Head off on a Torpoint cottage holiday and you’ll likely be torn between visiting Cornwall or Devon. The town of Torpoint on the edge of the Rame peninsula is across the Tamar Estuary from Plymouth from where it can be reached by ferry. Day trips to Plymouth with its fabulous aquarium are free for foot passengers on the chain ferry.
Torpoint is a wonderful base for exploring this peaceful corner of Cornwall. Days out from Torpoint promise spectacular subtropical gardens, stunning stately homes and sprawling woodlands in one of Cornwall’s most unique Areas of Outstanding Beauty, including nearby Antony House and woodland gardens. The grand, castellated Mount Edgumbe House is also nearby set in some 800+ acres of country park. Walking holidays in Torpoint proffer the fascinating coastline along the estuary as well as more than two thousand miles of inland footpaths.
Base yourself in one of our Torpoint holiday cottages for a wonderful break exploring Cornwall.
