About the neighbourhood
A picturesque town ringed by glorious beaches and a beautiful harbour. An amazing variety of shops amongst narrow cobbled streets will appeal to some, while others will enjoy its close proximity to coast paths and the wild Cornish country-side. Porthmeor, its largest beach, is a prime surfing venue and has won awards for cleanliness. Overlooking the beach is the Tate Gallery, one of scores of galleries around town, a testament to its renowned artistic community. Carrack Dhu is a minutes walk from the Barbara Hepworth sculpture gardens, and only three minutes from the Tate and Porthmeor beach. Other local attractions include ancient Pagan monuments, St.Michaels Mount, Lands End, Seal Sanctuary, or further afield, the Lost Gardens of Heligan. Activities you can bus...
Getting around
The local bus service is very good - of particular interest is the circular open-top route from St.ives to Lands End to St.Ives. It travels on the stunning winding coast road with many opportunities to jump on and off to explore the local sites, villages and beaches. The bus station is 4 minutes walk away.
The train service serves the main line and is useful for day trips to Truro, Falmouth - or just travel on the branch line itself to explore Carbis Bay, Leland and Hayle Estuary.
Driving - all the sites on the Penwith peninsula are within an hours drive. Eden Project is one hour and 15 minutes away.
