Here are some of our favourite places to see in Cornwall…

More stunning Gardens…



A 25 acre that is 180 years old. Trebah is a subtropical garden that descends to its own beach on the beautiful Helford River. You can experience this garden all year round, famed for its colourful displays of 100-year-old Rhododendrons, Magnolias and Camellias.
There is also a large visitor centre and cafe.

Looking for a day out?


Porthcurno to Cape Cornwall

Porthcurno village is the perfect place to start your day, a place of National interest due to it historically being the centre of world telecommunication in the 19th century. The telegraph museum also resides here.

Porthcurno is the home to the beautiful Minack Theatre, which is an open-air theatre built into the cliffs, where shows run throughout Summer. Just the view alone is enough to bring people from all over the country, and if you’re lucky, you might get to spot basking sharks, fin whales, humpback whales and dolphins.

Leaving Porthcurnow, head to Lands End where the spectacular views continue. Lands End is steeped in history, myths and legends and filled with plenty of activities for children.

After Lands End, head to Sennon, one of Cornwall’s best surfing beaches.

Finally, head to Cape Cornwall, with its captivating and stunning scenery. A photographers paradise.

Penventon to Porthcurno: 50-minute drive.



Picturesque Walks…
