A mile from Millbrook towards Cremyll (1 mile) and Mount Edgcumbe, a mile from the Coast Path and on the edge of Millbrook Lake, a charming cottage (end-but-one in a row of four), the whole ground floor of which has been made completely private and self-contained for your use (owner occasionally resides in upper part of house, separate entrance). Spacious and comfortable inside, with own prettily planted slate terrace (table/chairs, barbecue) at the front from which to enjoy the lovely River Tamar views and evening sun.

South Cornwall: between the river Tamar and river Fowey and south of Bodmin Moor is inland Cornwall at its most gentle and lovely: deep, wooded valleys (including on Bodmin Moor’s southern edge) between sheep and cattle-grazed fields; tidal creeks (exceptionally pretty Lerryn is on one of them). Most of it is delightfully by-passed by main roads.

On the coast are long sandy beaches (Whitsand Bay), high headlands and sandy coves at the foot of cliffs (Lantic Bay) to walk to, two of Cornwall’s loveliest cove villages (Kingsand, Cawsand) and a classic fishing village (Polperro). From Looe - river-mouth fishing village/resort with sandy beach - you can fish and sail. Round here Daphne du Maurier lived and wrote. A branch line railway chugs pleasantly from Liskeard to Looe. Just to the west is Cornwall's star modern attraction, The Eden Project, worth a once-a-year visit into the future indefinite, and Lanhydrock, a very lovely National Trust house and garden. Beyond them begins the extraordinary and spectacular china clay country, good for a visit (excellent museum). You should go to Cotehele beside the Tamar, too, and Calstock for the 'messing about in boats' activity.

Millbrook: old village (pub, shops, children's park, lake) at the head of a creek off the River Tamar (boating/birdwatching), a mile from the sea/beaches at Whitsand Bay and Kingsand. Cremyll (good pub) and fine houses at Mount Edgcumbe (Grade I listed gardens) and Antony (Nat. Trust), 3 miles. From Cremyll, pedestrian ferry to Plymouth (theatre, shops, entertainments), or 7 miles by car ferry.

No children due to waterside location, except pre-crawling babies
