"Downderry! Downderry! The very name of this small Cornish seaside village has a rythmic, lyrical quality... Downderry down, Downderry down... it rings of lymeric, folk song and rhyme. Snug between the bay of Whitsand and the promontory of Looe, Downderry with its spouse Seaton, bathes in the constant ebb and flow of the English Channel. Their gentle cliffs roll and tumble towards the sea."Sir John BetjemanOverviewDownderry is a coastal village in southeast Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is situated 18 miles (29 km) west of Plymouth and one mile east of Seaton.Downderry has a long beach of light shingle. There is road access down to the beach via a slipway although this is blocked by a locked gate, pedestrian access is still possible. Dogs are allowed on the beach. The east beach has a reputation as a nudist beach.The village and beach offer views of Looe Island to the west and Rame Head to the east and on clear days sight of the Eddystone Lighthouse 8 miles (13 km) to the south.The village has a Church of England church, a Methodist chapel, a shop with a Post Office, a pub, a restaurant, a coffee shop and a primary school.The Church of St Nicolas Downderry began as a mission church to service the growing population of the village.
