Surf Spot
“This is a stunning coastal location close by Redruth. Highly recommended for a sunny day out.”

Gastropub
$$$
“Fantastic food & drink and a great atmosphere. This is our favourite local pub! We recommend that you book a table if you would like to eat in the restaurant as they are usually very busy. You can also buy food from the bar menu on the pub side of the building - it is a simpler menu, but still wonderful food. They often have live music/events - check their Facebook page for details of things coming up soon.”

Campground
“There is a small climbing wall and a children's play area with a café all of which are perfect for under 10's on a rainy day. You do not have to be staying at Gwel an Mor to use the facilities. There is also a small swimming pool and a spa on the site, which you can book into if you fancy some pampering.”

They have this delightful shop in the small village of Portreath, just along the coast as well as another in Lanner and a Drive Thru in Pool (inbetween Camborne & Redruth) just off the A30.”
