About the location

MOUNT HAWKE

Porthtowan 2 miles ; St Agnes 2.5 miles ; Truro 7.5 miles

Mount Hawke is a small village just outside St Agnes and Porthtowan on the north Cornish coast. Once heavily involved in the local copper mining industry, today Mount Hawke is quiet and mainly residential. There is a church which is dedicated to St John the Baptist, and a very good gastro pub – The Old School Bar & Kitchen – which is, as the name suggests, in a restored, traditional school building. There is also a Post Office, a couple of shops, a primary school, village park and Cornwall’s largest indoor skate park. Porthtowan beach is a pleasant walk from the village, through woodland and a pretty valley, and St Agnes Beacon and the coastal footpath are also within easy reach. Kayak hire and tours are available at St Agnes, as are surf lessons. There are also riding stables at nearby Goonbell, which offer countryside hacks and treks as well as pub hacks, summer picnic rides and children’s Pony Days.

Note: Low lintel (5’4”) to steep open tread stairs (top stairgate) up to landing (5’5” lintel)
