The Area

20121014_130354

Sea Field View is positioned on Whitsand Bay, part of the Rame Peninsula, a four mile sweep of coast that is unspoilt and goes by the name of Cornwall’s forgotten corner.

The chalet is situated a field away from the South West Coastal Path where there are plenty of walks along the coast and inland; course fishing less than a mile away at Treganhawke Farm and golf at the Whitsand Bay Hotel at Portwrinkle, the next bay west. In a field away from the chalet is a grass tennis court and putting green with football and basketball nets, the chalet has tennis rackets and a golf putter + balls.

For your groceries there are shops at Millbrook (the nearest village) and Torpoint.

For a meal out there is the View Restaurant on Military Rd, Whitsand Bay and the Cliff Top Cafe situated on the cliff at Treganhawke. Excellent pubs in the villages of Kingsand and Cawsand all selling good food as well as the Finnygook at Crafthole. Click here for links. At the holiday park on Military Road, a fifteen minute walk away, there is a bar and small indoor swimming pool, open to non residents, plus a small shop selling essentials.

There is plenty of historical interest with smugglers villages and historic fortifications. The bay also had two wreaks for deep sea diving, the Scylla and the James Eagan Layne.

On the road from Torpoint is the National Trust property, Anthony House, which was a location for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. At Cremyll there is Mount Edgecombe House with wonderful views across the Plymouth Sound and heading west is Port Elliot, with grounds that are the used for the Port Elliot festival in July, but which is also open for beautiful walks and cream teas for the rest of the season.

And of course there is the bay itself, with rock pools and low rolling waves it is perfect for a family holiday, it is life guarded through the summer months and has surf schools based at Treganhawke. The bay is a dog friendly beach all year round, which means you don’t have to leave your favourite friend at home anymore.
