Walking from the house you can visit Rame Head is one of the last proper wild coastal places in England – and Dartmoor ponies, deer, along with birds and gulls live freely. From here you also get amazing panoramic views – stretching to Eddystone lighthouse. Frequent sightings from this wild spot of dolphins and seals make it a very special place – and all a short walk from the house along the coastal path. For the more energetic Whitsand Bay is just beyond Rame Head along the South West Coastal Path and offers some of the top surfing in the area. The historic Mount Edgucumbe is along the coastal path in the other direction, with stunning gardens, ice cream parlour and more independent shops.
And you can contrast all of this if you wish with a day of city life, catching the Cawsand Ferry from the beach and enjoy a ride on the water before reaching Plymouth and its fantastic array of restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops. The ferry runs from Easter until the last Sunday in October.
Eating out is easy from No3 with 4 pubs in the village, a brasserie on the beach front. The chef from River Cottage has set up The Canteen at Maker – a must visit for brunch – with a lovely walk up the hill thrown in! Our favourite of the pubs is The Devonport Inn - the chef is French and the food is amazing! Do book to avoid disappointment. The others are all good too - The Halfway House Inn, The Cross Keys Inn, and The Rising Sun and the Bay is our newest and is right on the edge of Cawsand beach.
The Stores - is our new deli on your doorstep and offers fantastic bread and cheese.
The village shop is great for all your essentials.
The Old Bakery - run by Chris & Liz - almost opposite the front door - offers great sourdough bread (even a chocolate sourdough loaf!) and great lunches and snacks.
