National Trust Spots

In 1895 Octavia Hill, Canon Hardwicke Rawnsley and Sir Robert Hunter came together to establish the National Trust. Now the National Trust care for 780 miles of coastline, over 248,000 hectares of land, over 500 historic houses, castles, ancient monuments, gardens, parks and nature reserves (including 9 lighthouses, 56 villages, 39 pubs and a gold mine).

In Cornwall we’re lucky enough to have over 50 National Trust sites to visit across the county. Given that over half of the Cornish coast is owned by the National Trust, alongside preservation of Cornwall’s industrial heritage sites such as fishing coves and tin mining sites, you’re never far away from a National Trust site in the South West.
