From Vine Cottage B&B you can explore all that Cornwall has to offer quite easily by car or train, using bike trails or on foot. A local bike hire shop next to cycle track in Pentewan can usually help with bikes and advice.
By car we are five minutes from the Eden Project and about 15 from the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Lanhydrock House with its wonderful estate and gardens. At Vine Cottage we are within easy reach of lots of other fantastic Cornish gardens and historic houses well worth visiting.
The fishing villages of Mevagissey, Looe and Polperro are waiting to be explored with great restaurants, fresh caught and freshly cooked fish, pubs, shops, coastal paths and wonderful scenery.
The town of Fowey, on the River Foy is a must. Visit Polruan either by passenger ferry from Fowey or the car ferry at Bodinnick or take the passenger ferry to Mevagissey. Visit the Fowey shops, galleries, pubs and retaurants or take a gentle stroll through Fowey to the beach at Readymoney.
From Vine Cottage you can go horse riding, whether you want a lesson or to go out pony trekking, we have stables 15 minutes away by car.
There are golf clubs close by for those who want to spend a day on the green.
You might want to spend time fishing. Rod hire can be arranged through Vine Cottage B&B or the local fishing shop, who can also give advice on rods, permits and the best places to go.
Sea fishing trips are usually available in Mevagissey.
