Lesquite is ideally situated to visit the many and diverse sights in Cornwall ranging from the pre-historic right through to the modern day. Stone circles, Cornish crosses on the one hand and lovely gardens and stately homes on the other. The wonderful beach at Lantic Bay (pictured above) and the lovely hidden cove at Lansallos are both just a 3 mile drive from Lesquite. The Cornwall Coastal Path meanders along the magnificent coastline once the scene of smuggling, where you can soak up the spectacular scenery and imagine the wreckers at work.
Fowey is a delightful place to visit for a day out with much to amuse the family including pleasure boat trips from the Town Quay steps, walks along the esplanade with lovely views over the river and ferry trips to Mevagissey and Lerryn. The town has an excellent selection of independent shops and art galleries and a wide choice of places to eat, from fish and chips to gourmet restaurants.
Fowey has many literary links with one of its most famous residents being Daphne du Maurier. Another famous resident, the great writer and important man of literature, Sir Arthur Quiller-Couch, settled in Fowey in 1891. Kenneth Grahame, author of Wind in the Willows, also had a strong attachment to town having spent many holidays in Fowey.
