Its only a 5 minute drive to the seaside and fishing town of Looe with its harbour, shops, pubs and many small restaurants that serve excellent evening meals.
There's a good local taxi service if you want to leave the car at home and go out for the evening in Looe or Polperro.
Boat trips and fishing trips can be arranged at the quayside.
There are riverside and woodland walks at Kilminorth Woods upriver from the town.
Looe has an 18 hole golf course. There's an indoor swimming pool within walking distance of Hendersick Farm.
Talland Bay, renowned for it's scenery and its history of smuggling is just down the lane from Hendersick Farm. A licenced cafe in a field overlooking the bay is a great place to relax and take in the view.
The neighbouring village of Polperro 3 miles away with its tiny fishing harbour and picturesque cottages is well worth a visit.
