From the doorstep you can see and walk straight to the outstanding Pendeen Lighthouse, historic Geevor mine, or peaceful Portheras Cove, a stunning locals beach. For surfers, hop in the car and you can be down on Sennen or Gwenver beaches, both a short drive away. You won’t be disappointed by the stretch of golden sands, dunes and crystal-clear water and popular surf break.
At the end of a day of beaching, head to one of the local pubs: The North Inn is lovely for a sundowner in the garden or good pub grub. Maria Chica’s is a small independent café serving up exceptional tapas style dishes and there’s Lil’s Chippy for fish & chips.
The wonder of Pendeen is that you’re never far from some of Cornwall’s best bits – grab an ice cream from the Moomaids Café in St Just square only 10 minutes away, or dine out in St Ives in less than 30 minutes or spend the day on the magical St Michael’s Mount.
