Out & About

Things to do and places to go.

You are perfectly placed

Falmouth, on the South Coast is only 7 miles away while Portreath on the North is only 6 miles away

We want you to have an excellent stay at Chy Lowen, Here are just a few local suggestions for you to do on a day out whilst you are here in Cornwall.

A beautiful location

It doesn't matter when you visit Cornwall, or what the weather is like, you'll find no shortage of things to do and spectacular places to see. Whilst fantastic beaches are one of Cornwall's main draws there are also options for rainy days and fun filled family days out. We are situated in a beautiful part of Cornwall and are only 20 minutes drive away from either the North or South Coasts.

Dine out on the beach

There are many gorgeous locations locally to dine out:
The Watering Hole in Perranporth boasts being the UK's only bar on a beach
Rick Stein has fish restaurants in both Falmouth and Newquay.
Lewinick Lodge (our favourite where you can eat on a large decked area overlooking the North Coast)
All these are within easy reach of Chy Lowen

The Bissoe Bike Trail

This area has one of the world's greatest and best conserved concentrations of historic mine buildings and contains unusual wildlife, some of which only thrives in mining landscape habitats.

This Coast to Coast route starts on the Atlantic Coast at Portreath, once an important harbour for the surrounding mines, and finishes at the picturesque harbour village of Devoran.

A number of important mine buildings have been conserved in the area and linked by trails that follow as closely as possible the original tramway and railway routes used to transport ore from mines to ports. These sign-posted, largely off-road routes have been specially created for walkers, cyclists and horse riders.Refreshments and food are available at good pubs in Portreath, Scorrier (mid way) and Devoran.

Sustrans Cornish Way map - covering 180 miles of National Cycle Network from Land's End to Bude - includes this route and is available to purchase from our online shop.

For further information on Cornwall's mining heritage, visit the area's World Heritage website at www.cornish-mining.org.uk.
