Cambridge House is a 4 star property situated in the town of Torpoint and has recently been refurbished in a sympathetic (to it's original Victorian origins) yet homely way. Cambridge House is very well situated for access to both Devon and Cornwall. There is surfing at Whitsand Bay 15 mins away and the unspoilt Dartmoor National Park only 30 minutes away. The local area offers great walking and swimming. There are National Trust properties close by and The Eden Project is only 35 minutes away. The local area is often referred to as the 'forgotten corner' of Cornwall, with spectacular coastal views, numerous beaches, healthy walks, character fishing villages, historic places to visit and a wide variety of restaurants. Torpoint could be described as the gateway to Cornwall. It is situated on a peninsula in East Cornwall, across the River Tamar from Plymouth. A ferry connects Cornwall with Devon across the river. The ferry is still free for foot passengers and there is a small charge for cars travelling in the Plymouth direction. Close to the town is a picturesque stretch of water known as St Johnï¾’s Lake. However, this can only be seen at certain times as it is completely tidal and dries out as the tide recedes. We have family, double, twin and single rooms all available in our Victorian house that has been restored by ourselves with modern features. All rooms have digital televisions, Ipod stations, DVD players and tea & coffee making facilities.
