The Cornwall region

Carnaquidden Barn is situated on the edge of West Penwith, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Just three hundred yards down the lane is Chysauster Ancient Village, an Iron Age settlement and English Heritage site over two thousand years old.

The barn is ideally situated for walking and exploring the surrounding ancient moorland via bridleways and countryside paths. With both St Ives and Penzance just a short drive away, the barn is a great base for all that West Cornwall has to offer, from shopping to surfing. Attractions include the Minack Theatre, golf courses, horse-riding, and some of the best quality beaches in the country.


Places to go / things to do….

Carnaquidden Barn is perfectly placed for you to explore the West Penwith peninsula. Both the North and South coasts are a ten minute drive away, and the towns of Penzance (5 miles) and St Ives (7 miles) are within easy reach. All around is stunning scenery, packed with prehistoric remains, providing some fabulous walking.

Why not……

Pack up a picnic (and a rug!) and head off to an open-air performance at the renowned Minack Theatre.

Go riding. Just up the lane is Tremenheere Riding Stables (tremenheereridingstables) who offer small group lessons for all ages and abilities, scenic hacks, and beautiful beach rides.

Hire a bike and cycle the family-friendly route from Penzance to Mousehole, almost entirely off-road and about a 10 mile round trip.

Go seal spotting at Godrevy Head, on the Eastern side of St Ives Bay. If you want to get up close and personal with seals, take a day trip to the Seal Sanctuary at Gweek.

Take a walk through standing stones and subterranean passages - the local landscape is littered with prehistoric remains. Chysauster Ancient Village is a few hundred yards up the road (April to October ). You can also explore the area's more recent history. Pull on a safety hat and go down an 18th century mine at Geevor. Or take a pilgrimage to St Michael's Mount.

Several boats operate out of Penzance and offer all sorts of trips. You can choose from two, four or eight hour fishing trips, or even charter a whole boat.

Take surfing lessons at Sennen or St Ives.

Go sea cliff climbing around Sennen and Landsend. Compass West, based in Sennen, offer climbing lessons.

Try coasteering - climb, scramble, swim and jump your way around the coastline.

Visit some gorgeous gardens…...

Tremenheere sculpture gardens is just down the road. Other gardens in and around Penzance include Trewidden, Trereife and Trengwainton, and towards Helston there is Godolphin House and Gardens, and the Trevarno Estate. Further afield are Trelissick gardens near Truro, Trebah near Falmouth and the Lost Gardens of Heligan near St Austell.

Explore all the brilliant beaches nearby., www. cornwall-beaches. The north coast has secluded rocky coves, whilst the south has some long stretches of sand.
