Fine food and family fun
Head to Cornwall Gold and enjoy a day of food, fun and family frolics.
When you think of a hearty breakfast to start the day, the first thing that comes to mind may not be a trip to Cornwall Gold. And yet, tucked away just off the A30 between Redruth and Portreath is a real hidden gem.
“There’s a whole world of wonderful activities to discover to keep the whole family entertained.”
The Cornish Pantry, situated within 18 acres of beautiful grounds, serves a breakfast menu featuring all your early morning favourites, from bubble and squeak to its award-winning full Cornish breakfast, which comes presented on a tin miner’s shovel! All ingredients are sourced from within a 20-mile radius of the kitchen, so this truly is an authentic, local affair.
But don’t allow such novel presentation to fool you! Drawing on the site’s rich heritage, Cornwall Gold deserves recognition for being home to the last original tin mill in Europe – Tolgus Tin Mill. Steeped in history, Tolgus provides the tin that features in Cornwall Gold’s Tolgus Collection – a bespoke range of jewellery forged from tin combined with silver and gold, which you can admire and treat yourself to while on site. Proceeds from this fabulous jewellery allow the restoration of Tolgus Tin Mill to continue, ensuring this unique piece of Cornwall’s mining heritage is preserved for future generations to enjoy.
Of course, there is more to Cornwall Gold than food and jewellery. There’s a whole world of wonderful activities to discover to keep the whole family entertained. Pan for gold in Tolgus Stream; explore Tolgus Tin Mill; create your very own furry friend in The Bear Works and unleash your inner artist in The Create and Paint Pottery. Perhaps you’re brave enough to tackle the challenging crazy golf course?
Served everyday alongside other such traditional Cornish dishes including licky pie, pasties and clacky pork, The Cornish Pantry breakfast is the perfect way to set you and yours up for a day of fun at Cornwall Gold, so why not pop along one morning and start the day the way you mean to go on?
