Things have changed a lot in the last year! Many of the things we used to do at Coast are no-longer possible. We are currently sourcing recycllng bins to be located at the front of the building so our guests can use them as they leave. We provide biodigradable bags for rubbish to be bagged up and put in the rubbish bins outside on your departure.  Behind the scenes we do  our very best to do our little bit for the environment.  If you are out and about please bring any rubbish back with you and put in the bins to the front of the building. If you are interested, we can provide information on local green activities, nature reserves, bicycle hire, cycle trails, wildlife tours etc.

On your doorstep: Steeple Wood Nature Reserve: Designated a local nature reserve in 2002, Steeple Woods has three different areas to explore. Steeple Lane, a mature woodland of beach and oak, Trelyon Downs, a mixture of mature tree species and Knill's Monument, an area of open heathland. It is a lovely place to walk and picnic, with magnificant views of St Ives and Godrevey Lighthouse.

The south west coast path: Perfect for enjoying wildlife.You will encounter different habitats and pass through woodland, scrub, heath, grassland, sand dunes, shingle ridges, estuaries, salt marsh and rocky shores. All these habitats are precious to Cornwall, some are protected by the National Trust or the Cornwall Wildlife Trust.

Marine Environment: Cornwall's marine environment has so much to offer. Do support the marine wildlife code of conduct and avoid disturbance of marine life. Keep beaches clean and safe but have fun and enjoy. Amongst the wildlife hightlights to be found locally are whales, dolphins, choughs, seals and basking sharks.
