Undiscovered Cornwall

Undiscovered Cornwall

From the historical mining history of St Just, to the surf and beaches of Sennen and Gwenver and stretching out to the rugged Cape Cornwall - the far west of the region really is wild and offers a holiday not like anywhere else

Just a short journey down the winding West Penwith coastline takes you far away from the crowds of St Ives. The scenery of this relatively unexplored, yet very accessible area of Cornwall is breathtaking. The landscapes are littered with relics of the mining industry – derelict engine houses rise up as an iconic reminder of an industry and livelihood of a bygone era. The towering coastline is carved out of the cliffs, corroded from centuries of battling with the fearless elements. Even with the naked eye the sea-scape is almost a carbon print of a map of the country – plain to see that this is where the land ends and the sea begins.

The famous St Ives light still reaches this corner of the county – appealing to the artists, which travelled far and wide to paint the scenery. One of St Ives most prolific painters Patrick Heron lived on the Zennor Road and another famed artist Peter Lanyon would famously glide around this area like a bird, seeking inspiration for his paintings. Barbara Hepworth would walk the coastal path and the translate its boulders and ancient rock formations into her sculptures - there's no denying that the area, stretching from Zennor to Cape Cornwall, is inspiring, but it's also appealing.

You can surf the waves at Sennen Cove, explore the coastal path which winds around the entire area and also stay in some traditional, but luxurious typical Cornish cottages. But the best thing about this area is that you can get out and about and not pass another person, you can park the car, exhaust the kids and breathe in the historical past of an undiscovered corner of this diverse and beautiful region.
