Down a winding country lane just 4 miles west of the busy market town of Penzance you'll find the tiny hamlet of Castallack. This peaceful location lies slightly inland between Mousehole (1.5 miles) with its small, safe & sandy harbour beaches and the iconic Lamorna Cove (1mile) famed for it's artistic heritage and much painted by artists past and present. Here at Castallack Farm our 35 acres are home to two ponies, sheep, Chico the llama, pet Kune Kune pigs, geese, chickens & our beloved 'welcoming party' of Tammy, Margot and Dory our dogs & cat. You are welcome to explore via the bridleway that runs through the land and provides a lovely walk for your canine companion.
Penzance has all the amenities of civilization that you may need, shops, pubs, restaurants, galleries galore and a working harbour from which you can take marine wildlife watching and fishing trips. If sea bathing is not for you then a visit to the famous Art Deco open air seawater lido 'Jubilee Pool' is a must, brought into the 21st century by huge efforts on behalf of the community it has recently opened the first 'geo thermally' heated pool in Britain.
Just 3 miles to the east before reaching Penzance is Newlyn, the thriving fishing port where you can explore the ancient alleyways of it's seafaring heritage, This small, unspoilt harbour town offers individual shops, galleries, excellent cafes and even a luxury cinema & cafe in an old converted granite fish warehouse.
To the west of Castallack towards Lands End the world of fabulous beaches, hidden coves and ancient sites is your oyster. The land is within Cornwalls 'Area of Outstanding Beauty' with much of the wild and rugged north coast being a World Heritage Site based on it's tin and copper mining history. The iconic South West Coast Path - the longest walking trail in England surrounds the peninsula and can be accessed almost wherever the land meets the sea, Lamorna, Mousehole, the glorious tiny unspoilt coves of Penberth and Porthgwarra to name just a few. Whether your choice is to swim, surf, snorkel or soak up the sun there's a suitable beach within easy reach & a place here back at Castallack to dry your wetsuits & store your gear.
A little further afield but not much ( 6 miles) is the jewel in the crown of Mounts Bay 'St Michaels Mount', a National Trust property which should not be missed, accessible by foot across the causeway at low tide or by ferry from the granite jettys on Marazion beach. St Ives, across on the north coast but still only 10 miles away is a busy, bustling place full of restaurants, cafes, galleries and with the most beautiful beaches, best reached by train on the 'St Ives branch Line'.
The maritime climate of this area allows beautiful tropical gardens to flourish, very locally are Trewidden and Trengwainton amongst others & further afield the wonderful Trebah Gardens, Trelissick and Glendurgan not to mention the famous Eden Project which is probably best visited on your journey to or from West Cornwall.
