Cornish Mining World Heritage
There are a multitude of activities for you whilst holidaying at Lanyon Manor and we recommend that you explore Hayle, named after heyl, the Cornish word for estuary, this area is dominated by water: rivers, pools, sluicing ponds, quays, wharves, and, of course, the sea. Huge sand dunes lie between the town and the beautiful St Ives Bay, with the dark hills of the West Penwith Moors looming to the west.
Explore Hayle whilst walking in the most beautiful part of the world and discover more about the exciting history of this small port. For those feeling active jump on your bikes or hire them from Hayle Cycles. Follow The First & Last Trail, a popular route between Hayle & Land’s End. Cycle along the relatively level river valleys from Hayle towards the south coast at Marazion where the castle of St. Michael's Mount provides a beautiful back-drop.
Despite the decline of Hayle’s traditional industries, today’s lively communities buzz with the prospect of imminent regeneration. Here you’ll find plenty of signs of the town’s great past, along with beautiful beaches stretching out under vast skies.
