About this location
The Cornwall region
The End of England - the Penwith peninsula: a wild land, but much inhabited since long, long ago; and very beautiful in its wildness. The equal-top coastal drive in the West Country is along its north coast from Pendeen to Zennor to St Ives (Exmoor�s sea-view road is its rival): gorse and bracken hills, granite-topped and bouldered, above you; below, small drystone-walled fields sprinkled with sheep, granite farmhouses and barns, spectacularly rocky headlands (to walk), and - if you�re lucky and it�s evening - a deep, deep blue sea beyond. There are Stone Age burial quoits, Bronze Age hut circles, two remarkably preserved Iron Age villages.
On the softer southern coast, Mousehole is Cornwall�s prettiest fishing village, Newlyn the West Country�s busiest; built into the cliffs above Porthcurno�s sandy cove is the Minack Theatre - a �must go�, but wrap up warm. Sennen Cove�s huge sandy beach is wonderful for children and sunsets, as well as surfing. The tall chimneys of extinct tin-mining stand strangely romantically above the sea at Botallack. All this and the light bring painters, especially to St Ives. Penzance is a good, sensible town and base with fine prom for strolling. Helicopters or a ship will take you to the Scilly Isles; the mainline railway to and from the world you left behind. Your first glimpse of St Michael�s Mount is one of travelling�s thrills. Go to Land�s End if you must (only). All round the peninsula goes the coast path, of course - one of the very best stretches of it.
Mousehole: perhaps the prettiest Cornish fishing village; horseshoe of granite cottages, shops, good restaurant, caf�s, pub round its harbour. Little sandy harbour beach. Good walks. Newlyn (busy fishing harbour), 1 mile. Penzance, 2; Porthcurno (Minack Theatre), 8; Sennen (good sandy beach, surf school), 10; Land�s End, about 12.
