Located centrally in Cornwall yet benefiting from the beauty of South Cornwall's stunning coastline, there's plenty to explore from The Pier House Hotel in Cornwall. Visit one or many world-famous attractions, including The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan, discover Poldark Country, explore the South West Coast Path and more.

The Lost Gardens of Heligan

The Lost Gardens of Heligan, just a short drive away from The Pier House Hotel were only uncovered 25 years ago from a tangle of weeds. Heligan is now one of the country’s best loved gardens amongst families and single travellers and it's easy to see why, with 200 acres to explore, a sub-tropical jungle, plus an ancient woodland with rare breeds and an abundance of wildlife.

Poldark Country

The fishing port of Charlestown was a prime filming location for Poldark, so why not wander down from your hotel room to the grade II listed harbour and see if you can spot a Tall Ship, or gaze upon Charlestown's beautiful unspoiled cottages? Charlestown also has easy access to Bodmin Moor, which is featured in many of Poldark's more dramatic scenes as well as Bodmin Town, where Ross was tried.

The Eden Project

The Pier House Hotel is just a ten minute drive away from the Eden Project, a fascinating attraction with a tropical rainforest and Mediterranean garden housed within giant biomes. If you're an adrenaline junkie, get your fix on the Skywire, England's longest zip wire, or climb to the top of the biomes on the rainforest canopy walkway. The Eden Project offers a fun day out for the whole family, with events throughout the year and and plenty of things to keep curious minds interested.
