite authors, showcasing work from new writers and poets – and mixes them with the vibe of a music festival. One of the highlights at last year's festival (2010) was Jarvis Cocker taking over the decks for a late night DJ session in the dance tent. There is already excitement building around this year's festival with the announcement that legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese will be curating the Paradiso Outdoor Cinema.

Blue Plate Restaurant (2 ½ miles)

Situated in the heart of Downderry, this restaurant offers a choice of dining in the main restaurant, conservatory, private "chefs table" or the terrace for al fresco dining in summer. The food is simple and no fuss using fresh, local produce.

A thrilling experience

Gorgeous meals, good wines, very kind staff, friendly atmosphere.
We'd love to come back.

Seaton (Cornwall) (3 miles)

More of a hamlet than a village, Seaton has its own beach and a quaint village green. Along the coast is the much busier Looe, a lively resort that straddles a river and edges up the sides of a deep wooded valley. Seaton’s biggest attraction is undoubtedly the Monkey Sanctuary, home to a colony of Woolly monkeys and a group of Capuchin monkeys, all of which are guaranteed to melt the heart.

Dog friendly beach & nature reserve.

Seaton has a really lovely beach where dogs are able to walk easily, right around to neighbouring Downderry. There's a really nice beach café and pub right on the front and a very useful 'village green' area right on onto the beach too for picnics/kids play area, with a car park attached (there are around 12 free parking spaces around the green itself, a real rarity these days too). But the hidden treasure is the nature reserve directly at the back of the car park - you and the dogs can walk two miles to neighbouring Hessenford, through a beautiful wooded pathway, with lovely small lakes and smaller 'otter trails' along the way. A really wonderful surprise which you simply must explore!
