This beautiful Cornish river runs through an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is home to award-winning places to stay, restaurants and attractions.

GOLF Set in the magnificent grounds of Killiow Estate just 5 minutes away this well maintained and picturesque 18 hole parkland course presents a challenge to golfers of all standards The tranquil setting offers a chance to relax amonst the mature trees, the natural water features and the indigenous wildlife, which includes buzzards, swallows, woodpeckers, jays, dragonflies and of course rabbits.

WALKING AND CYCLING Drive 6 minutes to a walk around the beautiful National Trust gardens of Trelissick down to the beach for a picnic lunch whilst the more energetic of your party take in some canoeing or dinghy sailing at nearby Loe Beach. Meet up again for a creamy Hot Chocolate in the quirky Loe Beach Cafe. Enjoy a leisurely stroll around the nearby Bissoe nature reserve and popular cycle hire with cycle paths from Devoran to Porteath. BEACHES There are so many beautiful beaches and places to explore. Nearby on the south coast you have many remote beaches on The Roseland and the more popular town beaches of Gyllyngvase and Swanpool Beach. The North coast is just 20 minutes drive to reach the rugged surf beaches of Newquay, Perranporth, Porteath and St Ives or you can explore further west to St Micheal mount, Lands end and Minack Theatre.

Nice modern apartment. We enjoyed our stay here. Only thing I would say is the windows seemed to attract a lot of fruit flies which was unpleasant. Everything else was lovely.

There was nothing lacking. Came equipped with everything. Stunning views. Good local pubs. Only thing that I would have liked was a mirror opposite entrance to aid getting out onto road.
