Golf Courses

There are at least five golf courses within easy reach of Porchester House. Details of Cornish golf courses can be found at:
Golf in Cornwall


There are all types of fishing available. Sea fishing is available at most fishing villages. Course fishing is also available in season as long as the appropriate license is obtained, or try Meadowside Fisheries between Wadebridge and St. Columb Major.


There are many interesting walks in the area, not least the walk from Wadebridge to Padstow along the old railway line known as the Camel Trail. It is also possible to hire bicycles at either end and ride along the route.

Of the many coastal walks Bedruthan Steps is a favourite. However there are fabulous views whichever walk you choose. Your hosts will be pleased to advise.


There are many interesting gardens to visit in Cornwall. Many are owned by either the National Trust or English Heritage. However many of the independant gardens are worth visiting, especially the gardens at Heligan - as featured in the television program "The Lost Gardens of Heligan".


For the sailing enthusiast a visit to Rock is recommended.


Windsurfing is very popular in the Camel Estuary. Head for Daymer Bay.


Polzeath is famous for both board and body surfing.


There is the Bodmin & Wenford steam railway at General Station, Bodmin.

Pony Trekking

There are some pony trekking establishments in the area.


St Ednoc church was reclaimed from the sand dunes that buried it and is where John Betjeman is buried.


There are at least 7 good old country and coastal pubs all within a 10 minute drive. You could also head up to Bodmin Moor and visit Jamaica Inn.
