Set amidst rolling meadows and wooded valleys, this area is an excellent spot for walkers and wildlife enthusiasts. The south coast is nearby and offers lovely sandy beaches and coastal walks whilst the local fishing towns of Looe and Polperro are both within a 20 minute drive. The cathedral city of Truro is just a short distance away, as are numerous impressive country houses and gardens. The world famous Eden Project is also within easy reach, ensuring that all visitors to this lovely region have something to see and do.More
