Nearest town

Saltash (2 ¼ miles)

Wherever you are in Saltash, it’s impossible to miss one of Brunel’s most dramatic pieces of engineering. The Royal Albert railway bridge strides across the Tamar, linking Devon and Cornwall and providing some truly astounding views. The more recent suspension road bridge is an equally imposing landmark. The Tamar Valley stretches away behind Saltash, offering a glorious backdrop to fun water activities like sailing or canoeing.

Stoic British carried on in AWFUL weather!

Wonderful House, Gardens, grounds and shops..AWFUL half term weather, but we braved it all! NB the house has NO electric lights so visibility in the house is limited on dull days!. Mill lovely and the walk down from the house through the gardens and past the chapel to the quay side and then the mill was lovely....a little slippery in places as it a little steep in parts and was SO wet..but we all remained upright! Lovely Cornish ice creams at the Quay and great bread flour can be bought at the mill shop. Hurrah for the VERY helpful and lovely mini bus driver who can ferry any less able bodies around the 3 sites...

Cotehele is a beautiful National Trust property - I recommend walking the wider estate, including the folly behind the property which gives you a bird's eye view for miles! The walk down through the quay to the mill is stunning, and the waterwheel and mill race is currently being renovated, which is an interesting project. You can even buy flour that has been milled on site.

Cotehele

A medieval gem with a magical garden sloping down to the Tamar. Plenty of walks on the Estate. Highly recommended are the scones at the restaurant on Cotehele Quay - just the thing at the end of a stroll along the river.

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.

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.

Finnygook Beach (6 ¼ 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.

Tregonhawke Beach (6 ¾ miles)

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.

Lovely stretch of beach

You can walk for a few miles at low tide...beautiful sandy beach with rocky outcrops every so often...steep climb but a couple of options for tea along the way!

Florrie the dog

Really easy to get to along the coastal path..if you fancy a slightly easier walk head up on to the road once you have gone up the first set of steps and walk along to beach view cafe for the descent onto the beach (check the tide times) but it’s a lovely 3 mile beach and completely unspoilt. Eddies cafe is particularly good after all the walking and before you start the climb back up the steps!!

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.

Canoe Tamar (3 ¾ miles)

Guided canoe trips on the River Tamar. Take in the scenic views of Cotehele up river and paddle passed the village of Calstock and into the wilds of the upper river.

Fantastic!

Canoe Tamar are a really friendly organisation offering a fantastic opportunity to explore the Tamar. We did an early morning canoe (timings depend on the tides, but early morning means no-one else around) from Cotehele Quay, up the Tamar past Calstock and under the viaduct, almost as far as Morwellham Quay. I have never seen so many fish jumping out of the water - literally hundreds! The guide was really helpful and friendly, and anyone could give it a go, as long as they can get in and out of the canoes (the Canadian type, open and fairly stable). I would highly recommend this as a way to see the riverside from a totally different angle.
