A day at Chatham

Rise early and after breakfast, make the short one mile walk to the beautiful Glendurgan Garden, a large exotic garden, with lots of fascinating nooks and crannies to explore. Or stay closer to home and enjoy the large shared garden. Sunny, south-facing beach, Durgan, is just a few minutes from the house.

Further afield, head to Falmouth, just 10 miles away from the cottage. This pretty port town has a number of local attractions including Pendennis Castle, Trebah and Falmouth Art Gallery.
