The West Country region

Lanner near Redruth is a great place for walking, horse riding, fields and mining area with many local attractions nearby such as the beaches of North and South, St Ives, Penzance, Landsend, Eden Project, Poldark Mine, Golf Courses, Cycling the Bissoe Trail, going to the local pub or shopping in Truro, Falmouth etc all within a 10 to 45 mins car drive. The lovely mild cornish climate is ideal for getting outdoors and taking in the fresh cornish air. There are country agricultural shows in June Royal Cornwall show and July Stithians show,. The area steeped in History with many National Trust gardens which are a real picture in Summer will keep you busy. Why not take a boat ride down the River Fal to Helford or from Penzance, gateway to the Isles of Scilly. Visit the rolling atlantic breakers and do some surfing from the fantastic sandy beaches as good as any in the world if not better!


Lanner is a mining village and within 5 minutes you are on a lovely walk up Carn Marth with views for miles, you will see a few people and lots of horses, and general wildlife. Truro is on 12 mins drive from Nelsons Retreat and is the Cathedral City of Cornwall. Falmouth with its Yahting Marina and south coast beaches is a 20 minute drive, visit maritime square and enjoy Rick Steins fish and chips or go to the Minack Theatre for a shakespear play open air or a lively show at the Hall for Cornwall.

Have a traditional cream tea in the many outlets providing home cooking and traditional classics sich as the CORNISH PASTY!!
