Penwith Peninsula Tour Map

From the First and Last Inn we took a tour of the peninsula, taking in lumps of stone perched in a way no human could have constructed, magical dells full of wishes and spectacular sights that make you drop all your thoughts and just be.

The far west is a world of its own. There's no mistaking the barren beauty of a winter here, or the colourful heather-strewn landscapes of high summer.Whatever the weather, it's a journey worth making, full of intrigue and beauty, with plenty of pub stops along the way. We'd go as far as saying a tour of the area is The Loveliest Loop on Earth...

We only made a few stops on our Magical Mystery Tour, as we squeezed them in to a single day. But the map meanders its way around the few worthy stops that are described in our 'Magical Mystery Tour of far west Cornwall'.

Tregonning Hill Barefoot walk

Inspired by our encounter with Steve Bloor and the Godolphin House Barefoot Trail, we decided to try out our own walk with naked feet, so we hot-footed it over to nearby Tregonning Hill.
