Staying in our accommodation in the villages of Point and Devoran is hugely popular because the areas are relatively undiscovered and have an interesting history, built along the deep tidal Creeks of the River Fal which were once used by the ships transporting tin. The villages grew with the tin industry of Cornwall and today you can still see the remnants of this throughout the village.
This tranquil setting is well placed to explore, just 6 miles to Falmouth with it’s maritime museum, sandy beaches and sailing, The Cathedral City of Truro is only 4 miles away or a short trip on the King Harry Ferry and you are on the beautiful Roseland Peninsula, this is a peaceful area perfect for relaxing family holidays.
The Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan are both within 40 minutes drive and the stunning beaches of north Cornwall are easily reached by car in less than 30 minutes.
Closer to home this area of outstanding natural beauty has lots on offer, with some of Cornwall’s most picturesque walking trails. The old Tramway is now a cycle track which runs through the valley and on to Portreath beach, 11 miles away on the north coast.
If sailing is your thing, you could hire a boat or canoe at nearby Mylor and explore the River Fal’s creeks and inlets.
At The Old Quay pub you will find a warm welcome and excellent food. Bikes can be hired from the pub.
