Our View

In the medieval period, holy wells were held in high regard, and this pretty stone-built well-house standing over an ancient stream is a good example. It was believed to cure whooping cough when sufferers were immersed in the pool, and was built by the Augustinian canons of St Germans Priory in around 1500. Entry is free.

About the area

Discover Cornwall & Isles of Scilly

Cornwall has just about everything – wild moorland landscapes, glorious river valley scenery, picturesque villages and miles of breathtaking coastline. With more than 80 surfing spots, there are plenty of sporting enthusiasts who also make their way here to enjoy wave-surfing, kite surfing and blokarting.

In recent years, new or restored visitor attractions have attracted even more visitors to the region; the Eden Project is famous for its giant geodesic domes housing exotic plants from different parts of the globe, while nearby the Lost Gardens of Heligan has impressive kitchen gardens and a wildlife hide.
