Out & About

Discover places to see and things to do whilst in and around Gunnislake, Cornwall to truly enhance your stay come rain or shine!

Buckets and Spades Beach-lovers are spoiled for choice in the nearby South Hams, which is famous for its beautifully diverse, award-winning beaches that stretch from the River Dart to Wembury (near Plymouth). 

Don Your Walking Boots For those with a penchant for adventure the wild and rugged tors of Dartmoor are right on the doorstep, whilst those preferring slightly less exertion will love to enjoy gentle ambles along the meandering river Tamar. 

Adrenalin Junkies Try the purpose built mountain bike tracks which will hurtle you through woodland at top speed, or have a go at archery or tree surfing with a professional course just five minutes from your door. If rock climbing is your thing visit the Climbing Barn where you can also clamber across boulders.  

National Trust Cotehele House and Gardens is five minutes from Little Otterling and makes for a great day out. The Tudor house is festooned with tapestries, textiles, arms and armour to evoke the imaginations of all the family! Saltram House in Plymouth was home to the same family for nearly 300 years, and still displays the original contents providing a fascinating insight to country-estate life.

On the River The river bed is privately owned by a fishing consortium unfortunately, however the nearest place is Endsleigh where you can get individual day passes to fish on their bank. The 14th October is the last day for fishing, recommencing 15th March. Hire canoes for all the family from Cotehele Quay and experience the delight of gliding in a silent boat in some of the most beautiful scenery in the country; past steeply sloping woodland, old quays, mine chimneys, farms and boatyards. 

Culture Vultures Sterts open air theatre, gallery and studio is a short drive away and is a 'must visit' for those who are curious to experience a production under the stars. There is a bar, many events throughout the year, and you might even be lucky enough to visit when the BBQ is sizzling too!
