Welcome to Penwith Peninsula


The twisting B3306 coast road is a rollercoaster, winding through a panorama of granite-strewn moorland and patchwork fields, some of which date back to medieval times. Craggy tors and auburn heaths dominate the horizon, and broken cliffs tumble down into booming surf. It’s scarcely populated now, but during Neolithic times this empty landscape was home to a string of ancient settlements, the remains of which can still be seen scattered among the granite rocks.
