Badgers, rabbits, foxes and bats may be spotted, and there is a lively array of wild flowers.

We have returned from the perfect stay at Nineveh. I have never felt so relaxed and refreshed after a holiday and I believe this is down to the experience at Nineveh. It is an idyllic Cornwall retreat and provided the perfect escape from the busy city life that we are used to. We were lucky to have amazing weather, this...

About the neighbourhood
Just a short walk down the coastal path from our holiday cottages you will find the Levant Mine and Beam Engine. This dramatic cliff-top setting has been described as ‘the queen of Cornwall’s submarine mines’ and the surviving buildings and ruins offer a window on another world where men and women toiled to extract the riches of the earth from beneath the crashing waves.
