South West Coast Path - Britain's longest National Trail runs along the promenade in front of the Camilla House. Spectacular walking to see Land's End, the Lizard Peninsula and the newly awarded UNESCO World Heritage site of the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape.
Public transport links to start & end various West Cornwall sections of the path are good and Susan & Simon can arrange drop-off and pick-up for those bits where the buses don't go. Packed lunches and maps are available at the Camilla House.

On Your Bike - The Camilla House has some bicycles available for loan to guests who wish to take advantage of the Cornish Way Cycle Route. There are easy routes from the Camilla House to St.Michael's Mount and Mousehole or why not have a leisurely day exploring the back lanes between Penzance and Land's End? Bikes are available in exchange for a charitable donation to the RNLI (supported by the Camilla House).

Let The Train Take The Strain - St.Ives, Truro, Falmouth and Looe are all easily reached by train from Penzance, and being the end of the line there is no danger of missing your stop when you return! Check out the excellent Car Free Days Out web site by following the link on the left.

The Ultimate Car Free Experience - we are sorry to see that Harry Safari will not be continuing his tours but don't worry, there are worthy alternatives offered by Pixie Tours and Western Discoveries - please follow the links or contact us for more information.
