Ten reasons why Tehidy Holiday Park has a perfect location 5 of 10 – Lands End in Cornwall
The infamous Lands Endin Cornwall is only 35 minutes from Tehidy Holiday Park. Whether your new to Cornwall or a seasoned explorer of the Duchy there is a route we recommend to guests. It’s a full day out but takes in some amazing sights and scenes.
Take the A30 South – it goes all the way to Lands End but we suggest the following stops along the way – choose the ones depending on your preferences.
- At the village of Crowlas (just before Penzance) follow the brown heritage signs (on the crossroads) to Chysaucester. Chysaucester is a wonderful bronze age village discovered in the 70′s and is set on the valley side with views over St Michaels Bay.
- On the roundabout as you join the southern coast road take the exit to Marazion and parking to visit St Michael’s Mount. But to be honest this is best kept for a day on its own unless you are pushed for time. Remember to check the tide tables so you can walk over the causeway to St Michael’s, if the tides don’t work out you can take a boat over!
- After Penzance you will see signs for Newlyn and Mousehole. When you get into Newlyn go straight over at the crossroads this takes you along the small coast road, past the harbour to Mousehole. As you get to Mousehole look out for a space on the roadside – free parking, then walk in. Mousehole has VERY narrow streets and is a wonderful place to explore, it’s famouus for it’s harbour and the stories about the Mousehole Cat.
- Further along the A30 you have Lamorna, Penberth Cove (below Treen) and Porth Curno (and the Minack Theatre).
- We usually suggest parking at Sennen Cove which is a stunning beach and harbour, from here the walk into Land’s End along the coastal footpath is only 2 miles and is gorgeous. The lighthouse 2 miles off shore is the famous Longships.
- From Land’s End take the B3306 up the Northern Coast to Cape Cornwall – very dramatic, Zennor – good pub and food, then on to St Ives. The raeson we suggest you come back on this road at the end of the day is for the sunsets over the ocean. With a bit of scattered cloud in the sky you are in for a spectacular display.
