CORNWALL’S BEST KEPT SECRET
In the heart of Cornwall’s tin mining landscape you and your family can find the perfect place to treat yourselves.
Set in 18 acres of beautiful grounds, the beauty and heritage of the Cornish land is the inspiration for everything we do. From the design of our jewellery, the addition of a touch of Tolgus tin to our unique collections, to the award-winning local food served in the Cornish Pantry restaurant, the unmissable visit of our very own Cornish heritage, Tolgus tin Mill, and the focus on families wanting to have fun on holiday – all in one place.
You can also explore the Tolgus Mill (free entry), Cornwall’s only remaining Victorian tin mill and be whisked back to the past in this unforgettable heritage site. For a number of years we have been regenerating the mill to once again produce tin, which we now combine with silver and gold to create unique pieces that will keep our proud Cornish heritage alive for generations.
There’s also a world of creativity for young families to enjoy at Cornwall Gold whatever the weather - make your own teddy bear or paint your own pottery. Plus, you can even enjoy panning for gold a FREE activity, undercover, that all ages will enjoy.
Rain or shine, this is the perfect place to treat yourself and your family.
NEW for 2023 – TOLGUS EXHIBITION

Months of research, unveiling treasures and discovering what it was really like to work at Tolgus 100 years ago, all in the name of passion for our Mill, Tolgus, and its sustainable regeneration.
