The charming working fishing ports of Mevagissey and Fowey are not far away and both destinations are excellent choices for day trips, as is the picturesque old port of Charlestown with its lovely little beach, quirky shops and superb eateries. Charlestown, no longer a working port, is now a popular filming location.
There are many miles of paths and trails to explore, that welcome both cyclists and walkers, connecting the town with both the coast and outlying countryside. Extensions and improvements to existing trails and paths are planned for the very near future. The South West Coast Path, which runs the length of the Cornish coast, is also easily accessible.
