Millbrook is tucked away on the Rame Peninsula, affectionately known as ‘Cornwall’s forgotten corner’. Situated in an AONB, the village is situated at the head of the tidal creek, so it’s a perfect spot for birdwatching. Millbrook is also close to a well-known stately home, Antony. Whitsand Bay is a great place to surf and wreck dive and the village is close enough to travel to Plymouth in under an hour by car ferry for shopping and culture.
Why visit Millbrook?
Millbrook is perfect for visitors to Cornwall looking for a lesser-known spot and to get off the beaten track to experience life in the West Country. The Rame Peninsula is a gorgeous part of the county with some alluring visitor attractions. It’s close to Plymouth but attractively coastal and rural to offer a charming seaside escape for all the family.
