Green, blue, granite grey
The Tin Coast is jaw-droppingly beautiful, down every lane, every cliff face, every beach, every mile of moorland. Sensitive and breathtakingly gorgeous, we’re all privileged to share its past and present. And, with such a wealth of extraordinary flora and fauna, help us to absolutely keep it this way by refusing packaging, bringing your own reusable refillables and cleaning up after your pets. Thank you!
Walk, sit, talk, read, relax
But do it all outside. Breathe in the clean air. Get out of your car and start walking or cycling if you can; the way to experience this place is through your senses, not a car window. We can show you where you can hire bikes, find buses or discover sights, experiences and walks you wouldn’t find anywhere else on this ‘almost island’. Just ask us. Switch your senses on.
Stay local, eat local, buy local, see local
We make and grow more in this place than you can ever imagine. Art, music, beer and clothes; bread and fruit, festivals, rum and roses. Live like a local. Taste what we offer you; we love what we do, and love sharing it. Enjoy. You’re incredibly welcome.
We love talking with you. Slow down, turn your mind and phone off for a while.
Come and have a chat in our pubs, in our shops, on our paths and trails.
And slowing down includes on our roads and lanes too. There is always something unexpected round the corner – a stunning view, a random chicken, a wiggle in the lane, a sudden suspended mist that needs your headlights, a dreamy horse and its rider or a family on bikes. Go slow and revel in our place and its uncommonness.
Come be climate canny with us
We’re working hard to face the impact of climate change, and our role in it. So we can tell you how to see our imagination-defying wildlife, vast ocean, ancient landscape and rich history in a way that never damages. Switch off your worries, your devices and the light switch (you get to see the stars better that way).
Come and love this place. Be fully present. Honour its past, love its present,
preserve its future.
