Moor Magy is tucked away down a peaceful lane in the wilds of west Cornwall, there is a large, south facing, conservatory that soaks up the sun through the day. Inside this welcoming cottage is full of quirky fun, figureheads sculpted by the owners father, a suspended kitchen table dangling on heavy chains and plenty of reclaimed hard wood doors and furniture. The comfortable living room has a wood burning stove to warm up those bleak winter evenings, there are rural views everywhere, silence, and with virtually no light pollution the stars at night are incredible.

On the south coast, Lamorna Cove, the golden sands at Porthcurno and the Minack Theatre are all well worth a visit. Carn Euny is very close, and across this stretch of Cornwall there are plenty of neolithic attractions, stone circles, the Men an Tol stone ring is a must-see and a lovely walk.

Brane is a small hamlet most notable for Carn Euny which is an archeological site where there is one of the best preserved Iron Age villages in Cornwall with round houses and underground stone walled passages known as Fogou's, the village was inhabited from the Iron Age to the end of the Roman occupation, approx 400BC - 400AD. As Cornwall is so narrow, this location gives excellent access to everywhere, from Lands End, Sennen, Cape Cornwall, Porthcurno, Mousehole, St Michaels Mount and the Minack Theatre to name a few!
Mousehole is a picturesque fishing village on the south coast of Cornwall between Penzance and Land's End, that has retained much of its old world charm. The narrow streets are filled with galleries, small shops and restaurants. Local cottages built from Lamorna granite, cluster together around the inner edge of the harbour, these are protected from the force of the sea by two robust breakwaters. Car parking in the village is extremely limited due to the narrow roads and visitors are encouraged to park on the outskirts of the village. The tiny village was overcome by the loss of the Penlee lifeboat, the Solomon Brown, just before Christmas 1981. Most of the crew was from Mousehole. On the anniversary of the Penlee Lifeboat tragedy, the Christmas Lights are turned off for one hour as a mark of respect for the crew who died whilst trying to rescue those on the Union Star off Lamorna.
The Mousehole Christmas lights are famous throughout Cornwall and are well worth visiting. Just offshore from the harbour is St Clement's Isle, a small group of rocks where an ancient hermit was said to have lived. A few hundred yards along the coast from the village is a huge cave, which is believed to give rise to the village’s unusual name. This is unlikely but the origin of the name is still a mystery. It is possible to walk west along the Coastal Path to Lamorna Cove, looking down on Tater Du Light on the way. To the east is Newlyn, the largest fishing port in the South West.
Penzance is just a 10 minute drive away. Every June, Penzance holds the Golowan (Feast of St John) & Mazey Day celebrations. This week long celebration attracts many visitors and traffic is banished from the centre of Penzance during Mazey Day when the streets become lined with stalls and hold colourful processions. From Penzance harbour you can catch a ferry to the Isles of Scilly. The sub tropical gardens of Morrab are definitely worth visiting.
St Ives (Cornish: Porth Ia) lies north of Penzance and west of Camborne on the coast of the Celtic Sea. In former times it was commercially dependent on fishing but has become renowned for its number of artists. The Tate St Ives exhibits work by modern British artists, including work of the St Ives School. The three storey building lies on the site of an old gas works, overlooking Porthmeor Beach. The Tate also manages the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. The St Ives September Festival, runs annually and is one of the longest running and widest ranging Festivals of the Arts in the UK. It last 15 days and includes a range of arts from music to poetry, film, talks and books. St Ives harbour is still a working port where you can watch the local fishermen landing their daily fresh catches of locally caught seafood. It is very sheltered and a perfect sun-trap in the heart of the town. Porthmeor beach has fine golden sand and is a wonderful beach for surfing with a surf school. During the summer trained lifeguards ensure the bathing is as safe as possible. There are restaurant and cafe facilities right on the beach with toilets and beach huts on the terrace behind.

We had a wonderful week at moor magy. The characterful cottage was well equipped with all you could need. There was a delightful welcome with a cream tea and even fresh milk in the fridge. The location was so peaceful, but just a short drive to beautiful beaches at sennen cove and porthcurno, with lands end and the minack theatre close by. Penzance also just a few minutes away for supermarkets and restaurants. The owner who lived next door was so friendly and the children loved playing with the dog and seeing the horses. The only slight challenge to be aware of is single track lanes leading to the property but nothing out of the usual for this area.
