Our historic home, which has been inhabited by the same family for 500 years, and is considered to be the longest continually inhabited house in the UK It has been home to both the Elephant Fayre in the 1980’s and more recently the Port Eliot Lit Fest.

If you are visiting the house you can spend some time unwinding, taking in the personal touches of a grand yet comfortable family home. The upstairs bedrooms have expansive views down to the River Lynher. A great place to relax, chat to friendly guides or simply do your own thing. Antony is a house full of faces and personalities. Generations of Carews look down from gilded frames as you walk through the rooms. A rich family history tells of English Civil War intrigue and the remarkable scholarship and creativity of an important family.

Great food, great beer, fabulous views over Cawsand Bay, balanced more in favour of visitors than locals over the busy summer period. The whole area of Kingsand and Cawsand is well worth a look. Comprising two joined old fishing villages it is also home to the narrowest house in the UK

JUMP OFF A CLIFF: The Zip at Adrenalin Quarry in South East Cornwall, is the UK’s maddest ever zip wire. Long, high, fast. Twin wires cross the flooded depths of the old quarry, sheer cliffs rise on either side.The Zip is the only place in the UK where you can just turn up and jump. NO NEED TO BOOK! No fuss, no pre-booking, no hours of waiting around – we throw you off cliff within minutes of arrival. We're easy to find, just off the A38 main road. Perched at the top of our cliffs, The Giant Swing hangs 50ft off the ground, 150ft over water. You’re hoisted to 80° then plunged 3-at-a-time over the lake. Just when you think there’s no turning back, you pull out of the dive and experience zero gravity, before doing it all again – backwards.
