If you’re looking for a rural escape away from the busy towns and a place for some serious peach and quiet, Old Boswednack (Or Old B as we call it!) is the place for you. First of all, to set the scene, Old B is a barn conversion, so that always ticks a box when looking for a rural retreat! It can sleep up to four guests and is dog friendly. You have a spacious garden area and out house called ‘the shack’ which is perfect for a quiet space to get creative. To find out more about Old Boswednack, click here!
Walking in Zennor
If you’re looking to get those legs moving and truly enjoy the great outdoors, Zennor is the spot for you. You are spoilt for choice with a fantastic range of coastal paths and footpaths to explore. You can take to the coast and walk the South West Coastal Path all the way to St Ives (and back if you’re feeling fit), or, take to the hills! You can walk into the moors and submerge yourself in the Cornish history with relics such as Bodrifty’s Iron Age Round House settlement, Nine Maidens standing stones, Lanyon Quoit, Men-an-Tol, Mulfra Quoit and Chun Quoit.
The Moomaid of Zennor
St Senara Church is a pretty magical place. Having stood in Zennor for at least 1400 years it sends you back in time when you step through its doors. It is also where you can find the famous carving of the Mermaid of Zennor. This stems from an old Cornish folk tale and has inspired many stories, poems and much artwork. It is definitely worth getting a look yourself!
Pub lunches (or dinners) are must when in Zennor! You have the choice of two, The Tinner’s Arms and The Gurnard’s Head. Both are quintessentially Cornish and offer a wonderful array of food options. The Gurnard’s Head is a renowned gastro pub and the Tinner’s Arms is an old family favourite for many. For the cosy winter days, they offer shelter and open fires. On gloriously sunny days, they both have large beer gardens with rural views. Is there a better way to enjoy a pint!?
