Cornwall’s ‘Serene South’ is all about the landscape, the atmosphere, the scenery and the sea. Okay, you don’t get any sea at Antony House in Torpoint, near Looe (although you do get a picturesque river), but there’s much in the way of landscape, atmosphere and scenery, with plenty of history to boot. Relics from the English Civil War are on show at this 18th century National Trust property that’s set within a lush garden. There’s also kids trails, a National Collection of Daylilies and some beautiful topiary to enjoy. This is the ‘Serene South’ at its best.
