One of the major benefits of Seaview House is that there is so much to do nearby. This page is a guide to some of the best facilities, attractions, and places. Please check out the links provided for plenty more information. When you get to Seaview House the coffee table in the living room contains lots of useful leaflets about great places nearby.

Seaview House is situated in Long Rock, a small village just 5 minutes drive from Penzance.



One of the most famous places in Cornwall is the Eden Project. From Seaview it is just under an hour away and well worth a daytrip. It is an amazing experience to be enjoyed by all the family, green-fingered or not!!

There are buses to the Eden Project which run regularly from St. Austell, and St. Austell is easily accessible via public transport. However if you prefer to make your own way, you’ll find Eden Project located to the east of St. Austell, sign-posted from the A30, A390, and A391.

On the left of this page are links to maps of the area, and to bus and train timetables. The bus stop is located directly outside the local shop. Buses that travel between Long Rock and Penzance are 2a, 2c, 17, 18, 32, to name a few, and the main bus station in Penzance is located directly next to the train station. So getting around should be as easy as if you were at home!

There are plenty of other theme parks and such like places to visit nearby, see the links to find out more about places such as Flambards, St. Michaels Mount, and Newquay Zoo. There is something for everyone to do, whether the Sun is shining or not. There are also plenty of towns and villages that are interesting to visit for their buildings, shops and the Celtic history. We recommend a visit to St. Ives for surfing, swimming, shopping and a look around the abundance of craft shops and art galleries. St. Ives is just over 6 miles away (10km), go to Map Quest for directions.
