Celebrate the end of the season in style with our End of Summer Party at Land’s End. A pirate-themed extravaganza, we’ll get off the beaten track to explore smugglers’ coves and pirate haunts galore. We’ll uncover refreshing wild swimming spots and can arrange a spot of surfing.

On Saturday night we will go from pirate to posh, with ‘A Night at The Proms’ at the Minack Theatre’s spectacular cliff-side amphitheatre. Make sure to bring your flags, horns and whistles to help create the traditional Proms atmosphere.

On Sunday we will dine alfresco with a BBQ, before enjoying an adventure talk from a local adventurer. Depending on energy levels post-proms, we may venture out to explore the coastline by night.

All this is packed into a long weekend in the beautiful seaside town of Sennen, home to one of Cornwall’s best surf beaches, based out of our very own deluxe cliff-top lodge.
