Set amidst a wooded valley with a tranquil stream running alongside it, Provender House is the quintessential detached country house, the original mill stone now forms the doorstep and the pretty garden is edged by the stream. A short walk through woods to the beach is highly recommended. The pretty village of Veryan, which sits on the edge of the Roseland Peninsula is minutes away and offers a wonderful local pub serving local ales and food, a gallery and a shop. Along the peninsula visitors can find many beaches including Pendower and Carne, considered to be amongst the prettiest in Cornwall. There are also fishing villages with the day’s catch which guests can buy for that special meal or simple barbecue on the beach. The area is renowned for its beauty and dramatic coastline which provides hours of walking with stunning views across the open sea or inland across rolling fields. There is horse riding, golf and cycling within easy reach of the village. Further afield is Fowey, Truro, Padstow, St Ives and Falmouth which can be reached by passenger ferry from nearby St Mawes. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are easily reached and both well worth a visit. Truro has a theatre, cinema, a museum, plentiful local restaurants and excellent shopping. Falmouth has the historic docks and is home to the National Maritime Museum, with many hands-on exhibits for children of all ages. Pleasure cruises around this picturesque bay can be enjoyed, as can kayaking, river trips to Truro or simply meander the narrow streets. There are many cycle trails in the area many of which are linked and are mainly off road. Cycle hire centres are available and it is possible to cross the county by bike, or cycle through the Cornish industrial heritage sights and marvel at the ancient tin mines. The beaches of the peninsula and Cornwall are second to none and provide the ultimate day out for little cost. Rock pooling, crabbing and fishing as well as lazing on the fine white sand are all recommended. Shops and pub ¾ mile.
