St Just to Lands End

St Just to Lands End

Land’s End has enjoyed a revamp in the past few years – the attractions have got better, with a 4D film experience, an interactive journey into the world of King Arthur and the actually very good Shaun the Sheep experience. However there is so much more to see and do around this stunning coast line, things that don’t all require a ticket for entry!

As a West Penwith local I can recommend a few hidden gems to get the most out of your stay down on Britain’s most South-Westerly coast. For a start, stop at the Apple Tree Café for food when visiting Land’s End, just 1 mile away, this fabulous family run café offers wonderful home cooked food, great coffee and runs a live music night throughout the year.

The Lafrowda festival in St. Just is the highlight of the summer calendar, taking place on the third Saturday in July. A great little festival with a friendly atmosphere and everything from music to comedy - all with a good helping of pagan ritual. A stunning little beach, a mile outside of St. Just is nicknamed by the locals – dinosaur egg beach. A gentle walk through the subtropical Cot valley, littered with old tin mines and following a bubbling stream will lead you to Porth Nanven Cove, designated an S.S.S.I area due to the ovoid boulders shaped by the sea 120,000 years ago. Well worth a visit.

If you fancy a bit of a relax, or just want to entertain the family on a rainy day, Boswedden House, right down by Cape Cornwall allows you to privately book out is deliciously warm indoor pool, (heated to 30°C). You must book in advance (01736 788733), £4 for adults, £2 for the under 15’s – with a minimum of £6 to reserve the pool for the hour. A brilliant antidote to a blustery walk around Cape Cornwall.

This part of Cornwall is famed for its prehistoric standing stones. From the Merry Maidens near Penzance, to Men-A-Tol near Madron it’s well worth visiting at least one of these Ancient Sites. If a cream tea or pasty will not suffice after your archaeological ramble then head to one of the wonderful restaurants dotted about. The Gurnard’s Head, on the St.Just to Zennor road and Ben Tunnicliffe at Sennen Cove are the obvious highlights, but the Little Bo Café in Sennen Cove, and Trengwainton Tea Rooms are also worth checking out for home cooked lunch.
