Amazing ride with stunning scenery!

Fantastic bus ride through stunning scenery! A great treat after walking a portion of the SW Coast Path. I cannot recommend this route enough for the views alone, and even better it is included in the Cornwall day pass (just £5 for unlimited bus travel throughout Cornwall for a day). This is an amazing route!

Weather bad, trip great

We caught the 10.30 from Penzance and stayed on for the round trip. Driver, views and everything was great. An added bonus was we could use our freedom passes. Thank you

Great views from the top deck

I used this bus to walk sections of the coast path last year. It was brilliant and with a day rover ticket I could catch other buses, on a range of routes, back to St Ives or Penzance. I managed to walk all the way from Hayle to St Michael’s Mount this way (over a few months). Then back across country, St Michaels Mount to Lelant on the St Michaels Way.

Great for walking the coast path

I’ve used the Atlantic Coaster several times whilst walking on the South West coast path. Its fantastic for enabling linear walks back to your car. The route through small villages and past little coves is an absolute delight on a sunny day.

Sheffield is a hamlet in Cornwall, England, situated near the village of Paul.

Sheffield, Cornwall is thought to have been established to house the workers of the Sheffield Quarry and later the surrounding farms. The settlement was built along the road into Penzance where the quarry’s stone had to be carted for shipment.

After the 1830 Beerhouse Act, a kiddlywink (or kiddle-e-wink), which is an old name for a Cornish beer shop or beer house, was thought to have been set up in what is now No. 2 Lower Sheffield and a paraffin store constructed next door (now No. 1). Kiddlywinks were reputed to be the haunts of smugglers and often had an unmarked bottle of spirits under the counter, however farm and quarry labourers were also known to receive beer instead of wages.

Deep within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the village has a popular pub, The Logan Rock Inn, a village shop, cafe and campsite with views to both Logan Rock and nearby Porthcurno.

Treen overlooks the Penberth Valley and sits about a kilometre inland from Treryn Dinas, an Iron Age promontory fort, or cliff castle.

People have occupied the impressive rocky promontory at Treryn Dinas since early prehistoric times. Flint tools have been found dating back to the Mesolithic, or Middle Stone Age, period. The local eighteenth-century antiquarian William Borlase mentions a Neolithic stone circle, although there is little to be seen of it now. The ramparts and ditches of the Iron Age promontory fort are visible, however, defending the landward part of the headland, as are the remains of stone houses within. Coins and a copper brooch from Roman times have also been found here..

At the end of the promontory is the famous Logan Rock, or rocking stone.
