Much of Cornwall can be reached in under an hour or so because of Ivory Cottage's central location.
Approximately 7 miles away is the cathedral city of Truro and the bustling seaside town of Falmouth, where evening entertainment from quaint eating houses to discotheques can be found. Within a radius of less than 10 miles are the Cornish towns of Helston, Redruth and Camborne. The nearest beach is approximately 6 miles away at Portreath and excellent horse riding stables for trekking are also nearby. Newquay, at 30 minutes drive, is the surfing capital of the UK.
Within easy reach are the gardens of Trelissick, Trebah and Glendurgan, The Flambards Theme Park, Pendennis Castle, Poldark Mines, the Seal Sanctuary along with Cornish Engine Houses and their Beam Engines. For days that have inclement weather, there are also Leisure Centres, Bowling alleys and Laser Shooting, plus lots more.
For the more ambitious, how about a trip to the Lost Gardens of Heligan; the new Eden Project; Goonhilly Earth Station; Land's End plus too many more to detail here. The cottage has a pack of local information for you to browse through including free passes and reduced rates.
Cornwall is truly the county for everybody to enjoy for all seasons. There are the bright cheerful days of spring, the beautiful colours of autumn and the lazy, hazy days of summer.
