Adrenalin Quarry

JUMP OFF A CLIFF:The Zip at Adrenalin Quarry in South East Cornwall, is the UK’s maddest ever zip wire. Long, high, fast. Twin wires cross the flooded depths of the old quarry, sheer cliffs rise on either side.The Zip is the only place in the UK where you can just turn up and jump. NO NEED TO BOOK! No fuss, no pre-booking, no hours of waiting around – we throw you off our cliff within minutes of arrival. We're easy to find, just off the A38 main road. THE GIANT SWING: IT WILL LEAVE YOU SPEECHLESS. Perched at the top of our cliffs, The Giant Swing hangs 50ft off the ground, 150ft over water. You’re hoisted to 80° then plunged 3-at-a-time over the lake. Just when you think there’s no turning back, you pull out of the dive and experience zero gravity, before doing it all again – backwards. First reactions (after recovery time): ‘I was floating on air for 20 minutes afterwards.’ ‘The most amazing thing I’ve ever done.’ ‘Awesome!’ ‘Someone’s gonna pay for this!’. ‘I want to go home now’.No need to book this either! Suitable for all ages 5 - 96 JUMP RIGHT OFF THE CLIFFS INTO OUR LAKE! COASTEERING with THE BLOB at Adrenalin Quarry is unique. Check out our videos and snaps on facebook. We’re the first coasteering venue where the action’s all Freshwater and children aged 10 or more can join in. We’re the only coasteering venue in the world where you feel like you’re on the set of Jurassic Park.Go wild swimming, traverse rockfaces, climb sheer cliffs then jump no-strings-attached into the lake. There’s always a safety boat on the water and BCF/SLSGB-qualified coasteering instructors guide you all the way. We’re also fully AALA registered. All this plus free entry, amazing views, bring your picnic and watch all the action from the viewing decks or down by the lake. Pets on leads are welcome, we're easy to find right by the A238 main road.

As someone who doesn't have a fear of heights or drops etc etc this doesn't really hold much interest for me. Did it as a family and booked a cheaper early deal. Got up early so we could get there for 9am for our booked slide only to find they don't open until 10. Luckily the nice people at the kart track let the kids and ladies use their loos, when staff arrived and were questioned we were told it's an admin error and they know it happens. Question is why they don't email those booked early and tell them, was with family so held tongue and walked away but I was fuming at their attitude. When I'm on holiday what I really want is an hour and a half hanging about in an empty car park . Some other activities here but main area is a complete bog if it's been at all wet.

Hurlers Stone Circles

Said to have been hurled by an angry God in response to violation of His Sabbath day, these three large stone circles are built close together and vary in size from 105 feet to 135 feet across.

Reviewed By Tony G - Cricklade, United Kingdom

Worth a visit if you are in this part of Cornwall. Free car park on outskirts of Minions. Can get busy at holiday time. Atmospheric place on southern edge of Bodmin Moor. Stout footwear recommended. Best in fine weather. Can easily be combined with a further walk to the Cheesewring on nearby Stowes Hill.

Golitha Falls

Reviewed By HellyWelly93 - Kingston-upon-Hull, United Kingdom

This is a nice and easy little walk. There is a car park ideally located nearby, with a small café. The route to the falls is a bit confusing, and there aren’t really any signposts. You just have to pick your way through the tree routes. A couple of times we had to retrace our steps due to finding ourselves stuck on the wrong side of the river! There were lots of little Waterfalls. The route itself barely reached the Waterfalls, before it appeared to stop. Maybe there is a way to continue to walk along the river, we just didn’t find it!

Looe to Polperro walk

A 5.4 mile moderate coastal walk along the South West Coast Path taking in a holy legend, a 6th century monastery, an 18th century eccentric and a 19th century engineer. There are rockpools on the Beaches, remnants of shipwrecks, tales of Smugglers, and the walk ends with a stroll up through the picturesque fishing village of Polperro to Crumplehorn, where you can catch a bus back to Looe.

Reviewed By John W - Kingsville, Australia

Visiting a friend in Looe we decided to do the walk to Polperro, it as beautiful....thoroughly enjoyed it! Took us about an hour and half some parts were quite steep but then other was leisurely and on a gorgeous sunny day....what a walk it was! The ascent into Polperro was glorious taking in the views of this quaint little fishing village and then a wonderful lunch at a local pub. Definitely do this walk if in the area...it is fabulous!Q

St Lalluwy and St Antonius parish Church

Reviewed By Jannerbloke - Devon

Not being a member of the established church I have only been here for a couple of family weddings and maybe half a dozen funerals maybe spread over thirty years. I like the feel of this space. Unpretentious, well maintained, easy going and with some significant historical interest inside and out. Someone, presumably the council have recently carried out some repaving and tweaking of the nearest part of the old village square outside, which may have been less sympathetic or successful. If you are in menheniot it is worth taking a look at the church and a stroll through the yard.

Looe Valley Line

The scenic Looe Valley Line links the bustling market town of Liskeard with the picturesque fishing port of Looe. The train journey is full of beautiful views out of the train window, as the wooded valley teaming with wildlife opens up to glorious estuary views as the river meets the sea. Looe itself is a much-loved seaside destination that’s full of character. It prides itself on its safe Beaches for swimming and sunbathing, restaurants that specialise in fresh local ingredients, and a maze of narrow streets full of small independent shops to discover.

Lovely little train ride from Liskeard to Looe and back. Looe is a great little seaside town to explore lovely little tea shops and restaurants all within walking distance from the station there is a lovely sandy beach with plenty of rocks for children young and old to climb over all so a great pub opposite the station for that well earned pint when waiting for the train home
