The Hotel’s own beautiful, landscaped gardens overlook Constantine Bay and are themselves the starting point for many of the local walks along the coastal path in either direction. Alternatively, simply choose to spend the day relaxing in our secluded sunken gardens.
This is Betjeman country, a landscape to rival any other in Cornwall; many of its secluded coves can be reached on foot in minutes from the Hotel.
If gardens on a grander scale interest you, then you probably already know that Cornwall is home to six of the National Trust’s very finest. Cornwall also boasts many fine historic houses.

Heligan, seat of the Tremayne family for more than 400 years, is one of the most mysterious estates in England. At the end of the nineteenth century its thousand acres were at their zenith, but only a few years later bramble and ivy were already drawing a green veil over this “Sleeping Beauty”. After decades of neglect, the devastating hurricane of 1990 should have consigned the Lost Gardens of Heligan to a footnote in history, but thankfully didn’t. Website: www.heligan.com
We welcome you to come and share in our enjoyment of Prideaux Place, its grounds and many treasures. The house is a well-known secret in Cornwall and has many things to offer and a history like no other. Website: www.prideauxplace.co.uk
This is the home of the Molesworth-St Aubyn’s and is definitely a lived-in house, not a museum! You will see all the things the family loves best, including their photos, hats on the classical statues and the grandchildren’s toys left around – just like your home! The smell of lunch being prepared wafts through from the private quarters, making you anticipate with pleasure your imminent visit to the tearooms for your own meal. Oscar and Sambo, the family pet dogs, love to welcome visitors too and often join in the guided tour! Website: www.pencarrow.co.uk
