Things to do

We are located in a stunning part of Cornwall, off the beaten track, but not too far from the places you want to visit. You can walk to our nearest beach, Gwithian Towans, and many others are within a short drive. The Coast path almost crosses the doorstep, and there are two nature reserves just down the road, famous for the birds which visit.
