THE BEST THING ABOUT:

The coastal views from the roof terrace of this 18th century castle.


THE WALK TO THE BEACH?

Take the footpath direct from Acton Castle to the coast and coves, some 200 metres.


Where is it?

Situated in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by secluded, rocky coves, Acton Castle stands proud on the cliffs over Mount's Bay.

Prussia Cove is between St Michael's Mount, Marazion, and the Lizard Peninsula. The picturesque cove sits on the eastern flank of Cudden Point. The dramatic coastline of Prussia Cove is made-up of three smaller coves called Piskies, Bessy's and Kings. The smaller beaches of pale gold sand, sheltered by the cliffs, offer the perfect spot for rockpooling and bathing at low tide.

From Acton Castle, join the South West Coast Path east to Piskies Cove and Cudden Point; or walk west to the beach and village of Perranuthanoe, with seafront cafes and an excellent gastro pub.

Acton Castle:

Built in 1775 as a country house, Acton Castle offers commanding views over Mount's Bay. The now Grade II listed building, was created by John Stackhouse, an enthusiastic marine biologist. Stackhouse wanted a gentleman's retreat where he could carry out his botany. The scientist commissioned architect John Wood the Younger, who at the time, recently completed designs for the world famous Royal Crescent in Bath.

Cornwall's most famous real-life smuggler John Cater, The King of Prussia, is known to have rented a farm at Acton Castle, and for a time, was the building's caretaker. When Stackhouse was not at the property, Cater took advantage of the empty space and used it as a hideout. Old Cornish tales say that smuggler's tunnels run from the castle to the coast although they have never been found.
