Within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Nanteague at Tregaminion is located between St Keverne and Porthallow Cove amongst farmland and woods. A rich variety of wildlife may be seen including barn owls, buzzards, woodpeckers and countless other birds, badgers and foxes and the resident Muscovy duck and occasional visiting Mallards and Moorhens! We provide binoculars in the property. On clear nights the lack of street lighting allows breathtaking views of the night-sky.

The footpath to Porthallow beach runs along the perimeter of the property through the woods and fields and takes about 10 minutes. In the other direction the path will leads to St Keverne - taking about 25 minutes. The South West Coast Path is a 5-minute walk away (Porthallow is the halfway point of the 630 mile long South West Coast Path).

Cornwall's unique characteristics have evolved from its remote location as the most southwesterly county in Great Britain and being almost surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Famous for its areas of outstanding natural beauty: stunning coastline,wildlife, coastal footpaths, beaches, quaint fishing harbours,wooded valleys and creeks. Its very mild climate seldom getting too hot or cold has allowed a wealth of spectacular gardens to thrive.

Next to the beach is the renowned Five Pilchards Inn - free house serving a good variety of guest ales, lunches and evening meals. Drop in at the Fat Apples Cafe just up the hill for teas, coffees, hot snacks, sandwiches, and ice creams. Nearby is the Porthkerris Dive Centre providing excellent diving on numerous wrecks and the Manacle reef, and basking shark spotting boat trips (in season) .

St Keverne is a traditional Cornish village with a central square, church, two pubs, Greenhouse restaurant, Post Office, convenience store, newsagent, butcher, and Health Centre. Frequent evening concerts by the award winning St Keverne Band. Famous Ox Roast every August.
