There are many beautiful walks through the surrounding countryside. The villages of Townshend, Godolphin Cross and Leedstown are nearby and further facilities can be found at Goldsithney. The property is centrally positioned for the ancient market town of Helston, Hayle and Penzance all of which have a full range of services including national high street names and supermarkets.
  • The coastline around takes in some of the county's most beautiful beaches, including Praa Sands, Prussia Cove and Loe Bar, the traditional fishing villages of Mousehole, Newlyn and Porthleven, as well as the historic town of Penzance. Penzance railway station provides direct trains to London Paddington and the town is now host to several well regarded restaurants and the newly refurbished Jubilee Pool. Mounts Bay is a favoured destination for kite surfers and a few miles in the opposite direction the historic harbour of Porthleven is now a culinary hotspot with its incredible range of quality restaurants and an annual food festival.
  • The north coast is equally accessible with the town of St Ives a major attraction with its beautiful beaches, selection of high quality restaurants and its great shopping, not to forget the cultural experiences offered by Tate St Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and the Bernard Leech pottery.
