Nearest pub

The Smugglers Inn Seaton (½ mile)

A traditional village pub with relaxing interior and large covered patio for al fresco dining. Children and dogs are welcome and you can even order a takeaway to enjoy in your self-catering cottage.

Nearest beach

Seaton Beach (¾ mile)

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.

July 2011

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

Portwrinkle to Downderry (2 ¾ miles)

A fairly strenuous walk along the coastal path with an option of a low tide meander along Downderry beach. iwalkcornwall give further details about this walk on their website and also lots of others.

Nearest town

Seaton (Cornwall) (½ mile)

More of a hamlet than a village, Seaton has its own beach and a quaint village green. Along the coast is the much busier Looe, a lively resort that straddles a river and edges up the sides of a deep wooded valley. Seaton’s biggest attraction is undoubtedly the Monkey Sanctuary, home to a colony of Woolly monkeys and a group of Capuchin monkeys, all of which are guaranteed to melt the heart.

Dog friendly beach & nature reserve.

Seaton has a really lovely beach where dogs are able to walk easily, right around to neighbouring Downderry. There's a really nice beach café and pub right on the front and a very useful 'village green' area right on onto the beach too for picnics/kids play area, with a car park attached (there are around 12 free parking spaces around the green itself, a real rarity these days too). But the hidden treasure is the nature reserve directly at the back of the car park - you and the dogs can walk two miles to neighbouring Hessenford, through a beautiful wooded pathway, with lovely small lakes and smaller 'otter trails' along the way. A really wonderful surprise which you simply must explore!

A thrilling experience

Gorgeous meals, good wines, very kind staff, friendly atmosphere.
We'd love to come back.

Downderry Beach (¾ mile)

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!

Finnygook Beach (3 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.

July 2011

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.

The Inn on the Shore (¾ mile)

Serving up delicious food seven days a week, The Inn on the Shore provides guests with an extensive menu from breakfast to evening meals. All of their meals are created using local produce and traceable farm meats, and their fish is sourced from West Country ports. Tasty meals are topped off with beautiful views.

Ok for outdoor eating but interior in need of TLC

We booked here on a recommendation and were seated inside in a tiny bare and unwelcoming room. We eventually moved outside which was much better. Service was lovely and food was ok-fine but I would not go back unless I knew the inside had had some work. It seems like a very old inn with lots of nooks and crannies but felt dark and a bit dinghy to be honest.

Port Eliot Festival (3 ½ 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.
