The West Country 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.

St Ives

St Ives: popular, attractive old harbour fishing town, nearly surrounded by superb beaches. Narrow, cobbled streets, splendid Tate Gallery and Barbara Hepworth's studios. Leisure centre (indoor pool). On the railway. Superb cliff/headland walks to Zennor (good pub), and beyond. Golf, 2 miles; Penzance, 9; Land's End, 16. Carbis Bay,1½ miles.

"Great location, great place"

We arrived on Saturday unloaded the car, drove to the local Tesco to buy supplies for the week. Parked the car and that was the last time we got in the car for a week.
Everything (beaches, town, restaurants, quirky shops) was in walking distance from this location, even with our 18 month old toddler.
Was rather liberating not having to drive for a week.

Will definitely return to Dolphins again!!

Thank you so much for your kind review, I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Dolphins. I hope that we might see you again in the future.
