Things to do in Torpoint

With stunning scenery, beaches and an abundance of activities on offer, holidays in Torpoint are a dream for families and friends in South East Cornwall. During their stay, visitors can look forward to boat trips, cliff-top walking and places of historical interest including the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park and the area is awash with hidden coves, coast path walks, and terrific beaches including the the four-mile stretch at Whitsand Bay.

Rame Head Circular Walk

Few places are more tranquil and naturally beautiful than the Rame Peninsula. And one of the best ways to take in the spectacular views and scenery is by walking the six mile circular route along the South West Coast path. Highlights of the walk include panoramic views across Whitsand Bay and Plymouth Sound, the Medieval chapel on Rame Head and a stroll through the quaint streets of Cawsand. A lovely walk to do with your dog but they should be kept on a lead at all times due to the numerous cliffs and steep drops along the way.

Torpoint Ferry

Operating a regular daily service since 1971, this passenger ferry service hops between the counties of Devon and Cornwall for just a small charge. Not only a terrific way to take in the views over the local landscape and sea, but also a great way for visitors to enjoy the attractions on the other side of the water, meaning you get to explore a whole lot more. The chain ferry takes cars and pedestrians (pedestrians and bikes travel free of charge) and ferries run around the clock.

Mount Edgcumbe Country Park & Gardens

Perched on a hill on the spectacular Rame Peninsula, Mount Edgcumbe House and Country Park is just a few miles from Plymouth and makes for a wonderful day out with the kids and family. Every inch the grand country estate with landscaped gardens undulating on for 865 beautiful acres, this is the former home of the Earls of Mount Edgcumbe.

The gardens are Grade I listed and access to them is mostly free of charge (apart from the Earl’s Garden), however visitors will need to pay during high season or to visit the house itself. Well worth a visit if you wish to see a magnificent display of spring blooms from its National Camelia Collection.

The park also offers a host of outdoor activities like its alpaca trail and Segway adventure, as well as a fabulous tea room and cafes.
