If you fancy a gentler pace of life and have a National Trust pass or enjoy visiting estates, then make sure to pay a visit to the Godolphin Estate. With one of the most important historic gardens in Europe, these 16th century gardens are small but perfectly formed. The wider estate has plenty of walking and the house was one of the most fashionable in 17th Century Cornwall. Stop off for a well-earned cup of tea and slice of cake in the cafe before you leave.
St Michael’s Mount is also a must-see when you are staying in this area of Cornwall. Steeped in history, myths and legend, this is perhaps Cornwall’s best attraction. With a castle, gardens, harbour and cafes, make sure you allow at least a whole afternoon. Check the tide times first, if you want to walk over the causeway but don’t worry, you can always get the ferry if the tides are in while you want to visit.
