Exploring Cornwall's World Heritage Mining Landscape
22nd August 2018
Much of Cornwall’s landscape was transformed throughout the 18th and 19th centuries due to the pioneering copper and tin mining. The mines, engine houses, foundries, towns and ports which developed from the mining had a huge effect on the south-western county, and what remains show the contribution Cornwall and West Devon made to Britain’s Industrial Revolution.
A Day Out in Looe
14th August 2018
The town of Looe on the south coast of Cornwall is just a short drive from our boutique hotel and worth visiting for a day out. There is still a working fishing port at Looe, so you can rest assured that the fish you dine on in the evening is freshly caught that day. The coastal path also passes through the town, so walkers will enjoy heading there for an active day outdoors.
