Penrose Estate is owned by the National Trust and there is a circular
walk all around Loe Pool and this is accessible from the site. (see
map below) Dogs are welcome in the Estate but must be kept on a
lead in front of Penrose House.
photos were taken around this walk. If you are feeling energetic
you can walk all around the Loe Pool (about 7 miles). It takes
me 3 hours to do the whole walk without stopping.
of the walks are tarmaced and some hard surface as shown.
Cyclists can cycle either into Helston which is approx 2 miles
through the "walks" or to Loe Bar approx 1 mile.
You can also cycle all around Loe Pool (7 miles).
Loe Bar. This great barrier of sand and flint has been formed
over centuries by the winter gales and fierce under currents
piling it up at the mouth of the Cober estuary.
lake behind the Bar is fresh water and forms the biggest stretch of
natural fresh water in Cornwall. The Lake is a haven for wild birds
and an ideal location for any bird enthusiasts.
