Walkers, we are the mid-way point on the Saints Way, a footpath running
from Padstow on the north coast to Fowey on the south. We can taxi you to
a start point or collect you from the finish.
Food Loverís, no need to spend all your time cooking Cornwall is
full of good places to eat. Most people will know of Rick Steinís
excellent fish restaurants in Padstow, but there are many more including
Trewithen in Lostwithiel and many more great pubs with restaurants in
Bodmin, Lostwithiel and our own village Lanivet.
Fishermen, our small private lake is stocked with carp, roach and
tench. If you prefer sea fishing, boats can take you out from the harbours
of Padstow, Mevagissey or Looe.
Beach Lovers, there is easy access to both north and south coast. A
two minute drive to the top of Helman Tor in the morning will give you a
clear view of both coasts enabling you to decide which coast will enjoy
the best weather.
Local Attraction for Cornwall cottage
Exclusive self catering holiday
accommodation in Cornwall's secret heart.
Nature Lovers, the conservation areas of Breny Common and Red Moor
are both within a short walking distance. Tor View does enjoy a wealth of
bird life. Our bird feeders regularly attract green, chaff and gold
finches, blue, great, marsh and coal tits, nuthatches, woodpeckers, jays,
magpies and dear Mr Squirrel. Buzzards fly overhead and in May and June
the cuckoo frequently rests and calls from the ash tree in the paddock.
Cyclists, the Cornwall Cycle Network passes right outside the gate
and we are only 10 minutes from
the Camel trail, the off road cycle/walking
track between Bodmin and Padstow passing through Wadebridge.
Golfers, Lanhydrock and Lostwithiel
Golf Clubs are only a short
distance away both having very good greens.
Places to visit, Lanhydrock House, Eden Project, Lost Gardens of
Heligan, Camel Valley Vineyard, the picturesque villages of Fowey,
Port Isaac, Looe and Polperro are all a short drive
Garden lovers, Cornwall is full of beautiful gardens. Our mild
almost sub-tropical climate means Spring arrives early. Each of our lets
has a copy of Gardens of Cornwall, published each year they give
comprehensive details of all the gardens open under the Garden Scheme,
some well known and some only open a day or two annually.
Peace and quiet lovers, walk or drive up Helman Tor take a picnic
breakfast, lunch or supper, watch the sun come up or go down from the top,
enjoy the crystal clear view of the stars at night sitting in the hot-tub
or just take pleasure from the peace and quiet of this secret, magical
area-perfect for reviving mind, body and spirit.
