St. Ladoca Church - Ladock Cathedral at Truro Dartmoor St Ives


"One of the early routes into West Cornwall passed through the beautiful wooded Ladock Valley, and the road was surfaced with Cornish greenstone in the last century. Ladock's Falmouth Arms was one of a series of coaching inns along the way, where horses could be changed. Local folk who could afford a shilling, could take the "Inkerman" van to Truro on market day. The rather uncomfortable seven mile journey took two hours each way."

Ladock is perfectly situated for visiting the whole of Cornwall, being within easy reach of the magnificent Eden Project, and many beautiful gardens including Trelissick and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
There are some lovely walks to take in and around the village of Ladock itself (feel free to borrow our OS maps). Visit our charming local church which dates from the Norman times and which boasts a beautiful William Morris stained glass window.

For evening meals, there is a pub within a few yards where you can sample some of Cornwalls fine ales such as Tribute and there's an excellent selection of pubs and restaurants in nearby villages and the cathedral city of Truro is just 7 miles away.
