Yay, we're open
Things we love to do (without getting in our car)

On our day off of course!

There is always something to do here in Cornwall. Beautiful walks, serious art and we know you can't be at Blas all the time so here are a few things to work up your appetite... and a few good places to stay too.


1. Surf...

... well, we try anyway, at Porthmeor Beach

2. Fish BBQ on the beach.

Catch some mackerel on the 'Dolly Pentreath' and take to the beach for tea! All you need then is some salad, crusty bread, wedge of lemon and a bottle of Camel Valley dry white. If you don't fancy fishing just go on a boat trip to Seal Island ... amazing. Look out for dolphins too!

3. Walk, walk, walk...

The coast path from St Ives to Zennor and have a pint and a crab sandwich in The Tinners. Get the bus back or come across some of the oldest fields in Britain! Go the other direction to Porth Kidney beach at Lelant (now that's a special beach with a lifeguard) and take a picnic. Take a look at other walking options here.

4. The Tate... need we say more?

A serious gallery and a fab cafe with first class grub. Seriously stunning views of Porthmeor Beach and all those surfers, whatever the weather.

5. The Barbara Hepworth Museum

Now this place is incredible. Look at her studio left untouched since her death and the garden is divine. Entrance cost is included with Tate Gallery ticket.

6. The St Michael's Way

Walking again but what a walk. Ancient pilgrim route that take you from the North coast down to St Michael's Mount (12.5 miles) Try it in stages.

7. The Train to ANYWHERE...

... The St. Ives Bay Line links in with the main Penzance-Paddington line so the world is your oyster. Check out...
