We stay at the ancient market town and port of PENZANCE, capital of the far west of Cornwall! Its also the most westerly major harbour on the English Channel and from here a ferry service operates to the Isles of Scilly. The town overlooks beautiful Mounts Bay which is also the location of St Michael’s Mount that seems to hover over the water. Penzance has something for everyone from its terraces and historic streets, inspiring galleries and high street shops to its inviting promenade, beach and harbour.
ST IVES is set on the north coast of Cornwall, its a picturesque fishing town built on a narrow peninsula fringed with four sandy beaches. Radiating out from the idyllic harbour are a maze of quaint cobbled streets lined with fishermen’s cottages and tightly packed slate roofs. St Ives has a rich artistic heritage, since the 1800’s the town has been a magnet for some of the world’s greatest painters, sculptors and ceramists. Its still the same today with numerous galleries lining it cobbled streets.
LAND’S END is a world famous, legendary Cornish destination that has inspired people since ancient Greek times when it was referred to as ‘Belerion’ – Place of the Sun. Its one of Britain’s best loved landmarks, famous for its beautiful scenery and unique location – the most western point of Cornwall. There are magnificent granite cliffs with cliff top trails, the Long-ships Lighthouse, the famous ‘signpost’ and breathtaking views from the First and Last Point, even the Isles of Scilly may be visible on clear sunny days. There is also a shopping village, restaurant and cafés.
