Rural St Ives
Head inland into the wild and rugged countryside and moorland away from the coast. Along the Penzance backroad, climb the Neolithic tor at Trencrom. This Iron Age hill fort has commanding views of both north and south Cornish coasts. Walk through these stunning rock forms where internationally celebrated artist Barbara Hepworth drew her inspiration. One of Cornwall’s best gastropubs is located in nearby Halsetown. Lying within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is the isolated village of Zennor. This idyllic haven was home to D. H. Lawrence during WWI. The whole of the Land’s End peninsula is alive to the ancient world with the Iron Age settlement at Chysauster and various other megalithic burial chambers. For that ultimate connection with nature, enjoy the coastal path by foot. Or if you prefer, explore the countryside by horseback.
