A historic pilchard fishing and smugglers’ cove, Portwrinkle is hunkered on the southwest edge of the Rame Peninsula. These days its pilchard cellars have been transformed into characterful cottages that huddle around Finnygook cove – named after ‘Finny’ the smuggler, whose ghost is said to haunt the cliffs after he betrayed his friends to save himself from the authorities. Haunted or not, this pretty coastal village is an idyllic base from which to experience this less-trammelled corner of Cornwall: Strike out along the South West Coast Path to Rame Head, explore the historical landscapes of Mount Edgcumbe Country Park and the Anthony Estate, or cast away on a Famous Five adventure from a secluded cove.
