Lovely sunset visit to Carn Euny, had the site all to ourselves. Staying close by we walked there via overgrown footpaths. Amazingly preserved example of this type of ancient site. Amazing tunnel and underground room.
We met a very friendly cat there, who decided to...More
We parked the car at the bottom of the Carn Chapel Brea hill and walked at least a mile to Carn Euny. No signposts from this direction. We nearly missed the site although there was a green sign close to the site but not visible...More
The road from the north is not suitable for normal cars (your sat Nav might take you this way, our TomTom did). The road from the south is also narrow but smooth and may have refuse lorries!

Another fascinating place on our travels in Cornwall. If anything, we preferred this over Chysauster Ancient Village. It seemed to have more atmosphere. How they dug the underground living quarters is quite amazing. It's free too. The woodland walk to the site is lovely as...More

Came across this place by accident and what a thrill. My husband was so happy. A free site and quite under valued he thought. We did have a bit of a muddy trek through the paddock but it was so worth it, We were the...More
We came accross the sign for this village as were driving back from St Just to our holiday let in Drift village. It is very off the beaten track, but well worth a visit, driving past a sort if tropical jungle at one point. The...More
