Visit Probus and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Probus, Cornwall, has, it is generally agreed, the county's finest tower; beautifully carved yet streamlined, seeming French in the elaborate carving which yet avoids over-ornate effect; attractively green-coloured by lichen; 125 ft high. It was built between c. 1523 and c. 1560; the granite for it is said to have been carried by the villagers from quarries near St Stephens, about 5 miles North East.
Trewithen, a 17th century and Georgian house about 1½ miles East, has famous gardens.
At Tresillian Bridge, about 1¼ miles West, Cornish Royalist resistance ended with surrender to Fairfax in 1646.
