A guide to the West Country from the people that know…

Cape Cornwall

There is something truly magical about this place, the walk around the Cape has breathtaking views in all directions. In summer, there's a refreshment kiosk nearby, or pack up a picnic to enjoy at this stunning spot.

A birthday treat

My birthday morning, 8.00 am, glorious weather, sea, serene and peaceful. A special memory on a special day

The walk from St Just to Cape Cornwall on a bright day is fantastic - the views out to sea are just breath-taking.

beautiful views

Played golf on this - at first sight, easy course, but the howling gale proved difficult. Try it on a calm day the views of the ocean from virtually all holes are fantastic.

First trip to the Minack and an excellent experience despite wind and drizzle, also very reasonably priced seating.

Stunning scenery

Great walks from Cape Cornwall to the Geever tin mine along the coastal path or alongside the easier track overlooking the sea and farmland - both stunning walks looking out to sea and also good birdwatching country. You can feel history as you walk!

fabulous walks

Walked from St Just out to Cape Cornwall - stunning views. Fabulous cream tea at the little kiosk on the car park and wonderful coves to escape to on the way back to St Just. We loved it and so did our doggie.

Fabulous alternative to Lands End

If you want to say you have seen Lands End, but don't want to pay to visit and run the gauntlet of the 'amusements', Cape Cornwall is your best bet. Park in the NT car park, get a nice cup of tea (in a proper mug for £1) from the van in the carpark, walk out to the monument and admire the view of Lands End in the distance. Lovely.

Breathtaking views and great walks. Make sure to call into the Coastguard station, friendly staff (all volunteers) with great stories and a wealth of local information.
