The sea is a mere 3 miles away to the North and 10 miles to the South when staying at Wheal Rose, and there are beautiful river estuaries to explore. So for those of you who love to get out on to the water there are plenty of opportunities.
The Rivers Fal and Penryn link Truro and Falmouth. Enterprise Boats link the two towns with a ferry bus service, allowing stops along the way and your choice of schedule. Check them out at www.enterprise-boats.co.uk.
