Kernow – we are the County famous for Land’s End, King Arthur and Camelot, Poldark, Daphne du Maurier, Doc Martin and more recently for TV’s Beyond Paradise (filmed very local to us here in Looe).

Mariners, miners, pirates and smugglers, Knights, pioneers and engineers, artists, gigs (traditional rowing boats!), shanties, pasties, and clotted cream. Whatever your fascination and interests, there is so much to see and do, you won’t be able to do it all in one visit!

We have some wonderful National Trust and English Heritage properties in Cornwall. Tintagel and Pendennis Castles are English Heritage properties. Antony House, Cotehele, Lanhydrock, Trerice, St. Michael’s Mount to name a few, and many coastal areas belong to the National Trust too.

We also have many private gardens and Estates welcoming visitors such as the Port Eliot House and Gardens and Mount Edgecumbe House, both nearby.  Several accessible beaches and beautiful gardens.

So, to help you here are some useful links to aid planning your outings, restaurants etc.

We still highly recommend to research and book ahead or risk being disappointed. 😎

For family activities and entertainment start with these very informative links:

Other ideas…

  • If you like stepping back in time, and puffing through the Cornish countryside, there is the Bodmin and Wenford Steam Railway.
    Ph: 01208 73555
    It is recommended that you book in advance for wheelchair users, and they can only accommodate 4 chairs per trip.
  • Cycle the Camel Trail, a lovely easy trail along the Camel estuary.
    The link below has tandem wheelchair hire – we know of a guest who has tried this and recommends it. Just need a willing cyclist 😊
    This is also a walking trail, very flat and easy to do a section of it.
  • Eden Project – their website says all visitors must book in advance and looks to be online only – however for the tramper you need to book through their box office!
    Info below taken from their web page.

    All-terrain Tramper mobility scooter.

    The Eden Project is pleased to partner with Countryside Mobility to offer an all-terrain ‘Tramper’ mobility scooter, enabling you to discover our extensive Outdoor Gardens and estate.
    Able to take on the steeper gradients of our former clay-pit, the Tramper allows previously challenging areas to be easily explored.
    As we have just one Tramper available for hire, it is strongly recommended to book ahead.
    If you would like to book a Tramper please get in touch directly with the Eden Team on  or call us on 01726 811911.

  • There are quite a few fishing and leisure trip charters along the Quay in Looe.
    Two skippers are equipped to take a wheelchair, but access to the boat is very dependent on tide times.
    Advice is to phone a few days before your arrival date for tides and availability etc.


Over the border in Devon, Plymouth is not far away at all and boasts many great attractions.

  • The National Marine Aquarium
    The largest aquarium in the UK and still the deepest tank in Europe.
    You can see the sharks being fed!
  • Wheelchair accessible boat trips around the sound
    Enjoy live commentary on the great and very proud naval history of Plymouth and Drake’s Mayflower.
  • Plymouth Hoe and the Barbican
    This area is full of history, including the iconic Smeaton’s Tower (lighthouse), Drake’s statue, and the imposing War memorial of huge tablets recognising those lost in conflicts.
    The views from here over the Tinside Lido and out to Drake’s Island and over the Sound to Mount Edgecombe are magnificent.
