Just five minutes away by car. Zip wires, karting, aqua park, axe throwing (!?). So when the peace and quiet of Jopes is getting to you this is your place!
Zip wire at Eden
This is England's longest zip wire - plus five other activities for thrill seekers. Tip: this is run by a separate company from Eden and has its own entrance.
SE Cornwall is hilly - very hilly! But the ride down to the beach is fairly gentle. We cycle ourselves and can recommend other routes if you are interested. Further afield there is the Camel Trail and the Pentewan Valley Trail (both about 30 mins by car). You can hire bikes on both trails.
Great Trethew Manor is five mins away by car and offers trekking for adults and children. Website here
The two closest golf courses are Looe and Whitesand Bay at Portwrinkle. Whitesand Bay has amazing sea views. Or you could try your hand at the Jack Nicklaus designed course at St Mellion, about 20 mins away.
Bake Lakes is only five mins away (or 30 mins walk) and offers course and specimen fishing. They also have a cafe. If you prefer to do your fishing at sea there are several boats that offer fishing trips from Looe harbour.
If you need to relax after all that activity! One of our guests had a great time at the China Fleet Spa so we have included it here. About 20 mins drive.
You can hire kayaks from various places. Talland Bay is a lovely beach and the cafe offers kayak hire.
