Loe Beach Watersports and Boat Hire50.202437503175986 -5.049022436141968 https://www.littlegoonreeve.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/photo__2_.jpg
Tucked away in idyllic Feock is family and dog friendly Low Beach where you can learn to sail, hire a kayak to go exploring, (we like to paddle them to the pub!) or a windsurfer or motor boat. We recommend this water sports centre and boat hire centre as a perfect spot to cast off for fun on the water. Pack a picnic, or chill on the beach and watch nautical life go by.
The Bike Chain, Bissoe Bike Trail50.232246 -5.128469 https://www.littlegoonreeve.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/bikechainbissoebikehire.jpg
The Bike Chain at Bissoe is perfectly situated to give you access to miles and miles of safe, fun off roading which can be as challenging or sedate as you wish. Hire bikes for all the family here or bring your own. There are some wonderful, clearly signposted cycling routes taking you through the beautiful Cornish countryside, and its even possible to cycle to the beach at Portreath for a cooling dip in the sea!
Mylor Sailing School50.180966 -5.053711 https://www.littlegoonreeve.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/mylorsailingschool.jpg
RYA accredited sailing courses, Swallows and Amazons kids club, family sailing or relaxing skippered excursions. There is so much to enjoy for those of a nautical persuasion that you could easily spend all your time right here, investigating the inlets and secluded beaches, creeks and crannies of the famous and historical Carrick Roads, or just spotting your perfect waterside property! The very friendly and competent team of instructors here will make your sailing experience a fun and magical one.
The Olive Grove50.194869 -5.122826 https://www.littlegoonreeve.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/theolivegrove.jpg
Within walking distance of our farm you'll find The Olive Grove, a fully licensed Bistro, Deli and farm shop. Pretty much everything here is home-cooked, local and organic where possible. Find a shady spot outside amidst the olive trees to enjoy a leisurely lunch, high tea or evening meal.
Miss Pea Pods - Kitchen Cafe50.167759 -5.097034 https://www.littlegoonreeve.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/misspeapods.jpg
This quirky kitchen cafe and bar situated at Jubilee Wharf is a short car journey or slightly longer bike ride if you're feeling sprightly. From the deck you can watch the sea-life drift by, sip on a Fairtrade coffee or enjoy a chilled glass of cider (organic of course!) The food is delish and sustainable and there are live bands in the evenings so not suprising that Miss Peapod's made it onto the Guardians' South Cornwall Best Budget Eats top 10.
Gylly Beach Cafe50.145446 -5.068002 https://www.littlegoonreeve.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/gyllybeach.jpg
With a host of awards under its very stylish belt the Gylly Beach cafe, bar and restaurant on the Cliff Road is an ideal spot to dine; day or evening. There's great live music come sundown and the view across the bay to the Lizard peninsular is nothing short of spectacular. Perfect for those who enjoy an urban feel with a Cornish twist!
The Pandora Inn50.19542867903168 -5.064308423287635 https://www.littlegoonreeve.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/pandorainn.jpg
Our infamous local! To say were fond of this historic 13th Century Inn is an understatement. In fact we think some of the regulars might remember when it first opened! Set in the stunning surroundings of Restronguet Creek, in Cornwall, the Pandora Inn offers great fodder, real ales and a unique setting. you'll find it a short drive from our farm, but there are also more unorthodox ways of visiting. So far we've Kayaked, sailed and ridden there, and we've even visited in a Cornish Gig. From the flagstoned floors to the traditionally thatched roof we give this pub a big Cornish thumbs up.
The Minack Theatre50.040835 -5.651076 https://www.littlegoonreeve.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/theminacktheatre.jpg
The Minack Theatre is nothing short of spectacular. Looking every inch as if carved from the Cornish cliff by the Romans it was however a labour of love some eighty years ago for it's creator Rowena Cade who created this amazing theatrical spectacle set against the ever changing backdrop of the Atlantic Sea. The first play performed here was fittingly The Tempest, and whilst it is hard to imagine a better setting to enjoy Shakespeare there is plenty of variety on offer. Plus the bonus of being situated above Porthcurno, arguably one of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall, makes it pretty hard to beat.
