    Wheal Coats

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Wheal Coats is a group of old mine buildings situated on a cliff near Chapel Porth. Copper and tine was mined here in the 19the century and early 20th century and today you find many remains of these times at that place. I would have loved to walk there also, but we were tired already. So we only saw the remains around Wheal Coats from far away near St Agnes Beacon.

    St Agnes Beacon

    View towards St Agnes from Beacon

    St Agnes Beacon is a hill (about 190 m) near St Agnes. We did not climb on the top but took a nice path at the food of this hill when walking from St Agnes Head back to the village. That already gave us great views on the coast to the east and west. We were to exhausted from walking so much that we didn't climb up the hill although it's not that high, but I guess on the top the view must be even better as you can see completely around!

    Rocks

    St Agnes Head is found west/ north-west of the village. The path along the coast from Trevaunance beach to St Agnes Head is very nice and probably is even more when everything is in blossom. On that way you will pass the Bawden Rocks, two rocks in the sea that also are called "Man and his Man" or "Cow and Calf", probably because one of them is smaller. There's also a small car park near St Agnes Head, and from there you have great views on the coast in the south towards Chapel Porth.

    Trevellas Porth

    Trevellas Porth is another small beach (mainly pebble) east of Trevaunance Cove. You can take the South West Coast path from Trevaunance Cove and enjoy the views! Note that the coastal path goes steep down and up there. The valley behind the beach is called Yericho Valley, and a bit more inland you'll find the Blue Hills tin mine - the last place in Cornwall where still tin is produced. You can drive there by car also, but we were scared by the 33% incline sign!

    North of the town down the hill, there's a nice little beach, set between rocks. It's called Trevaunance Cove and once had a harbour from which you now don't see much as it was washed away in some storms. There are public toilets and lifeguard service, as well as a place at the beach where you can get some snacks. Also close to the beach is Driftwood Spars Hotel where we had a good lunch. The hotel used to be warehouse and fish cellars until was turned into a hotel in the 1930s.
