Nearest pub

Devon and Cornwall Inn (1 mile)

Sit and drink with a resident spectre at this traditional Cornish inn.

Nearest beach

Tregonhawke Beach (300 yards)

Making up part of the three-mile long Whitsand Bay, Tregonhawke Beach is a great spot to sit and while away the hours. Access is via a series of fairly steep steps or along from neighbouring beaches. Just be careful though as although low tide reveals large tracts of sand, at high tide this is all but covered up. Popular for surfing, swimming is only advised in lifeguarded areas.

Unspoilt!

Parking is first come first served on the road at top. Not for the faint hearted or those with small children as the way up and down is very steep but once at the bottom the views are fantastic. Miles of sandy beach, well served by lifeguards within the flagged area. Cafe half way down. Not for those looking for a family beach with facilities but good for beach games, paddling and beachcombing. Go on a clear day when it's less windy.

Perfect for views far out to sea, large sandy beach well worth the climb with a welcoming cafe.

Nearest walk

Cremyll to Portwinkle (2 ¾ miles)

An interesting thirteen mile hike along the Cornish Coastal Path with stunning coastal views taking in Mount Edgecombe Country Park and several pretty Cornish villages with obligatory watering holes! Make sure you plan your journey back as public transport in the area is limited.

Nearest town

Kingsand (1 ¾ miles)

Together with its twin village, Cawsand, Kingsand is a little piece of holiday heaven. Tiny, twisting streets, a string of three beaches separated by rocks (excellent rockpooling to be had here) and calendar-perfect fishermen’s cottages have inspired many a photographer here. If you’re looking for an oasis of peace, you’ve come to the right place.

Also nearby

Finnygook Beach (2 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.

Tregantle Beach (1 ½ miles)

This long stretch of sandy beach can seem endless, around 4 miles in all, stretching out to almost reach Rame Head.

Huge sandy beach which never feels crowded, and has wonderful crowd-free surfing.

Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park (3 miles)

Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park sprawls over 865 acres of the Rame Peninsula. Built in the 16th Century, the house contains 500 years’ worth of history, artefacts and treasures. Explore the house before turning your attention outside and heading out into the grounds and parks, where paths and trails weave their way around picturesque routes. You may even see some of the park’s fallow deer, too.

Wonderful parkland with many walks and beautiful gardens with views of Plymouth.
Staff at Mount Edgcumbe House helpful and informative , interesting house to wander around beautifully maintained.

Downderry Beach (5 ¾ 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 (4 ¾ miles)

Thought to be the oldest continually inhabited abode in the UK, Port Eliot has been home to families for over 1000 years. Fancy joining in? Well at Port Eliot festival you can. Opening their grounds for a fantastic weekend of music, art, fashion, nature, food and more, the owners of Port Eliot welcome you to celebrate, relax and most importantly, have fun.

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.
