Out and About
Picturesque Poldhu is nothing short of a dream and the local area just adds to the unique charm of this wholesome getaway. Set back from the main road between Penzance and Lands' End, you will find Poldhu just past Newlyn in a village named Buryas Bridge. This road can be busy during peak seasons, as it's the gateway to some of Cornwall's best beaches. However, your hideaway is nestled away offering total privacy amongst a tropical Eden. Having easy access to this road also means you can reach these stunning landmarks with total ease.
Within walking distance you'll find Newlyn. Up and coming in so many ways, this traditional fishing town is host to many well-established eateries such as Mackerel Sky. There's also a charming wine, tapas and coffee bar named Lovetts which we highly recommend and if you are looking for Cornwall's best ice cream then you are in luck. Jelbert's is loved by all locals and is the only place to go for a traditional Cornish vanilla ice cream (clotted cream on top, ofcourse!) On a rainy day you can visit Newlyn Film House, a gorgeous boutique cinema that also offers delicious food and refreshing beverages. A stone's throw from Newlyn is post card pretty Mousehole. With quaint cobbled streets, boutique shops and delicious places to eat such as The Old Coastguard, The Rockpool and 2 Four Street, it's well worth a visit. A little further afield you will find Lamorna Cove. Famous for its smuggling history, this picturesque fishing village is the perfect spot to sit and watch the world go by while enjoying a picnic. Just a short distance from Lamorna is Porthcurno with its piercing blue waters, white sandy beach and famous theatre perched on the clifftop (The Minack), you won't want to miss a day trip here. Sennen Cove isn't far and is perfect for those who love surfing and long lazy beach days. St Ives is within easy reach not to mention Penzance high street which is only 6 minutes in the car. You'll find the famous art deco Jubilee Pool along Penzance promenade and The Alverne is an amazing restaurant in town. Book in advance to avoid disappointment. Just past Penzance is quaint Marazion, where you can find the magical island castle of St Michael's Mount and lots of lovely galleries to explore. We told you, this hideaway really is positioned in the perfect spot for exploring the very best of West Cornwall!
