The Old Vicarage
At the Old Vicarage we offer residential riding holidays in a tranquil, stress free atmosphere all year round.
Set in an idyllic corner of the county, with many of Cornwall's prettiest coves and sandy beaches nearby, The Old Vicarage is an ideal place to stay to unwind and visit some of Cornwall’s greatest assets.
As an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a Heritage coastline, with great historical
interest, there is much to see and enjoy around The Old Vicarage.
This is an ideal area for surfing, coastal walking, golfing at one of the local courses, visiting one of the 100 major archaeological sites on the Lands End peninsula, bird watching, rambling, just generally exploring and of course horse riding.
Not to forget visits to local art galleries such as the New Tate Gallery in St Ives or a visit to a live performance at the world famous Minack Theatre - perched on the edge of a cliff face with dramatic views across Mounts Bay towards the Lizard Peninsula.
Other local amenities include coastal flights and day trips to the Isles of Scilly or even underground tours of the local Geevor Tin heritage and mine centre.
The towns of St. Ives, Penzance and Falmouth give ample opportunity for shopping or exploring their historic streets brimming with shops, cafés, restaurants and galleries.
There are many places of interest to enjoy from St. Michael's Mount, the Tate Gallery, the tin mining heritage around St. Just and Pendeen, Heligan Gardens, Trebah Gardens, the new National Maritime Museum at Falmouth and of course the ‘8th’ wonder of the world the Eden Project.
