Out and About
The position of this magical retreat is in the perfect spot for exploring the very best that west Cornwall has to offer. The quaint village of St Levan is where your heavenly cottage can be found, and you are right on the door step of the truly enchanting Minack Theatre. This unique open-air theatre is perched high above the sandy shores of Porthcurno and is well worth a visit. You won't find clearer waters anywhere than in this quiet corner of the world. The rugged South West Coast Path leads its way around to the wonderful fishing village of Porthgwarra. There is so much magic to be discovered along this breathtakingly beautiful coastline.
Located away from it all, but only a short journey to some of the best the far west of Cornwall has to offer, you're only 10 minutes by car to the amazing Sennen and Gwenver beaches or 15 minutes to Newlyn harbour for some of the freshest seafood there is. Lamorna cove is right around the corner as well as the oh so sweet Mousehole. You won't know where to explore first!
