Where to go and what to do during your stay in Cornwall
There are many places to visit during your stay in Cornwall and also, for the really fit among you, there are some great coastal paths to walk.
A warm welcome awaits you at Bolankan Cottage.
In the latter part of the season we welcome the bird watching fraternity (twitchers) for the birds annual migration.
Close by to Bolankan Cottage there is Geevor Tin Mine (www.geevor.com), once a working tin mine till it was shut down in the late 80s, now a museum dedicated to those who went underground. Geevor Tin Mine and surrounding area has been awarded World Heritage Status!
A short drive from the cottage is Porthcurno Telegraph Museum (www.porthcurno.org.uk), since 1870 linking The British Isles with the rest of the world via cables under the sea, until the introduction of satellites.
The Minack Theatre (www.minack.com)is but a stones throw away with productions from May to September and the visitor centre is open all year.
There is plenty to do for the kids with Flambards at Helston (www.flambards.co.uk) and Paradise Park near Hayle(www.paradisepark.org.uk) plus many other attractions of which information is available in special packs in your room.
And last but not least who would not want to go to the very tip of England with a visit to Lands End (www.landsend-landmark.co.uk). Visitors to Lands End can experience the spectacular firework displays every Tuesday & Thursday throughout August.
How would you fancy a trip to the Isles of Scilly? Isles of Scilly day trips by Skybus from Lands End Airport (www.landsendairport.co.uk). The airport is situated 1/4 mile from Bolankan Cottage. Scenic flights are also from the airport. Alternatively if you want a sea trip to the Isles, the ferry sails from Penzance from April to October.

We are a little inland from the coastal path, but we would be happy to collect you from Sennen/Land's End or Porthcurno if required, for a small fee. We can drop you back the next morning.
