Just above Cadgwith Cove, the Trust has converted three barns of the former Inglewidden Farm into comfortable, single-storey holiday accommodation. The barns are built from the local serpentine stone, highly prized by the Victorians as an ornamental stone and so-called because its richly variegated colours were thought to resemble the skin of a snake, especially when wet. Set in their own tranquil grounds, with the coast path running past their doors and each with its own garden, in addition to Townplace Serpentine,Elm, Inglewidden Vean and Ruan provide an ideal base to explore Cadgwith and the surrounding coast.
A few minutes walk along the coast path takes you to the awesome Devil's Frying Pan - a large sea-cave whose collapsed roof has left its entrance forming a bridge to a bay which 'boils' during rough weather. Cadgwith itself - with its charismatic pub, cafe and shops - is a short walk down a delightful path, whilst the villages of Ruan Minor, Mullion and the Lizard are nearby.
