We shall be heading off to Cornwall for our annual 2 week pilgrimage next week. Initially staying in Polperro before heading further south to Mousehole and the Scilly isles

I know the south of the county like a local taxi driver - but am less familiar with the area around Polperro.

I am familiar with Looe, Fowey, Cawsand and Kingsand but that is pretty much it until you get south of St Austell.

So - does anybody have any 'must see' tips for anywhere within an hour or so drive of Polperro?

Thanks in advance

There's also a derelict Engine House from a Tim Mine close to the car park to Cheese Rings, just remembered.

The Rocks themselves, and there's many are a reasonable walk from the car park, prob a good 30 mins.
