Local Features around Polkerris Beach
Away from our beach, there is a lot to see and do in the area.
The world-famous Eden Project is only 5 miles away. If you haven’t been there before, you will be amazed at how a big hole in the ground has been transformed into an amazing ‘experience’ that appeals to just about everyone in some way. If you have been there before, go again to see how much it has changed and expanded. Their ‘Eden Sessions’ Concerts are now a regular feature in the summer and can make a great night out.

Fowey is a historic sea-faring town on the river of the same name, situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It’s a popular yachting location as well as a commercial port. The town itself is packed with high-quality shops, pubs and restaurants and offers a variety of activities, including river trips, extensive walking and golf.

Daphne du Maurier heritage
Daphne du Maurier captured the imagination of millions of people with her books and did much to widen the appeal of Cornwall. She lived just up the road from Polkerris at Menabilly – the inspiration for much of her writing and Rebecca in particular – so you can walk the same walks and appreciate the same scenery. Each year there is a festival dedicated to her work. For further information, visit www.dumaurierfestival.co.uk
