Views from the top of Carn Brea are decent but it's definitely a walking hill and not suitable for running really. There are areas that are a bit neglected and a few horses escaped from the paddock nearby down the bottom. Alright way to spend...More

This place is absolutely lovely. It's such a unique place to eat. It's a little difficult to find and then the drive up to the castle is a little narrow and bumpy but well worth it when you arrive. We were greeted by a lovely...More

Carn Brea is visible for miles around in the Camborne-Redruth part of Cornwall. You have to be an intrepid driver to tackle the lumpy bumpy twisty windy farm track road to the summit but when you get there.....it is so worth it. The approach road...More
