En route pass by tiny thatched-roofed houses, old tin and silver mining towns and through East Newlyn which was once one of these thriving mining villages. You'll will also pass Terice, an Elizabethan manor house and a great stop for a Cornish cream. With only a short ride today there is plenty of time, to explore the coastal town and beach of Newquay.
