Once outside the front door of the Camilla House there is so much in to see and visit in the great Cornish outdoors, why not start with a gentle walk to nearby Mousehole?
Venture down to the Lizard Peninsula and visit beautiful & remote areas like Mullion Cove
And down to the most southerly tip of mainland Britain - Lizard Point
To the west of Camilla House lies the world famous Land's End - visit by cycling, public transport, in the car or walking along the South West Coast Path
No matter what time of year the Cornish outdoors provides breath-taking beauty - here looking from Cape Cornwall toward Land's End in a Winter storm
Walking on the South West Coast Path brings you to many dramatic sections of the coastline, here at Gwennap Head between Land's End and Porthgwarra
Heading back from Porthcurno to Penzance will bring you to Lamorna Cove
While on the north coast there is the famous Godrevy Island and its light house
Explore the land of Arthurian legends with places like Tintagel
Or simply walk along uncluttered beaches to enjoy the fresh Atlantic air
There are plenty of walks away from the coast that bring you into the country, here a typical Cornish Hedgerow in Autumn
Enjoy the outdoors in Winter, although Cornwall has a much milder climate than many other parts of the UK it does occasionally snow
A land for all seasons, if you like walking then the cliff tops in Spring offer wonderful colours and views
Even in the middle of an industrial landscape like at Botallack (here is the Count House) the flora and fauna can occupy you for hours
You never know what you will find in Cornwall while exploring outdoors - here's a Cloutie Tree near Madron Well
Public transport is a good option for accessing many of
the areas of West Cornwall, or borrow some of the bicycles available
at the Camilla House to roam around the Cornish lanes.
Walking on the South West Coast Path or exploring many
of the inland paths and trails is a delight. Why not order a packed lunch
or picnic hamper from the Camilla House to make your day-out a comfortable
