St Michaels Mount

A castle that looks like it’s come out of a fairy book.  St Michaels Mount is magical.  You can either walk out at low tide across the cobbled causeway or take a small boat out and spend a day exploring the Mount and it’s gardens.  It’s a very special place.

Happy Kayakers

Get on the water

Hire anything from a small motor boat to a sailing cruiser to a kayak and explore the wonderful estuaries of the rivers around us. You can hire boats of all sizes from many different venues. Some of our favourite days out have been on our kayaks launching from the Helford, Mylor or Loe beach. More recently we’ve been exploring the North Coast, on occasions accompanied by seals and Frenchman’s Creek on the Helford with Koru Kayaking who are perfect hosts with in depth knowledge of the waters around them.

Film evenings and other themed events throughout the year.

If you cannot live without a bit of retail therapy then Truro has a good mix of national and independent shops and you can catch a train or a ferry there from Falmouth and travel the beautiful Fal River on the way or catch a train from Redruth. Truro Cathedral and Truro Museum are both well worth making the journey for.
