There is a wealth of information about the local area on the Cornwall Tourist Board website, but here is a selection of some of the most popular places to visit during your stay at The Chapel Guest House.
The Eden Project
Just 3 miles away is the world famous ecological project built into a disused china clay quarry. A mecca for plant lovers and location of a James Bond movie!
The Lost Gardens of Heligan
Just 11 miles south is the famous garden resurrected by volunteers and now being run as a fully working garden for produce and for pleasure.
5 miles away is the harbour where the collection of “tall ships” has made Charlestown a great attraction for those who share an interest in sailing ships and the sea, not to mention the excellent eating places!. Don't forget to check out the shipwreck centre!
The China Clay Country Park
Just 500 metres away, the park, also known as Wheal Martyn, is the only china clay museum in the UK. Its 26 acres chart the history and technology of china clay extraction and its effect on the landscape. Now a part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, the museum also has extensive nature trails. The China Clay Trail cycle route also starts here.
Alongside the A30 sits the late Victorian country estate of Lanhydrock. Now owned by the National Trust, it has extensive servants quarters, kitchens, dairy, buttery as well as the family’s quarters. The well maintained gardens are essential viewing!
