Tehidy Country Park is
just beside the campsite, and well worth a visit. It is freely
open to the public every day of the year. It was once part
of the great estate of the Bassett tin mining family and has
a mixture of woodlands and lakes, ponds and cascades. There
are 9 miles of paths to explore, as well as a visitor centre,
a sensory trail and garden, beautiful carpets of bluebells
in the spring, a bird hide and sculpture.
The park also has events fields, a barbecue
site for hire, a busy events programme, outdoor education facilities
for schools, a schools and youth camp site and a permanent orienteering
course. For more information, or to
book any of the facilities, contact the Ranger on 01209 714494.
The coastline just a few minutes from
Magor Farm, is owned by the National Trust, so don't forget

The beaches in the south west of Corwall are unrivalled.
Here are a couple which are well worth a visit:
One of the most atmospheric beaches in
Cornwall with it's steep dark cliffs either side of the beach.
When the tide goes out the beach stretches for 2 miles on
down to the next beach at Porthtowan. This beach offers good
surfing together with a summer Lifeguard service, an excellent
beach cafe, toilets, limited car parking and nothing else!
Godrevy and Gwithian sands
is part of the large expanse of beach that stretches all the
way from Hayle and it is popular with families, surfers, sand
yachters, joggers and walkers alike. The section under the
cliffs is tidal, but the sea goes out a fair way leaving lots
of rock pools and there is a Lifeguard present in the summer.
Tate St Ives opened in June 1993 and offers a unique introduction
to modern art, where many works can be viewed in the surroundings
and atmosphere which inspired them.
