Enjoy a wonderful Cornish holiday.

Eden Project Near St Austell, the Eden Project has worldwide recognition for its diverse range of plants. The biomes  represent different climates from around the world. They contain a  fascinating mix of  species that would be impossible to view on any other single site.
Walks around the farm We recommend you enjoy this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for at least part of your stay at Markwell. Individually colour coded  marked walks ranging  from 1600 - 3400 metres (1-2 miles) allow different sections of the farm to be explored.
Wildlife There are fantastic opportunities to view wildlife and the transition between fresh and salt water marshes.  Most of the river boundaries lie within a Site of Special Scientific Interest, where nationally important bird species can be regularly spotted, Kingfishers, Cormorants, Nightjars, Skylarks, Buzzards and Kestrels are among those that can be seen.
Scenic Railways
The Tamar line is one of England's loveliest country branch lines, skirting the edge of the magnificent River Tamar and its estuary before crossing the splendid Calstock viaduct joining Devon and Cornwall.
The Looe Valley line winds its way for just over 8 miles through unspoilt countryside, hugging the steep-sided valley of the East Looe River.
National Trust
Other attractions worth a visit are the National Trust properties of Anthony House and the Tudor mansion of Cotehele, built between 1485-1539. During a trip to the coves of the south Cornish coast, don't forget the Museum of Smuggling at the ever popular fishing village of Polperro.
Those looking for an active break could take advantage of local Golf courses, including St Mellion. There are lots of local fishing opportunities and a challenging  Clay Pigeon Shoot is based two miles away.
