At any time of year, Trewinnard is a beautiful
place to be and there is always something to see and do in
the local area.
The River Hayle Valley is on the boundary
of the farm and is listed as a County Wildlife Site by Cornwall
Wildlife Trust. The whole valley floor is a wonderful mosaic
of wet woodland, wet grassland, reedbed, wet heathland and
other habitats that support a wide range of species such as
otter, kingfisher, reed bunting and others both rare and common.
It is one of the richest valley complexes in Cornwall, particularly
in the west, and it opens out into the Hayle estuary, the last RSPB
site in the far west, great for wildfowl and sea birds in
Lovers of the outdoor life can enjoy endless
walks and cycle paths close by, beaches and coast paths only
ten minutes away and we are ideally situated as a base from
which to explore both the Land’s End and Lizard peninsulas.
With the mild climate provided by the Gulf
Stream, Cornwall’s countryside is a joy in any season
but the gardens particularly are truly magnificent in the
spring when the magnolias and camellias are in bloom. There
is a wonderful selection of private and National Trust houses
and gardens within easy reach of Trewinnard, including St
Michael’s Mount three miles away, Trengwainton, Trewidden,
Godolphin, Trevano and Trelowarren are close. The Eden Project
is a 45 minutue run, and a day trip to the Isles of Scilly
by helicopter from Land's End Airport to the famous Tresco Abbey Gardens is possible.
For golfers, West Cornwall and Tehidy Golf
Clubs are both conveniently close by, together with a number
of smaller courses and a driving range within a few miles.
Horse riding is available at Old Mill Stables, Lelant. Fishing
can be enjoyed in the River Hayle or as a sea trip and there
are surfing schools at Hayle, St Ives and Sennen.
You can also explore the
county’s rich Celtic heritage, enjoy a performance at
the open air Minack Theatre at Porthcurno, or go underground at the fascinating World Heritage site at Geevor Tin Mine. After all that, you will certainly be
glad of the chance to relax and unwind in the peace of Trewinnard.
Enjoy the town of Penzance or park your car at St Erth railway station
and take the short scenic railway to St Ives to visit the
St Ives Tate and enjoy numerous restaurants there.
