Local Attractions: 

After travelling to Maenporth for your holiday, you may not wish to venture out very far on your first day.  The below suggestions either involve a short 10 min journey in the car, or better still, not using the car at all! 

Visit a nearby Gardens:

Set in a valley of 26 acres with its own private beach, Trebah gardens is a short journey from the Estate near Mawnan Smith.  The sub-tropical gardens are popular with our guests with plenty to see in all four seasons, it is well worth a visit.   

The national trust gardens of Glendurgan are a stone through away from Trebah.  Another sub-tropical garden with the impressive Laurel Maze!  At the bottom of the valley is the unspoilt hamlet of Durgan and a small beach.  Here you can borrow fishing nets and buckets to save you carrying your own!  

Pop into Falmouth:

A short drive will take you into the town of Falmouth where you will find several local independent shops as well as some more well-known names.  There are numerous restaurants and cafes in the town to cater for all tastes. 

The Maritime Museum is right on the harbourside and is a great place to stroll around.  The exhibits change frequently and there is always something new to see!  At the moment (summer 2022) there is a monster of the deep exhibition and you can also learn about the history of the Coastguard to mark their 200 year anniversary.  There is also a great café with views out over the harbour!! 

Visit the Beach:

A short walk down the hill (and a slightly longer walk up it feels!!!), is one of the best beaches in Cornwall.  Here you can hire kayaks or paddleboards from Falmouth Surf School & Watersports and enjoy food from the Life’s a beach café on the sand. 

Relax on site:

With a lovely 15 metre swimming pool, tennis courts, woodland walks and a children’s play park, many of our guests choose to stay on-site and relax here.  There are plenty of area to sit and sun bath around the Estate and there is also a BBQ area by the leisure centre for you to use if you wish.    

However you start your holiday at Maenporth, we hope you enjoy your day!!
