Events Diary

VENN PARK is a working sheep farm, set between the A39 Atlantic Highway and the North Cornish coast, with its rugged cliffs, clear water and sandy beaches. There are extensive views across the sea as far as the island of Lundy and inland, Dartmoor is visible from the house, which is within an area of outstanding natural beauty.

Tintagel, with it's connections to the legend of King Arthur, Widemouth Bay and it's magnificent surfing beach, the popular seaside town of Bude and Bodmin Moor, ideal for walking - where you may well see a buzzard - are all within a short distance by road, as are many other attractions including horse-riding and golf.

Cycling opportunities vary from challenging, such as the coastal route towards Bude, moderately vigorous including a splendid route across Bodmin Moor or sedate and relaxing, along The Camel Trail, where arrangements can be made for bicycle hire at Wadebridge.

Step back in time with a narrow gauge steam train ride from the castle town of Launceston. Alternatively view the very latest green electrical energy projects at the Gaia Centre which is near to a working slate quarry and visitor centre at Delabole.

This is also a beautiful walking path, with magnificent views of the Camel estuary and maybe a ferry crossing to Rock and back from renowned Padstow. Investigation of the association of both Thomas Hardy and Daphne du Maurier, within the locality, can be fruitfully mounted from this base by those interested in their works.

For those keen to put travel aside during their stay, the natural beauty of our own land is free for you to stroll over and dally awhile as the mood takes you. While for those with a more energetic objective, participation to what ever extent desired, is available in both farming and environmental improvement tasks.

You will find yourself less than two miles from the pretty sandy beach cove of Crackington Haven, four miles from the picturesque harbour village of Boscastle from where sea fishing can be arranged and with easy walking access of the south-west coastal path.
