Local Area

"Zennor is a most beautiful place: a tiny granite village nestling under high shaggy moor-hills and a big sweep of lovely sea beyond, such a lovely sea, lovelier even than the Mediterranean... It is the best place I have been in, I think."
D.H Lawrence, 1916

Tremedda sits on the north coast of Cornwall and has easy access to the South West Coast Path .

Once on the coast path, you can either head west towards Lands End or east towards St Ives and beyond. There are a number of small private coves that can be reached from the path.

Zennor, a five minute walk along the field path is home to the infamous The Tinners Arms pub, which was built in 1271 and with its open log fires, stone floors and low ceilings has changed little over the years. It serves real Cornish ales and food using the best local ingredients.

Zennor is famed for its tale, The Mermaid of Zennor, in which a young Cornishman is lured into the sea below the village by a beautiful mermaid. Zennor's Norman church features a 600 year old carving of the mythical mermaid. There is also a village museum.

A few miles further west along the coast is award-winning The Gurnard's Head Inn, renowned for its fresh and seasonal menu, which changes daily. The tables in the bar, warmed by log fires and bordered by back copies of Giles cartoon annuals, are as popular as those in the red and blue dining room.
