Local Area

Higher Kestle is ideally situated for exploring Cornwall’s beautiful South Coast and further afield. The south coast is noted for its picturesque fishing villages, gardens and stunning scenery. Just a mile away is the famous Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project is only a 20 minute drive away. There are many National Trust gardens to visit including Trelissick, perched at the head of the Fal Estuary, reachable by ferry. We will be happy to assist you with directions to any of these lovely places.

You can stop by Lobbs Farm Shop to stock up on local produce for your picnic or barbecue. Run by our family and staff, we pride ourselves in producing a wide range of beef and lamb straight from our own farm. You’ll find it just next door to Heligan. You can reach both Lobbs Farm Shop and Heligan by taking our tranquil woodland walk. You can find more details of this walk on the farm shop blog.

The nearby fishing village of Mevagissey has a selection of restaurants, pubs and small gift shops.
