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.

August 2017

Truly stunning location with spectacular views and amazing beaches and walks on the doorstep. It's a five minute walk to the minack theatre too which is quite special. I would definitely recommend.

July 2017

A comfortable property in an outstanding location.

June 2017

Our stay at the Tresillion was fantastic. It's a beautiful cottage perfectly located within a five minute walk to both the beach and the incredible Minack Theatre. The house was comfortable, cosy and clean, with great amenities, including a BBQ (which we enjoyed a few times). We especially loved having the pool table as we love a good competition! Not that we stayed in playing pool the whole time; the best bit about the Tresillion is that there's so much to explore around it! We walked to Land's End, we climbed up to the Iron Age castle, we hit the beautiful Porthcurno Beach and went for day trips to the likes of St Ives and St Micheal's Mount.

Overall, we loved our stay at the Tresillion and can't wait until our next visit!

May 2017

Tresillion is a lovely cottage located 'up the hill' in Porthcurno. It is a matter of minutes from the Minack Theatre (the reason we were visiting Cornwall) and a short walk to the stunning beach (down the hill). The cottage has enough room for your party to spread out with a lounge, games room, kitchen and the garden area - this is especially good on those 'wet' days or where a chill day is required.

You are a short drive from Lands End and Penzance and not so far from St Ives, St Micheal's Mount, Praa Sands to name a few of the local attractions.

To note: as the cottage is up the hill at the end of Porthcurno just be aware that if you plan to walk to the beach or theatre you will encounter coaches and cars that will be travelling to the Theatre. This also serves as a reminder when travelling in your car around the narrow lanes - don't take the corners to fast as you just don't know what may be coming the other way.

The cream scones we found in the fridge went down a treat as well!!

Amazing location for walks and peacefulness
