Padstow, Tintagel (the legendary birthplace of King Arthur) Port Issac & Boscastle on the North coast and Fowey, St Austell (with the port of Charlestown), Looe, Polperro & Mevagissey to the South are excellent days out.St Benets is at the half-way point of the Saints Way, a medieval route taken by pilgrims on their way from Ireland to France which crosses from Padstow to Fowey making it an excellent two-day walk with a comfortable over-night stop at the abbey.Throughout the year we host a variety of special events and celebrations
