Sandy bays, sweeping estuaries, and unspoiled countryside can all be enjoyed on self-catering holidays in Millbrook. The village of Millbrook lies on the Rame Peninsula, at the head of a tidal creek. With Whitsand Bay on one side of the peninsula and the River Tamar estuary on the other, it is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular locations in Southeast Cornwall. Known for its wetlands, where a remarkable variety of rare birds can be spotted, this welcoming community is an excellent base for a break in Southwest England, within a few miles of the city of Plymouth.
