This late Stone/early Bronze Age (2500-1500BC) stone circle is renowned for both its beauty and the stories connected to it. The Merry Maidens is one of the few 'true' stone circles in Cornwall, being perfectly circular; it comprises of nineteen stones. There are several standing stones in the nearby area, including two very large uprights known as the Pipers. All just a few minutes’ walk from the farm.
St Loy is perhaps best known for its wooded valley leading down to the coast. This is a beautiful walk any time of year, but is possibly at its best when bluebells carpet the floor in early Spring. It is at the bottom of this woodland walk that you will find the cove. It is a fairly wide bay between Boscawen and Merthen Points. There is nothing in the way of sand at the cove, the foreshore consists of fairly uniformly sized rounded rocks and boulders. This doesn't detract from the beauty of the spot and guarantees it is never busy.
Situated near Land’s End, just a short drive from the farm and only accessible by footpath, makes it a wonderfully peaceful place to take a walk, have a swim or sunbathe. The beautiful beach is surrounded by cliffs which contain numerous caves and is often visited by seals.
Ben's Cornish Kitchen, 25 minutes away at Marazion, is a very popular restaurant serving excellent food using fine local ingredients. The wine list has been put together with marked thoughtfulness so that it is easy to match food and wine. Service is knowledgeable, considerate and not intrusive.
Also at Mousehole with views to St. Clement's Isle, is The Old Coastguard, the sister hotel to the Gurnards Head.

Eat at scrubbed pine or oak tables on the Upper Deck and in the bar, or on the Sun Deck at sofas with just a pane of glass between you and the palm tree lined gardens. Or, best of all, eat on the terrace looking down at the sun-dappled sea.
