The Minack Theatre

Travel down to Porthcurno to the open air Minack Theatre, which is 4 miles from Lands End. Regular plays are shown against a breathtaking backdrop, you can check out on their website to see which shows are being played. Laugh, cheer and smile as the team bring back the old school style cinema. After the show, sit back on the grass seating and see the spectacular sea views, and you may even get the chance to spot dolphins swimming across the bay! It’s definitely worth the small journey to the tail of England.

Traditional Cornish Cream Tea

Miss Molly's Tearoom & Antiques

Walk through history during the ever changing 1900s. This collection of rooms, a 10 minute drive from Penventon, are a fabulous find! If you love antiques and vintage style, grasp the chance to walk through the different decades and perhaps you'll find a little treasure to take home! Afterwards, why not enjoy the vintage charm and home-made delights, in Miss Molly's Tea room.


La Belle Antiques

Redruth town, just a short walk from the hotel, offers a huge choice of shops for you to experience. La Belle takes you back to the retro scene with furniture, unique items and gorgeous antiques from 1920-1930s. Treat yourself to something a little different and unique to take home and reminisce of a glamorous, bygone era which is once again becoming fashionable.


Blue Hills

A secluded cove in St Agnes which is known for its tin stream. Beautiful Tin jewellery has been made from the materials which have been captured in the Blue Hills streams. The secluded cove has a beach just a few metres from its stream, which screams for more guest attention. Although the tide times are a must see, before venturing along the coastline!
