This area of Cornwall is steeped in history and natural beauty. To the south, The Lizard Peninsula is defined by its small fishing villages, open countryside and the timeless Helford, one of Cornwall’s best sailing rivers. To the west, Mount’s Bay is dominated by St Michael’s Mount before leading around Penzance to the fishing port of Newlyn and pretty Mousehole. Beyond, the far west juts defiantly into the Atlantic; this area of Cornwall has for generations attracted and inspired many celebrated artists and writers. To the north, and just eight miles away, one of Cornwall’s finest expanses of sand, Gwithian, awaits with endless galleries and eateries to explore in nearby St Ives and Carbis Bay.
Penzance, 10 miles away, provides a mainline railway line to London Paddington and a ferry service to the stunningly beautiful Isles of Scilly. Cornwall Airport (near Mawgan Porth) is about 36 miles away and provides regular flights to London and many other UK and European destinations.
