Place’s to See and Activities to Do

Why not escape on a fun filled day out and join us at The Old Quay House Inn before, during or after for some lunch, dinner or even just a drink?

Here are some fun and exciting ideas on activities to do and places to explore around the Hayle and St Ives area of Cornwall.

South West Coastal Path Walk

Start or end at The Old Quay House and enjoy a 4.5 mile walk from Lelant Salting to St Ives alongside the railway line looking over a panoramic view of Porthkidney Sands, Carbis Bay Beach and Porthminster Beach. In this enjoyable scenic adventure you will see golden sands and towans, turquoise waters and spectacular blue skies. Once you pass Carbis Bay Beach you will head through semi tropical gardens before reaching Porthminster Beach. This Coastal Path walk can be undertaken by families with children.

Paradise Park

Only a 5-10 minute drive from the Old Quay House is a wildlife sanctuary. This fun packed, exciting day out with the family and friends will keep the children as well as the adults entertained. Paradise Park offers a wide range of animals to see including, amusing red pandas, playful otters, donkeys and goats which you can feed, plus over 130 species of birds. Not only that, it has a fun filled jungle barn which has not one but three demon drops, spinning steps for older children and even the adults to enjoy as well as a soft play area for the toddlers.

Self Drive Boats and Water Sports

Enjoy the scenic coastal walk into St Ives town or the breath taking train ride from Lelant Saltings. Head into the picturesque harbour where you can experience a unique view of the St Ives coast line at your leisure from a self drive boat. Or if you prefer a faster more adrenaline fuelled ride, take a trip on the chartered rib boat. As well as the boats they also offer single and double kayaks and SUP’s (Stand Up Paddle boards) for hire to explore the turquoise waters of St Ives Bay to fill your day with fun.
