Tregassick is situated towards the end of the Roseland Peninsula, a short distance from the popular villages of Portscatho and St Mawes. Further in the Roseland Peninsula are equally lovely villages of Portloe, Veryan, Tregony and a clutch of smaller hamlets. The area is very popular with walkers, sailing enthusiasts and those with an interest in all things outdoors. The beaches along the coast of the Roseland are unspoilt, clean and remain uncrowded even during the busy summer season. Naturally there are various sea based activities available such as dingy sailing, kayaking, fishing trips and yacht charter.
The historic town of Falmouth is only a short trip away on the foot passenger ferry that operates from St Mawes. Falmouth has lots to offer. Numerous restaurants, cafes and bars, excellent shopping facilities, the National Maritime Museum and even a Rick Stein fish and chip shop. If you prefer to drive, the trip can be shortened by taking the King Harry Ferry.
Beyond Falmouth and the Roseland, other attractions can be found. The Eden Project near St Austell needs no introduction, Lands End, The Tate Gallery at St Ives, a number of fun parks for families with young children and of course acres of rolling countryside to generally explore!
