Beach lovers are spoiled for choice.
We have great beaches on our doorstep. Our local beaches at Portreath and Porthtowan are only 4 1/2 miles away (10 minutes drive).
There’s even a cycle path down to Portreath beach from our main entrance.
Both are great places to soak up the sun or try your hand at surfing.

Not to mention the stunning beaches of St Ives, Crantock and Newquay.
Cycle From Coast to Coast Too
Cycling enthusiasts can explore Cornwall from coast to coast, directly from our main entrance.
We are located at the heart of Cornwall’s Mineral Tramways cycle and walking trails, a network of more than 50 miles of cycling fun.
The Coast to Coast Trail runs past our entrance on its way from Portreath, on Cornwall’s north coast, to the south coast village of Devoran.
As well as going Coast to Coast, there’s half a dozen different trails of varying scenery and difficulty. The Great Flat Lode is excellent for those who love Cornish mining heritage and The Tehidy trail takes in Tehidy Woods with its popular wild bird lake and cafe.
