If you're short on time, we recommend a quick trip to Roche Rock and Hermitage the local well kept secret just 2 miles from the hotel. This ruined 15th-century hermitage is steeped in myth and mystery. Park for free and take a short moorland walk around the rock or if you're feeling energetic, climb the ladders to the ancient chapel and take in the panoramic views across China Clay Country!
No trip to the area is complete without visiting the Eden Project, Cornwall's "Eight Wonder of the World" where you’ll get close up to the world's largest indoor rainforest, take in the sights and smells of the Mediterranean Biome, and explore the vast gardens. There is a full programme of family events throughout the year and music festivals in the summer.
Don't Go Home Without
Taking a trip to The Lost Gardens of Heligan and discovering the 200 acres of garden history, mystery and romance. In 1914 the men of Heligan went off to the War in Europe and the gardens were lost in time until being re-discovered in the 1990's then and lovingly restored to their former glory and one of the finest gardens in England.
Poldark fans will be delighted to discover there are numerous film locations between Bodmin and West Penwith. Bodmin Jail, Holywell Bay and Charlestown Harbour are all very close by. For the diehard fans make sure to ask us for directions for some of the more hidden locations which are well worth a visit.
