About the location


Port Isaac 7.1 miles; Bodmin 8 miles; Newquay 22.1 miles.

Nestled in the heavily wooded River Camel Valley is the pretty village of St Tudy in North Cornwall. Resting just over seven miles from the quaint fishing village of Port Isaac, and just a few miles from Bodmin Moor, St Tudy is a fantastic base for touring both the coast and countryside. St Tudy is home to a well-stocked village shop, a Post Office and a pub, St Tudy Inn, and lies just two miles from the start of the popular Camel Trail, a 17-mile cycle path following the river from Bodmin Moor down to Padstow. Surrounding attractions to visit include Tintagel Castle in the pretty coastal village of Tintagel, Pinetum Park and Pine Lodge Gardens, Lanhydrock House and Gardens, and Pencarrow House and Gardens. Visit the charming village of Port Isaac and walk the winding, narrow streets and soak up the quaint harbour scenery, or venture further south to the surfing haven of Newquay, or quieter shores of Polzeath Beach.
