Tredarrup is in the perfect location to explore the whole of Cornwall, and Devon too, being just a short drive from the Atlantic Highway. And being only just over half an hour's drive from Cornwall's Newquay Airport, with direct flights to and from many major cities in the UK, Germany, Ireland and Spain, we're also easy to get to.
There's so much to see and do in this beautiful area but here are our personal top 10 places to visit!
1. Visit Tintagel Castle, birthplace of King Arthur, enjoy the breathtaking coastal views, then soak up the atmosphere in the cafe at the foot of the castle whilst enjoying a delicious Cornish cream tea.
3. Enjoy the sandy beach and rockpools at Trebarwith Strand and walk the spectacular (and in places quite steep) coastal path in either direction, before returning to the Port William Inn overlooking the beach for some great food and local ales.
4. Visit the pretty fishing village of Port Isaac, perhaps best known as 'Port Wenn' from ITV's Doc Martin series. Stop for lunch in the excellent Chapel Café or push the boat out in one of Nathan Outlaw's excellent seafood restaurants. Or have a go at kayaking or coasteering at neighbouring Port Gaverne.
7. Try your hand at surfing or bodyboarding at Polzeath - book a lesson or hire the equipment on the beach. Or take a walk around the Rumps to Lundy Bay. Return to one of Polzeath's many restaurants and cafes for sustenance before walking via Daymer Bay to the pretty St. Enodoc's church, hidden in the sand dunes and the final resting place of the poet laureate Sir John Betjeman.
8. Discover the world famous Eden Project and its huge biomes, with the largest rainforest in captivity, then enjoy a taste of the Mediterranean in its on-site restaurant. Then head to nearby Charlestown, one of the filming locations for the BBC's Poldark series, with its picturesque harbour and tall ships.
10. Walk or cycle the Camel Trail from Bodmin to Padstow. Bikes can be hired at various points along the route or even delivered to your cottage. Do it all in one go, or take your time and enjoy the many places of interest along the way such as the excellent Camel Valley Vineyard and Lanhydrock House and Gardens. There are numerous cafes in which to stop and enjoy some Cornish-roasted coffee or clotted cream ice-cream.
