The old fishing village of Portwrinkle, with a harbour (with kayak and dinghy storage by permit) and two small beaches is only 1.5 miles away and is home to the Whitsand Bay Golf Club. This is an extraordinary unspoilt coastal region away from the tourist routes and adjacent to the beautiful Rame Peninsula. The village of Anthony (2 miles), has a popular primary school and is also within the catchment area of two Plymouth grammar schools, with their excellent reputation.

The broad sweep of Whitsand Bay boasts over three miles of golden sands with seasonal RNLI Lifeguards and the crystal clear waters are renowned for bathing, surfing, kayaking and all manner of watersports. Whitsand Bay is officially designated a Marine Conservation Zone noted for the abundance of marine flora and fauna. Tregonhawke and Treninnow Cliff lie within an Area of Great Landscape Value and is also a designated County Wildlife Site.

Nearby the villages of Kingsand and Cawsand (5 miles) both have a welcoming community, are home to the Rame Gig Club and are well equipped with a variety of local shops, pubs and restaurants together with a sailing club and other facilities. The Rame Peninsula is relatively little known, often described as ‘Cornwall’s forgotten corner’, forming part of the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with quiet beaches and outlined by the South West Coastal Path which can be accessed only about 600 metres south of the property. The Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, an 800 acre area of coastal woodland and open hillsides, is possibly one of the most beautiful and varied locations of Cornwall, lies only 7 miles distant.

The town of Saltash has a long waterfront with deep water moorings on the River Tamar and a Waitrose store on its northern outskirts. The city of Plymouth with its historic Barbican and beautiful waterfront and marinas lies within commuting distance. The mainline railway station can be accessed at St. Germans (4 miles) providing an excellent commuting facility (Plymouth – London Paddington 3 hours).
