Cape Cornwall ~ Penzance ~ Land's
Boswedden House is a beautiful
Georgian house set in 1.75 acres of garden providing
a beautiful, tranquil and comfortable environment for B & B, workshops,
seminars and retreats.
Built at the beginning of the 19th century
as a mine captain's elegant family home, the house is about a 10-minute
walk from the sea at Priest's Cove and looks out over fields and National
Trust land to the sea. The South West Coast Path and mile upon mile of
stunning scenery is even nearer. In spring the hedges and pastures are
filled with wild flowers. St. Just, the most westerly town in mainland
Britain, is just under a mile to our east.
St. Just-in-Penwith is a handsome town of
great Cornish character, much of which is designated a Conservation Area.
Flights to Isles of Scilly, visible on the horizon, are available from
St. Just airport a couple of miles away.
This area has the largest concentration of
ancient sites in the British Isles. The nearby former Geevor tin mine,
now a museum, captures the 4000 year history of mining in this district.
The South West Coast Path is readily accessible for spectacular walks
- long or short. Just a mile or so away is the beautiful Cot Valley. This
part of the coast with its rich wildlife, industrial archaeology and fascinating
geology is in the care of the National Trust. Cape Cornwall - the only
cape in England - dominates the nearby coastline, its great hump-backed
headland jutting out defiantly into the Atlantic, dividing the Celtic
Sea from the English Channel. The views from the summit are outstanding.
Small boats still work from Priest's Cove on its south side. The spectacularly
situated Cape Cornwall golf course is a two-minute walk away and horseback
riding, fishing, diving and, of course, sea bathing and surfing are all
Inland it is a 'living museum' of ancient
Celtic sites - stone circles, standing stones, fogous, great chamber tombs
- all accessible through a network of footpaths and country roads. Bring
your walking shoes and/or bicycles.
