Heamoor itself is approximately one quarter of a mile from Boscrowan and has some useful amenities for guests including a very well stocked licensed Costcutter supermarket, a pub, a fish and chip shop, a baker and a post office.

The town is also well served with two major supermarkets. Set in the sheltered corner of St. Mount’s Bay the area is dominated by the historic St. Michael’s Mount and it offers one of the most temperate climates in the UK. The restored art deco Jubilee Pool (pictured, right) located between the promenade and harbour is the UK’s largest open air seawater lido and is a wonderful safe place to relax against a stunning backdrop.

There are many fine beaches on the doorstep including Sennen Cove renowned for its surf and the unspoilt beaches at Porthcurno and Praa Sands. Penzance is also ideally situated for Truro and Falmouth and The Eden Project is less than an hours drive away. Both Penzance and nearby Newlyn have a thriving arts scene with several art galleries.
