The immediate area is surrounded by many miles of wonderful coast and countryside, much of which is in the ownership of the National Trust. Once away from the immediate local lanes, there are good road connections to the motorway system via the A38/A30. Railway connections (London Paddington) can be made at a number of local stations (Par, Liskeard & Lostwithiel).
