Places to see, things to do

Penberth valley is three miles from Lands End and is surrounded by natural beauty. Much of the coast and valley is owned by the National Trust. The coastal path takes you through beautiful scenery to other coves such as Porthcurno, Lamorna and Porth Chapel. The famous 'Logan Rock' is within walking distance across an Iron Age Fort 'Treryn Dinas' and if you are fit, you can climb to rock this 80 ton rock!
