They both boast fine pubs, decent playgrounds, and well-equipped village shops selling local produce, as well as essentials. For a good walk, there is the Kennall Valley nature reserve with the remnants of a bygone gunpowder factory with the Kennall river cascading down the valley through leats and over the remnants of a series of waterwheels all dappled by sunshine flickering through the woodland - this is one of the most beautiful and well guarded secret beauty spots in the county.

The Dynamite Valley Brewery at the bottom of the valley (less than a five-minute walk) boasting local brews and even a beer cafe for a sundowner...

Falmouth is one of Cornwall's most popular places to visit because of its unique mix of attractions, water sports, beaches, history and places to eat. Falmouth has a buzzing town centre filled with shops, restaurants and waterside attractions and is the sailing capital of Cornwall. It is renowned for being the third-largest natural harbour in the world. It’s a haven for both cruisers and racers, offering the sailor the last major port before the 12-hour crossing to the Isles of Scilly. Visitors to the Port will find the town teeming with coastal treasures, ranging from fish restaurants and boat trips to The National Maritime Museum, next to Port Pendennis. Henry VIII built Pendennis Castle in the 16th Century and it sits high above the harbour with truly magical panoramic views across the bay. You can ride one of the Fal River Link Ferries to the beautiful St Mawes and visit Pendennis' sister castle, or take a delightful trip around the estuary, stopping off at either Trelissick Gardens, Malpas or Truro. Falmouth Regatta Week is the town's major event both on and off the water; fireworks and sometimes the Red Arrows provides a spectacular backdrop for some high-class racing. Later in the year, the Oyster Festival shows off the river’s heritage to the full. Falmouth also hosts the annual Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival. There are plenty of places to eat and drink in Falmouth.

A short drive away is the Helford River. This delightful part of Cornwall includes places such as Mawnan Smith, HelfordPassage, Constantine & Gweek. The area has many delights such as Trebah and Glendurgan Gardens, The Seal Sanctuary at Gweek, Goonhilly Earth and Satellite Station and The Ferry Boat Inn. Daphne du Maurier wrote her only romantic novel Frenchmans Creek about the River Helford, and who can blame her, the views really are beautiful. GlendurganGardens, run by the National Trust, hold a 176-year-old laurel maze and the 'Giants Stride' swing is very popular with children. St Anthony-in-Meneage holds a lovely little church primarily of medieval architecture. Maenporth beach, tucked away on the westerly edge of Falmouth Bay and boasting spectacular views, is well worth a visit.

Porthtowan, Portreath and St Agnes are with a 25-minute drive.
Porthtowan beach is famous for its excellent surf and acres of glorious sand. Porthtowan (meaning cove of dunes) has some of the best surf in the UK. However, it is sometimes not for the faint-hearted and beginners should be careful. There is an excellent surf school that can assist and operates from the beach. The Blue Bar is situated on the beach's edge and provides great food and drink in a beach bar with an unparalleled location. The Victory Inn at Towan Cross is a genuine 17th-century Cornish clifftop pub with a great menu and lively atmosphere.
Portreath (meaning cove of sand) is a delightful village that extends both sides of a valley leading down into a little harbour and beach. West of the harbour entrance are two more beaches with golden sands popular with holidaymakers and surfers alike.
St Agnes is a popular and picturesque, north coast village just 9 miles from Truro and 5 miles from Redruth. The village itself was originally based on tin, copper, and arsenic mining, which started in prehistoric times and continued until the 20th century. Other local industries are farming and fishing, but more recently, tourism has risen to the fore. Several attempts to build a harbour in St Agnes, the most recent, succumbed to a storm in 1915-16. However, the glorious sandy beaches more than compensate. The village offers many restaurants, pubs, cafes and takeaways (Pizza, Chinese, Indian, Fish & Chips etc.) There are also plenty of small galleries as well as a free museum on the outskirts. The village also has a supermarket, butchers, post office, bank, bakers, chemist, fruit and veg, florist, and some excellent gift shops. It is also a walkers heaven, being perfectly situated for exploring the coastal paths, the captivating history and the beautiful nearby beaches of Trevaunance Cove and Trevellas Porth at St Agnes, Chapel Porth, and Perranporth. St Agnes Beacon is a 328-foot climb, and on a fine day, you can see from coast to coast. The view is spectacular and well worth the climb.

The Cathedral City of Truro is in the heart of Cornwall and offers a wealth of facilities for the visitor. Dominated by the stunning cathedral, it is one of the southwest's most attractive cities. Lemon Quay plays host to many events throughout the year, including the Cornwall Food & Drink Festival in the Autumn and the famous Truro Fatstock Show just before Christmas. Regular farmers markets occur every Wednesdays & Saturday and there are also arts & craft markets on Saturdays. There is a wonderful range of shopping for the visitor including all the regular high street stores including Marks & Spencer, Tescos & Sainsburys, and a wide range of more specialist stores. It really is worth a wander through the back streets and alleys to find some fabulous little boutiques. Truro has a superb range of restaurants from BustopherJones & Mannings on Lemon Street to the always popular Pizza Express. There are lively bars, pubs & nightclubs, including the superb Old Ale House! The Hall for Cornwall hosts everything from Shakespeare to rock concerts and the cinema on Lemon Street has all the latest releases.
