There really is something for everyone in Cornwall, from beautiful beaches to delightful theme parks. Although this is by no means a comprehensive list of ‘things to do’, you might also like to consider some of the more unusual places of interest in our list of “Unusual Days Out in Cornwall”.

Bodmin Jail

Bodmin Jail is a unique heritage asset, which has been allowed to decay until its present owners acquired it in the summer of 2004. They are ploughing all the revenue from entrance fees and profits from the shop and business as a whole back into the Jail with an extensive plan to revive this infamous Jail; by replacing roofs, internal structures and showing the cells as they once were, whilst also incorporating a fascinating museum of Cornish penal life over the last three centuries.

Visit the cold dank cells, look up at the thin light filtering through a small barred window and imagine being sentenced to even a week in such desolation, a very lonely life with the knowledge each day would bring more of the same cold, hunger and hard labour, on the treadmill as a civil prisoner, or “cannon ball” catch for naval prisoners; designed to keep you fit for battle on your release.

Museum of Witchcraft

For those seeking something very different, the Museum of Witchcraft, located in Boscastle for fifty years and amongst Cornwall’s most popular museums, houses the world’s largest collection of witchcraft related artefacts and regalia.

The Museum was formerly located in both Windsor and Bourton-on-the-Water, but was forced to move after several protests from local residents, including death-threats, fire bombs and finally an arson attack.The museum seeks to portray a full history of witchcraft and related beliefs, and has displays ranging from images of witches in children’s fiction to a collection of items of torture used on witches. The Museum reminds people that some of the displays are controversial, and sensitive children may be upset by some of what they see. Link

Something very different

Bed & Breakfast

Unfortunately, as a result of ongoing restrictions, we are unable to offer Bed & Breakfast facilities at this time.

We hope to be able to restore this service within a few weeks, however we are limited by the gradual lifting of restrictions and hope that our customers and friends will understand our difficulties.

The pub is open for business and we will do everything we can to deliver the best experience we can under present circumstances.

Local businesses like ours need your help in these times, so please come and support us. You will be most welcome!
