St Agnes 5 miles; Truro 5 miles.
Midway between the sea at St Agnes and the historic city of Truro, the tiny hamlet of Wheal Busy near Chacewater is surrounded by peaceful countryside. Once a thriving tin mine, the reminders of Wheal Busy's industrial heritage are plain to see. All the mine cottages are now lovely homes but several mine buildings still stand among the fields and trees. The magical beachside village of St Agnes is a mere 5 miles away and for those who love riding the waves, the surfing resort of Perranporth is just 2 miles further up the coastal path. 11 miles to the west along this rugged shoreline lies St Ives and the land of Celtic myth and legend that is the Land's End peninsula. For those seeking a gentler day out, the cobbled streets of the cathedral city of Truro, with its shops, theatre, museums and restaurants, are a mere 5 miles away while a little further on is the winding river system of wooded creeks and inlets surrounded by renowned gardens, secluded beaches and pretty waterside villages.
