With the family

Little Pengelly’s  location – nestled right into the foot of the Cornish peninsula – gives us access to some of Cornwall’s most well loved family attractions. There are a few secret spots, we can’t wait for you to explore, whilst you’re here with us. 

Helston Heritage Railway

All Aboard

Just a stone’s throw from Little Pengelly is the  Helston Heritage Railway.  One of the UK’s oldest train lines – and definitely the most southerly – the Helston Railway passes through some stunning Cornish countryside. See what local wildlife you can spot from your carriage window and why not treat the family to a unique lunch in the restored buffet car café?

Surf at Hayle

Catch a Wave

We’re lucky enough to be splashing distance from some of Cornwall’s best surfing beaches.  Whether you’re a seasoned thrill seeker or fancy throwing yourself into the waves to have a go, you can do it here.  With surf schools to suit every ability and kit hire to get you started, you can easily lose a day trying to catch those perfect waves.


A Fun Family Day Out

Where can you immerse yourself in a traditional Victorian village one minute and ride some of Cornwall’s most thrilling fairground rides the next? The unique Flambards, that’s where! Flambards is a great place to spend an adrenaline fuelled, educational day out for the whole family!

Visit Penzance

Independant shops

Sitting right on the water, enjoy Penzance’s Chapel Street and Causeway Head. There are lovely independent retailers selling locally made goods.  If it’s adventure you’re after, take a boat ride along the coast, venture across to St Michael’s Mount at low tide or even head out on a unique snorkel adventure. And of course, there are plenty of fantastic places to  to eat in Penzance too!

National Maritime Museum


The Cornish coastline is almost 700km long, find out about the rich maritime history of Cornwall at the National Maritime Museum.   Retelling the stories of the Cornish coastline through its exhibits, there is every type of boat from our shores. We love spending a day touring the museum, there really is something for the whole family.

Land's End

Head all the way West

We’d always recommend a visit to Lands’ End – the UK’s most westerly point. There are  stunning views, it’s really easy to spend a whole day exploring the clifftops, wildlife spotting and enjoying the crashing waves.

Minack Theatre

Beautiful Views

The Minack Theatre, is Cornwall’s unique clifftop amphitheatre, the views from the benches are our favourite! Visit just for the spectacle or check out the events programme.  Below the Minack, sits the stunning Porthcurno Beach. Often described as a paradise, we’d definitely recommend wandering down, to visit it.
