The nearby villages of Looe and Polperro are a must for a day trip. Take time to wonder the maze of streets, independent stores and maybe relax on the beach or the harbour. For those shopping days try the historic ocean city of Plymouth. Attractions in the area include, Antony House, Mount Edgecumbe House, karting, the Eden Project and many National Trust properties. For the keen golfers, there is an 18 hole golf course open to non-members very close by.
