Nearest beach

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

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.

Nearest walk

The National Trust owned Cadsonbury Wood lines the banks of the meandering River Lynher and gives a choice of 3 colour coded circular walks. Some have wheelchair and pushchair access and there is also a more adenturous route with a strenuous climb to the Iron Age Fort of Cadstonbury from which there are excellent views of the surrounding countryside.

Nearest town

Rated 2 out of 5 stars

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.

Explore the magnificent Lanhydrock House. Steeped in history and encompassed by flowing grounds, the castle allows visitors a sneak peek into the lives of both the aristocracy and the servants who lived there. Bikes can be hired to explore the ancient woodlands and peaceful riverside paths, too.

So good we went twice :-)

We're NT members so usually visit nearby sites when on holiday. Highlight of this property was the amazing mountain bike trails. We'd brought bikes with us, but did hire mountain bikes for some. Friendly and helpful staff and well marked trails made it the highlight of my 7yo's holiday! We also enjoyed gardens (including Easter egg trail) and house

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the historic Lanhydrock House. First we used the cycle paths which the children (aged 5 and 8) really enjoyed. We then visited the house and gardens and were taken back in time. The children loved following the trails and it kept them entertained. The staff were extremely helpful. A great place to visit.

Well worth a visit

Lanhydrock has something for everyone. The house is really interesting and the friendly guides are knowledgeable about its history. Although I didn't visit the formal gardens on this occasion, I did join an organised estate walk, which was led by rangers who were most informative and, again, very friendly. We had lunch in the restaurant, which was tasty and fairly priced. We would certainly recommend a visit.

Lanhydrock House and Estate is between Bodmin and Lostwithiel The National Trust House provides a wonderful insight into local history and you can also walk the estate, free of charge, by parking in the car park down by the river, close to Respryn. River side footpaths take you through wooded areas which are covered with wild flowers.
After a good walk you can drive towards Lostwithiel, on the back lanes, to the Duchy Nursery for lunch. Not only is it a pleasure to wander among the plants and trees but the shop and restaurant are designed to add ambience to the whole experience. 5 star

The house and grounds are beautiful, quite a sight as you walk down the drive from the car park. The grounds themselves offer lots of different walks, but the one that goes down to the river then back through the woods is my favourite.

Lanhydrock

Magnificent late Victorian country house with expensive servants' quarters, gardens and wooded estate near Bodmin.
Visiting this house entails a drive, but it will provide you with a full day out. The house itself is fascinating, mostly because it has been wonderfully Victorianised in every detail - the kitchens, dairy and pantries are extensive - and the history of house, as well as that of the last generation of Robartes to live at Lanhydrock, gradually unfolds as you move around the house (with, of course, the help of National Trust volunteers). There are various options for lunch (picnic, cafe, restaurants) and the grounds are a joy to wander around afterwards. There are quizzes for children and the option of driving right up to the gate if a member of your party can't manage the walk down the drive.

Well worth a visit for the grounds as well as the house. The kitchens are a real eye opener with all the old utensils. Walk down through the grounds to the River Fowey and the beautiful old Respryn Bridge. If you prefer you can drive down and park beside the bridge. Lovely walks beside the river.

A beautiful sunny day by the sunny

We enjoyed a lovely trip by train to Looe (3 adults and 2 children cost in total approx. £10 return). It's about a 10 minute walk from the station to the town but there is lots of lovely shops, quaint narrow streets and activities for children. We went on a trip out to see on a glass bottom boat, but didn't see anything below the water! Crabbing is very popular and a simple kit cost £3 and kept the children entertained for quite a while. We enjoyed a lovely lunch at The Courtyard Bistro. A quick visit to the beach and an ice cream back to the train completed a great day out.

Very scenic journey

A very pretty little branch line that drops dramatically down through the wooded valley. There is always plenty of bird life and wading fowl on the water as you go by, and the walk into Looe from the station is short and level. Highly recommended, lots of pubs and restaurants in Looe make it a nice winter's day trip, with a pub lunch by a real fire an added bonus! You can get off at some of the little stops on the way and do circular walks from those stations.

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.

This traditional pub with its flagstone floors is situated in the heart of Duloe. It is very much a huge part of the local community and serves a varied menu for both lunch and dinner.

We recently tried the Plough’s answer to Covid-secure dining, the ‘Plough in the park’ and had a wonderful evening!

Not a pub at all !!

It is important to know that this is not a pub at all !
It is a restaurant.
We went in for a drink and felt uneasy when we were told we could only have a drink at the bar, but there were people having dinner, so it felt awkward.

Not what it seemed

From seeing The Plough and reading about it when booking out cottage it appeared to be a nice family pub. On arrival at our cottage this was the nearest eating place so we went along to get dinner. When we arrived at 5.50pm an it serves food from 6pm. We were first i the restaurant but advised it was fully booked. The manager said she would squeeze us in but needed the table back by 7.30pm (plenty of time so saying that just made us feel unwelcome). The menu is extremely limited an the only bar facility is two stools at a bar in the restaurant. During our visit, a couple of were advised of the bar where they were welcomed to buy a drink however later in our visit a family were turned away being told there was "no bar facility". Overallvery pricey with limited choice of food. Not the local friendly pub we expected.
