Culture Seekers, Garden Sneekers. Readers and Eaters Bon Appetit!
Whether you join us in the Summer months or the quieter Spring and Autumn, you’ll find masses to do.
All within an hours drive of Poltarrow you will find...
St. Michaels Mount
A fairytale castle sitting in the sea, stroll over the causeway at low tide and come back by boat – it’s like being abroad for the day.
St Ives and The Tate
Where culture meets the beach. When you’ve done the swimming and splashing, take a break, visit one of the exhibitions at The Tate, but don’t forget the remarkable Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden.
Honed out of rock sits the open-air theatre, watch Shakespeare or G & S Pirates of Penzance with a backdrop of Caribbean blue sea.
The most southerly place in the UK. Strike out on foot along the point, but make sure you take the camera for the much photographed Kynance Cove. Lunch has to be one of Anne’s Pasties (with the reputation of being the best).
All things nautical can be found in Falmouth. For wannabe Sea Dogs, the maritime museum is a super day out for families. Great boat trip up the Carrick Roads (actually a river) with stop offs at Trelissick Gardens, St Mawes and Truro.
Padstow and Port Isaac
A busy town alongside a working port and a dream destination for foodies. Take a ferry across to Betjamin Country or a drive up the coast to the home of Doc Martin and Fishermans Friends singing on the beach.
Best foot forward for a hike across the cliffs to the ruins of King Arthur’s birthplace. The scenery is spectacular so a pair of binoculars is essential and nowhere beats watching the sunset on the North Coast.
Looe and Polperro
Chocolate box lids and jigsaws come to mind when you visit these pretty places. Looe with its famous Banjo Pier and St Georges Island. Just a few miles down the coast and it’s like taking a step back in time with the traffic free streets of Polperro.
