Walking along the pristine coastline is one of the main attractions of this region, made famous recently by the success of Poldark.
There are many pretty coves, and one that is known as Priest’s Cove is recorded as having been in use since medieval times. Today it is used by a few fishermen and for the annual swimming races. Other nearby beaches and coves include Kenidjack, Gwynver Beach, Sennen Cove, Nanjizal, Portheras Cove, Porthgwarra and Porthcurno.
The club is situated in the middle of one of the best-known coastal walks in the UK. From the Cape if you turn left, you can walk to Sennen Cove, in approximately 2 hours, and if you turn right, you can walk towards Pendeen lighthouse, or further afield to Gurnards head, or even St. Ives.
There is a network of pretty coastal and bridle paths in and around the lands of the National Trust for some fantastic walks. Fancy going for a ride instead? There are riding tours nearby.
If you’d prefer to stick to two legs, the popular St Just walk takes you in a circle through the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and gives you a real insight into what makes the St Just area so special. You’ll go right past the historical and industrial sites set in coastal heathland and wild flowers. If you’re lucky you might catch a glimpse of basking sharks. Please take care to heed the warning signs and stay clear of the thousands of mineshafts that lay hidden; if you want to explore off the beaten track, please play it safe and keep a lookout!
If you are interested in Poldark filming locations like the Botallack mine, only a half a mile walk from the Club towards St Ives is the Crowns where the famous television series was filmed.
