The peninsula is remarkably unspoilt and extremely peaceful, and the property is situated in the middle of an extensive network of public footpaths and bridle paths. The rivers Tamar and Tavy are both within walking distance, it’s a dog/walkers paradise!

There are a wide range of recreational opportunities nearby, including golf, tennis, sailing and horse riding. There are many active local community groups including yoga, gardening club, and historical society. Bere Alston, 1.5m away, offers a post office, grocery shops, pub, doctors and primary school.
