Excellent food, and good service. The only disappointment was the dessert "raspberry trifle" which was little more than a raspberry flavoured jelly in a glass.

Nearest beach

Port Gaverne Cove (3 ½ miles)

Due to its sheltered nature this narrow cove is very safe for children offering a small sandy beach with rock pools to explore at low tide. In a peaceful beach-front village around the headland of Port Isaac, the beach is overlooked by high cliffs on either side with amenities close to hand.

Pretty and safe beach for children

We spent a lovely day on the beach at Port Gaverne - exploring rockpools at high tide and paddling in the safe shallow sandy waters at low tide. Finished off with a beach barbeque and grilled some fresh mackerel landed from a friendly fisherman's boat. Perfect.

Nearest walk

St Kew Round Walk (1 ¾ miles)

Take this five and a half mile ramble from St Kew to the villages of St Endillion and Tregellist. The walk takes in a woodland path and country lanes. Pop in to Trevathan fruit farm en-route. Take a look at the iwalkcormwall website for further details and other lovely walks in the area.

Nearest town

Wadebridge (1 ¾ miles)

Popular among cyclists (Wadebridge sits right on the Camel Trail), Wadebridge also draws many for its unique shops and cafes. The River Camel sweeps majestically through Wadebridge; along its banks, ‘twitchers’ can be seen excitedly spotting any number of wading bird varieties, including herons.

A must for cyclists!

This town was heaving with people wanting to hire bikes. I would advise anyone wanting to hire bikes to book them in advance as we didn't and they were all gone by 10am! Still, we decided to walk along the Camel Trail instead, and although walkers are given priority, we were in a tiny minority and not appreciated by the cyclists!! The walk is lovely and worth it though.

Also nearby

St Kew Pottery (1 ¾ miles)

Feeling artistic? Try your hand at some pottery, still life or life drawing classes with potter Jon Whitten. Jon, whose work can be found in collections in Europe, Japan, New Zealand and the US, specialises in contemporary, wheel thrown pottery, a large collection of which is on display here, and is available to buy.

If the weather is not so good!

I should have said whether the weather is good or bad an interesting couple of hours learning the art of pottery with your host Jon. Can even take your works of art (or otherwise!) back home with you. Thank you, Jon.

St Kew Inn (1 ¾ miles)

This 15th Century village pub was once home to the masons and craftsmen who constructed the nearby church of St James the Great. Today, you will find a welcoming bar and restaurant, with blazing fire in the winter, and a large beer garden for those balmy Cornish summer evenings. Look out for the resident ghost.

A warm welcome and helpful staff. The food was great - the haddock kedgeree was worth the trip alone.

Beautiful and Atmospheric

Picturesque 15th Century village pub serving beer from wooden barrels and excellent homecooked food prepared to order by hosts Paul Ripley and Sarah Allen. One of the most beautiful and atmospheric pubs in Cornwall.

Port Isaac (3 ¼ miles)

You might well recognise some of Port Isaac’s winding lanes and its harbour; the port has long been a star of both the big and small screens, most notably in ‘Doc Martin’ and ‘Saving Grace’. This is Cornwall at its most quaint with streets so steep and narrow that in many places cars simply don’t fit. For a great meal of fresh fish landed at Port Isaac’s harbour, the Edge Restaurant is a brilliant choice and somehow those panoramic views out to sea from the tables add to the flavour.

Doc Martin Filming in Port Isaac

They are presently filming a new series of Doc Martin in Port Isaac so keep your eyes open for Martin Clunes and the rest of the cast and crew. And when you get home it's great fun to spot the scenes you saw being filmed!

The Longcross Hotel and Gardens (2 ½ miles)

About 3 miles from Port Gaverne the hotel has wonderful views from its terrace and lovely Victorian gardens. We always visit to have lunch or dinner. The food is always great and the staff friendly and helpful.

Trevathan Farm Shop and Cafe

An excellent place to take the children as there is a fun play area and a few animals to see including wallabies and their young. Quality food to buy and eat encourage you to return again and again. Picking your own fruit, including strawberries, gooseberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, is always an attraction in the season
