Trencrom Hill is located on the outskirts of St Ives and is one of our favourite places to go. A little walk from the car park up to the top and you get stunning views from coast to coast. St Ives Bay over to Mounts Bay at Penzance.
Trencrom was an Iron Age hill fort which was previously a single walled Neolithic enclosure. Cairns or hut circles can still be found.
Legend has it that the hill was also a favourite place of giants. The giants of the hill would gather for a game of ‘bob-buttons’. St Michael’s Mount served as the ‘bob’ where giant granite masses served as ‘buttons’ and the hill was the ‘mit’, the spot where the giants threw from to try to hit the buttons.
Discover this special place for yourselves and stay at the footstep of the hill at one of our Trencrom cottages.
