After negotiating very narrow and too long drive from the village of Trewellard you get to the car park surrounded with rather dramatic landscape, which is a mixture of cliffs sharply falling to the Atlantic with remains of multipurpose buildings littering open fields up to the horizon. The main building with the ticket office (National Trust) is right below the car park, from there you can reach the biggest attraction of this place, which is a working steam engine. But it is working only on certain occasions, which are rather rare. Usually you are left to wonder around small industrial site, with amazing ocean views. I agree this place can be really boring for people not interested in Cornwall's industrial past, but you can always skip the ticketed part and just go for a seaside walk.
