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.
Dowran: hamlet of farms and ancient cottages deep in granite hedgerow lanes, 2 miles from St Just, and 4 from the magnificent sand/surf beach at Sennen Cove. The Minack Theatre (open-air, cliffside), 7 miles. Land's End, about 6 miles. Moorland with many prehistoric remains, footpaths and pony-trekking nearby.
