Surrounding Area

Just beyond the estuary region is Port Isaac, tenuously perched on the cusp. It is a beautiful fishing port that has acheived worldwide renown due to the TV series Doc Martin.

The Camel Estuary is situated on the North Coast of Cornwall, and the Camel River leads further inland. The first town you come to is Wadebridge, and if you are looking for somewhere to stay, there are quality self catering properties to let here.

After Wadebridge is the historic town of Bodmin, a centre of business and administration. The businesses here cater for custom nation and worldwide. One such company is Bromleighs, who's period sockets and switches are extremely sought after. They began life in the town but have recently relocated to Caldicot in South Wales. To see some of their antique light fittings and more take a look at their website here

Continuing South, you will come across the River Fowey, which takes you down to the opposite coast. Dramatically different from the rugged North. This waterside town is full of character and rewarding when sought out, not too far from the Eden Project.

One interesting way to visit the Eden Project is by bike, very appropriate as well considering the eco credentials of the attraction. Carrying on West from Fowey brings you to the village of Pentewan where there is an excellent cycle hire centre that supplys bicycles to ride to Eden and other cycle routes around the area such as the Clay Trails and routes to the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Mevagissey.

The South coast is a warren of coves and rivers feeding through woods and valleys to the more sheltered shores. Cornwall is blessed with so many variations on its geography, making every turn a new experience. There are businesses and enterprises in each twist and turn.

The coast along from Rock though is unique, in both directions. Just a few of the notable spots are Constantine, Porthcothan, Trebarwith, Port wonder the Victorians visited the county so often.

Further West you will find St. Ives, and overlooking the beautiful bay, Hayle has miles of beaches with stunning views. South leads you to The Lizard with the beautiful villages of Coverack on the West and Helford, on the Helford River to the East. Lizard Holiday Cottages have a portfolio of luxury cottages here that are extremely well loved.

Going even further afield, and heading back east, you will find a different world to Cornwall, but with so much still to enjoy. One area to savour is Southend-on-Sea where local residents returned from Cornwall and were inspired to imitate what they found here in their accommodation. The result is The Landings @ No. 83, their Southend accommodation is perfectly placed to explore the region and also close to both hospital and airport.
