The Local Area
Carpenter's Tinney is situated on the border of Devon and Cornwall in lovely countryside just 8 miles from the north coast.
The north coast of Devon and Cornwall is a stunning location with wide sandy beaches popular with families and surfers, rugged cliffs and miles of scenic coastal walks.
The town of Bude, 8 miles away, offers shopping, leisure facilities, restaurants and pubs, and a fortnightly farmers' market.
South of Bude opens out the expanse of Widemouth Bay, and beyond are the villages of Crackington Haven and Boscastle built into steep valleys leading down to the sea. A little further along the coast lies Clovelly, a very popular tourist attraction with its (car-free) steep cobbled streets and donkeys.
Further west is the mysterious Tintagel Castle, with its legends of Arthurian adventures and the wide expanses of Polzeath beach, popular with families and surfers.
A short drive from Carpenter's Tinney is the Royal Horticultural Society gardens at Rosemoor, a must for all plant lovers and gardeners. Also nearby is the Tamar Otter and Wildlife Centre which is a great day out for all the family.
Lanhydrock House (National Trust) is within easy reach and there are many other National Trust houses and gardens in the vicinity to be explored.
If you like sport there are many opportunities in and around the area. Have a round of golf at Holsworthy, Bude or Launceston golf courses. Walk the costal path or venture on to Dartmoor.
You can cycle the West Country Way that runs through Holsworthy and links up to the Tarka Trail. There is even horse riding for all in Bude.
