History.

Vineries – lawn.

The Land’s End Vineries is located on the site of a Victorian-era horticulture business which supplied the local area and other parts of the United Kingdom with tomatoes, lettuce, grapes, soft fruit and other produce.  Local legend even says that grapes were sent from here to Queen Victoria herself!  Some of the original family moved to America and set up in agriculture there.

In more recent times, the site was re-developed as a Cafe and Bed & Breakfast.  After that the bungalows were built, starting in the 1960s and completing in the 1990s.  If you look carefully, however, you can still see the remains of the walls of the old glasshouses in the grounds.

Today, we have bungalows available for self-catering holidays, together with a some for long-term accommodation.

We find the mix of accommodation types keeps the place ‘alive’ during the quieter times of year and the people who visit for holidays have a more ‘small village’ atmosphere to stay in.
