The West Country region
In the last decade Cornwall has emerged as one of the world's iconic destinations.
From the dramatic coastline of the north to the sheltered bays in the south, from ancient moorland to soft river estuaries, surfers, walkers, sailing buffs, gastronauts and visitors simply seeking a break from a hectic world have discovered a fascinating, vibrant culture, first class accommodation, food to die for and a naturally thrilling adventure playground.
Cornwall has been a natural home to inspiration, art and ideas since the early 19th century. So much so that, apart from London, you'll find nowhere in the whole country that's host to more working artists than Cornwall.
The county's dramatic landscape has also provided the backdrop for many a film and TV production, and nowhere more so than the little fishing village of Port Isaac - which is now synonymous as the fictional Port Wenn in ITV's Doc Martin.
Pengersick Castle (only 2 doors down!)
"It is the dual tower complex of this, which survives today. Its spacious newel stair is one of the best to be found anywhere in the country."
Tate St Ives
"International Modern and Contemporary Art"
"The largest conservatories in the world, cutting edge iconic
architecture, awe inspiring gardens, a rainforest... the list goes on!"
"The Minack Theatre was the inspiration and life’s work of one
remarkable woman, Rowena Cade."
Healey's Cornwish Cyder Farm
"We are the largest Cornish Cyder maker in Cornwall and the only
distillers making Cyder Brandy and Fruit spirits. In fact we have
Cornwall’s only distillery - the first in Cornwall for 300 years. "
Geevor Tin Mine
"Located on the historic site of the one of the largest preserved mine
sites in the country, housed in 2 acres of listed buildings, Geevor’s outstanding collections tell the story of Cornwall’s industrial mining past."
"At award-winning Newquay Zoo you can experience the world's wildlife
and have a great family day out."
Here is a small list of the various National Trust attractions available near Penzance. For more information on attractions in Cornwall - please visit the National Trust website here.
St Michaels Mount
"Still home to the St Aubyn family as well as a small community, this iconic rocky island is crowned by a medieval church and castle – with the oldest buildings dating from the 12th century."
"With plants from around the globe scattered throughout this 10-hectare (25-acre) garden, there is something to inspire around every corner."
Levant Mine and Beam Engine
"Part of Cornwall and West Devon Mining World Heritage Site, this is the only Cornish beam engine anywhere in the world that is still in steam on its original mine site."
Cornish Mines and Engines
"At the very heart of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site sit these two great beam engines, originally powered by high-pressure steam boilers introduced by local hero Richard Trevithick."
