Latest reviews | Events in Downderry | 10 Places to Stay

Downderry is a picturesque village in the historic county of Cornwall and is home to nearly a hundred and seventy people. This quiet village is flanked by the protection of sea cliffs, and a fabulous beach where the Seaton River flows and which has a mix of sand and shingle, there's stunning views from the shore as far as the Eddyson Light House and even St Georges Island in nearby Looe. Smuggling played it's part in Downderry's past where the illicit contraband of silk, brandy and spices were brought ashore, although today's visitors are more likely to see fishermen unloading their treasures of lobsters and crab. There's an interesting mix of architecture from the attractive church dedicated to St Nicholas built in1905, and pretty white washed cottages and houses lining the roads, there's also a selection B & B's and places to stay for those who wish to linger. Shops are few, but offer everything for that essential purchase, there is a cafe, restaurant with Cornish delights, coffee shop or perhaps the Inn offering a warm welcome with a pleasing sea view will be hard to beat. Walkers can stroll along the coastal paths or rugged and dramatic sea shore which pleases artists, or just a little further to the harbour village of Polperro.
