The Penrose estate has been cared for by the National Trust since 1974, thanks to public support from many people including our members, visitors and team of volunteers.   With 17 miles of footpaths and bridleways to walk, pedal and ride, acres to explore, a bunkhouse for those group stays and a weekly parkrun, there is plenty to do all year round.   If you would like to support the National Trust’s work looking after the Penrose estate you can support their current coast path project, become a member or donate.  Find out more from www.nationaltrust.org.uk/penrose, www.nationaltrust.org.uk/activecornwall
