Zennor and the Tinners Arms, Cornwall

Zennor and the Tinners Arms

Zennor lies above the high, rocky cliffs of the coast and the rugged, boulder-strewn, granite hills and moors. There used to be a stone quarry on Zennor Hill, and local granite was used to build much of St Ives and the Falmouth Harbour walls. This is a romantic, wild and brooding landscape which has been inhabited for at least 4000 years.

The Tinners Arms was built in 1271 to accommodate the masons who constructed St. Senara's Church which is famous for its mermaid. There is a lovely beer garden to laze in nursing a cold beer, or in the chillier months the fire inside the little changed Inn is lit for a cosy atmosphere.

You can get here easily by bus or it's a very pleasant walk on the coastal path (4hrs +). Walking boots and equipped rucksack recommended!
