A gateway to Cornwall

While Torpoint only became a town in the 19th century, the area was mentioned in the Domesday book and people have always inhabited the land along the river.

Nearby points of interest include the National Trust’s 18th century Antony House, which provides interesting historical insight of a family’s involvement in the Civil War, Trematon Castle and Gardens, and Mount Edgecombe House, home to the national collection of camellias. Take the free foot ferry over to Plymouth where you’ll find Drake Circus shopping centre, with over 60 shops, and other attractions, including the National Marine Aquarium.

If it’s the beach you’re after, the beautiful sands of Whitsand Bay are a 15-minute drive away, or there are many scenic walking routes along the coast and in the surrounding countryside.
