Out & About

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

Pull! Whether a total beginner or a more advanced shooter, enjoy an afternoon's clay pigeon shooting nearby at Lower Lake. As well as game shooters, skeet and sporting for clay shooters, there are a variety of high and low towers in the valley to enjoy.

Bodmin Moor, one of Cornwall's designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, is a remote, dramatic moorland still grazed by moorland ponies and highland cattle. Highest peaks, Rough Tor and the slightly taller Brown Willy, which reaches a height of 420 metres (1,377 ft) above sea level. More than a hundred Bronze Age hut circles have been excavated on the slopes of Rough Tor, along with a Neolithic Tor Enclosure and the foundations of a Medieval chapel. The wild and windswept 'high moor' is also home to Cornwall's highest church, located in the village of St Breward, starting point of the Camel Trail.

Head to the Coast A visit to the village of Boscastle and Tintagel is sure to cast a spell over you; from dramatic coastal walks to quaint bookshops and tea rooms, there is magic to be found in these pretty vilages. Beautiful Boscastle has also been used as a filming location for Doc Martin and Saving Grace, and has even starred in its very on television series A Seaside Parish. In October, don't miss the Boscastle Food festival. Pick up a copy of the local Parish paper The Boscastle Blowhole to get abreast of all the local goings-on!

Antiques For those inspired by the cottage's interiors or simply with a penchant for antiquities, the nearby town of Callington holds fortnightly auctions with viewing available on Wednesdays followed by the sale on alternate Thursday mornings.

National Trust Cotehele House nearby 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 throughout the centuries.

On the Water 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. For those with a thirst for more high octane activities, nearby Siblyback Lake is the best place in Cornwall for wakeboarding, windsurfing, sailing and more.

Culture Vultures Sterts open air theatre 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!
