The Area and Things to Do
There are so many wonderful places to visit and things to do around Higher Tresmorn, you will be spoilt for choice. Walkers can roam for miles without needing a car, the coastal path is just across a field where you can take a breathtakingly beautiful and dramatic walk along the cliffs to our nearest beach at Crackington Haven, here you can then relax at either The Cabin Café or The Haven Café, they both serve great food with lots of home-made specialities. The Cabin also hires wetsuits, makes a superb cappuccino or healthy salad lunch as well as the most delicious additive free icecream! It is often open on fine evenings for BBQs and you can BYO wine/beer. Visit the Coombe Barton pub for relaxing drinks on the terrace. Tuck into their scrummy fish and chips while watching the sun set across the beach, there is often music on a Friday night as well!
For surfers there is glorious Crackington Haven, Widemouth to the North or Trebarwith a little further to the South. All are first class destinations for either the beginner or the most advanced! Local amenities in Wainhouse Corner include a petrol station, general stores and a sub-post office providing everything from scrumptious hot pasties, fresh fruit and veg to a varied cellar of reasonably priced wine! Butchers offering locally produced meat can be found in Bude and Camelford and a fish monger at Widemouth and Bude. The Boscastle farm shop is nearby selling home reared meat, veg and random goodies complete with a tea room and lunch area on the edge of the coastal path!
Whilst you may want to forget the car for a week, no doubt guests will want to explore the varied attractions that Cornwall offers most of which are within an hour’s drive.
