The impressive St Anthonys Lighthouse is just down the road and well worth a visit. Built in 1835, it can be seen all the way down to the Lizard Peninsula. The Lighthouse was featured on the 1980’s children’s program Fraggle Rock and is sure to bring back childhood memories! A short walk down the hill is Place Manor House. Once a priory and hiding the beautiful St Anthony parish church in it’s back garden, this is house has been in the same family for 400 years. You can walk around the whole of St Anthony Headland in just a few hours.

In reaching Bohortha by car you will drive through Gerrans & Portscatho, two conjoined villages on the coast. Portscatho has plenty of shops and pubs to choose from.
