Ideas for Days Out

Local places to visit and things to do

Cornwall has a wealth of tourist attractions and you will never be short of ideas for days out sightseeing and enjoying some of the wonderful produce from the county. Here are a few ideas.

Tourist attractions

Some of the major attractions include
The Eden Project
The Lost Gardens of Heligan
Lanhydrock House (National Trust)
Pendennis Castle
are all within 30 minutes of Treworgans.

Beaches and Coastline

Both the north and south coasts are within 9 miles so we are well placed to visit many of Cornwall’s beautiful beaches. There are opportunities to hire sandchairs at various locations around the coast.

Filming locations

As Cornwall is frequently used as a film location. Visitors often like to see these places for real. Poldark fans can easily reach Charlestown and Wheal Coates, and for Doc Marten enthusiasts Port Issac on the North Coast makes a good day out from our base here in Ladock.

Accessible Trails

There are various accessible trails throughout the county. The Camel Trail follows the Camel estuary between Padstow and Wadebridge and beyond inland to Bodmin. This is a great way to see wildlife and enjoy many different views.
Bridge Bike Hire has bikes for all ages and abilities and one that can carry a wheelchair.
Parts of the South West Coast Path are accessible too.
Other ideas for paths/trails can in the information folder in the cottages.


Many of the swimming pools in Cornwall provide good accessible facilities. The pools at Truro and Waterworld (Newquay) are the closest.
Hydrotherapy pools are also available an the Merlin MS Centre (only 5 miles away) and Polkyth Leisure Centre in St Austell.

Water Sports

There are many options for water based activities both on the coast and inland. South West Lakes offer a wide range of activities from sailing to fishing. For the more adventurous Sailability at Mylor Harbour offers Power boating and Sailing experiences.


The local cinemas at Truro, St Austell and Newquay are all accessible.
