Things to do near Porthcurno

Minack Theatre
Built in to the cliff face at Porthcurno, the world famous Minack Theatre runs outdoor performances from May to September attracting many who wishing for an ‘al fresco’ theatrical experience with the most beautiful back drop of the sea and sunset. This world-renowned theatre is truly a theatre under the stars. It was built by hand by Rowena Cade and her gardener Billy Rawlings and Tom Angove. The story of how the theatre came about is a tribute to one woman’s vision. Rowena died in 1983. The theatre has undergone technical modifications to cope with the increased audience numbers. However, it is still a truly unique and magical place, with seats carved into the cliffs and a stunning backdrop and sea views. Always take hats and sunscreen for matinees; and warm clothes for the evening. Arriving early with your picnic basket is positively encouraged and The Minack has its own micro-climate and rarely cancels a show. Read more on our blog post: Theatres in Cornwall.

Porthcurno Telegraph Museum
Visit the Telegraph Museum which will walk you through how Sir John Pender formed the Falmouth-Gibraltar-Malta Telegraph Company in 1876. Between the two world wars Porthcurno cable office was for a time the largest submarine cable station in the world. The cable office closed in 1970, but Cable & Wireless training college remained operational up until 1993. The museum holds company records and tells the story of this major international communications centre which was tucked away in a Cornish cove. To find out more, you can read our blog post: A day out at Porthcurno Telegraph Musuem.

Places to visit

Treen
Conveniently located for cliff walking and bird watching, Treen is just a short walk away from the secluded sandy beaches of Porthcurno. 

Logan Rock
Logan Rock, meaning 'balanced stone' is also closeby. This granite boulder weighing approximately 80 tonnes, could once be rocked by applying just a little pressure. The story goes that it was once dislodged in 1824 by a group of British seamen wishing to show their skill and courage. Outraged by this, the local residents insisted the rock was replaced, as it had become a local landmark. Ironically this was a much more challenging feat, taking 60 men, 7 months to complete. Logan's Rock still moves today, but with much less ease than it once did.

Dating back over 400 years, the Logan Rock Inn serves good food and beer and offers a friendly, country-pub atmosphere.

Penberth Cove
Home to a small fishing fleet, Penberth Cove is nearby and provides the perfect place to relax in a tranquil setting. Ideal for a spot of birdwatching or simply enjoying the scenery.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.

Best house in the most sublimely beautiful setting!

Jun 2018

You're welcome to use any remarks we've made above. Of course the good weather we had helped us enjoy ourselves (breakfast in the garden, early evening drinks with sun sparkling on silver sea) but I think it would be a great place even in a storm!

Thank you.

Are we allowed to book for 2019?
