Inns And Outs


Good news and bad news. The good news is that there is a pub in the vicinity. The bad news is that it's not immediately obvious where!

Like a high court judge, you've got to have the courage of your convictions. The path from Zennor to Gurnard's Head 16
Once you crest the rise you can get a glimpse of your objective. The path from Zennor to Gurnard's Head 17
You'll have to negotiate some stiles ..... The path from Zennor to Gurnard's Head 18

Eventually you should come to this stile ..... The path from Zennor to Gurnard's Head 20
..... which leads you onto this road, at the end of which lurks the Gurnard's Head Inn. The path from Zennor to Gurnard's Head 21
If you're coming from the other direction, this is the road you head down ..... The path from Zennor to Gurnard's Head 22
..... and this is the stile you need to negotiate to get to the path down to the head. It wasn't exactly easy to spot when I was heading back even though I'd come through it the other way. The path from Zennor to Gurnard's Head 23

At the end of the road you will come out onto the St. Ives to Land's End road right next to the Gurnard's Head Inn (which was nice!).

Should you be interested, this is the spot (right by the pub) where you can take the more direct field path to Zennor.

But we don't want to give you that .....
