Situated next to the church, here you'll find a traditional rural village pub with outside seating. The pub recently welcomed new landlords and is open evenings and weekends.
With a gorgeous wooded valley on one side and wide, rolling ocean on the other, Seaton Beach at the foot of the Hessenford valley is a unspoiled gem. The River Seaton runs across the sand and pebble beach, making a great play area for children and those wanting to paddle through shallower water. At low tide, numerous rock pools are revealed at either end of the beach and a large foreshore is revealed, idyllic walking territory for you and your dog. A cafe, shop and toilets are available and there is disabled access.
Popular family beach with a cafe and a car park. A stream running through the beach gave our kids hours of fun building dams.
Just outside the village of Rilla Mill you will find a footpath by the river to Stara Bridge. Take the crossing over the Medieval stone bridge into ancient woodland and follow the river looping back through the trees. Take a left turn up the hill to the next footpath and take the next right back to Rilla Mill.
Callington is nowadays a small market town, although it once was the gateway to one of the richest copper mining districts in the world. Behind the town is the 1000ft high Kit Hill, crowned by an 80ft stack built in 1858 for the winding and stamping engine of the Kit Hill Consols mine.
A curious little town with a mixture of shops. The arrival of Tesco's might have killed off the centre a little, but there's certainly no absence of hairdressers! The Trewartha's hardware store is an experience to say the least - prepare to step back in time thirty years! There is little remarkable and would choose to visit Launceston wherever possible.
They have been providing quality teaching, training and trekking here for over 40 years. Rides and lessons available for all ages and abilities, with rides over Bodmin Moor, an area of outstanding natural beauty, excellent experienced on horseback.
Superb riding in the Cornish countryside
We took our horses to Lower Tokenbury to ride their woodland trail, the setting and facilities are fantastic, I cannot recommend them enough.
A collection of three woods, Broad, Colquite and Trevovis. Premissive and public paths run through the woodland which is run by community groups and volunteers. You'll find wildlife, ancient forest, mature oaks and river with cascading pools.
Beautiful and peaceful woodland with good paths.
Enjoy a stroll by a river to a wonderful waterfall and perhaps picnic whilst enjoying tranquility and birdsong in this lovely woodland. Maybe you'll see local wildlife including woodpeckers, buzzards and if you're lucky you might hear the cuckoo! Deer frequent this area and perhaps you'll be afforded a glimpse of Mr. Fox. Please remember to take all your rubbish home with you.
A medieval house in amazing condition, with fabulous collections of armour, textiles and furniture from the period. The estate is open daily from dawn to dusk throughout the year, dogs are welcome in the grounds and there's miles of woodland paths and countryside to explore.
This is one of the most beautiful houses in UK. Well worth a visit.
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.
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.
A traditional pub set in the picturesque hamlet of Treburley. Choose from a variety of menus including A la Carte, taster, pub classics and bar snacks. A kids menu is also available with food sourced from local producers.
Since February 2014, The Springer Spaniel has been owned and run by one of the winners of Masterchef 2012 - Anton Piotrowski. The pub still has the same dog-friendly ambience but the food is even better!
Good Locally Sourced Food
Good locally sourced food with friendly staff. Open fires in winter.
The Springer Spaniel
Traditional pub in a village location - really easy to get to (just off A30). Have only had lunch here but great menu choice and friendly staff. Oh and (as you would expect) they love dogs so long as there is an owner on the end of a lead!
Posh nosh in a rural pub
Good locally sourced meat and fish, seasonal vegetables and puddings to savour - The Springer Spaniel is great for lunch or dinner. A little expensive but good value - the portions are on the large side!
This 15th Century Inn on the Tamar river is on the Tamar Trail. Stop off for some traditional home cooking and real ale.
Traditional pub food in a lovely setting
Good traditional pub food, open fires, one side carpeted , the other with old slate floors so it's OK to have muddy boots and dogs. On the Devon side of the Tamar just next to the ancient Horsebridge.
A great traditional pub with a lovely friendly atmosphere and good food. Try the lamb shank if they've got it - it's delicious!
Very traditional but welcoming pub - good home cooked food and a nice open fire. Very atomospheric and popular with the locals - a beautiful setting that would be hard to beat. You must try the beer from the pub's own micro-brewery if you visit.
