In the village itself you can browse the antique and gift shops, the Craft Centre, the Witch's Museum, or eat out in one of the restaurants or three Pubs.

Much of the harbour, the coastline and the Valency Valley are managed by the National Trust, and are designated an 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty?. It is only an hour's drive from the M5 at Exeter, and is perfectly positioned for walking along the South West Coast Path and visiting the picturesque villages of the area including Tintagel and its castle ruins.

Alternatively, try hiking across Bodmin Moor, cycling the Camel Trail, horse riding, golf, rock climbing or sailing.

This is an ideal base from which to explore the whole of Cornwall, Dartmoor, and North Devon. Attractions to visit include: The Eden Project; Lanhydrock House; St Ives with the Tate Gallery (Tate St Ives) and numerous Cornish gardens to name just a few. At any time of the year this is an ideal place for a holiday.

In springtime you can enjoy the snowdrops, primroses, and bluebells in the woodlands and hedgerows; in the summer, laze on the beach and during the winter marvel at the magnificent sight of the Atlantic waves breaking whilst enjoying an invigorating walk before a drink or meal in front of the log fire, in one of the friendly local inns.
