Boscastle is a sheltered natural inlet, sat within steep cliffs and home to quaint stone-built cottages, shops and tea-rooms. The picturesque harbour is part of the National Trust, with the South West Coast Path running directly through the village. Follow the path yourself or for a little more guidance find a map and accessibility information on the South West Coast Path website.
Located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, St Nectan’s Glen is made up of three beautiful waterfalls, each unique and just as a stone’s throw away from one another. Walk through an ancient woodland with Ivy clad trees and along the banks of the river Trevillet before you reach the first one. Pick up your wellies on arrival and keep your eyes peeled for Cornish piskies and fairies. Find out more about visiting St Nectan’s Glen from Boscastle here.

Wake up to the sound of waves in our Mawgan Porth property, Coastmans Nest. With the beach just 800 metres away, it would be rude not to go from ‘bed to board’ and ride those waves. King Surf is the local surf school offering lessons for all abilities for both groups and individuals. Find out more about King Surf here.
With spectacular sea views, a deep and luxurious spa pool and the cleansing benefits of a cedar sauna, eucalyptus steam room and lavender caldarium, Bedruthan Spa is the ideal place for those wanting to relax and unwind during their stay. The Sensory Spa Garden is inspired by fire, earth, water, air and space, where guests will move through seven stages, each drawing on the sights, sounds, aromas and textures of nature.

From Trevone beach, guests of Casa Vista can enjoy a lovely walk along the South West Coast Path to Stepper Point. Pass the famous sink hole (a large blowhole formed from an old collapsed sea cave) and look out over the Camel Estuary and Daymer Bay. When you reach Stepper Point, don’t forget to grab a selfie in front of the Daymark, an old tower built as a navigation aid for sailors entering the port during daylight.
Explore Cornwall on two wheels as your ride the Camel Trail, an 18-mile disused railway line through Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow. Casa Vista guests can hire bikes from Go Bycyle, who personally deliver bikes to your accommodation, then cycle to Padstow to get on the Camel Trail. Look out for plenty of wildlife along the way and be sure to stop off for a traditional Cornish pasty.

Known as one of Cornwall’s ‘Best kept secrets’ Trevaunace Cove is a family favourite for those visiting St Agnes and its surrounding area.
