Charming Cornwall

Long stretches of coastline, quaint fishing villages, rich history and an eclectic mix of old and new – holidays to Cornwall are abundant in beauty, awash with sweeping bays and countless beaches.

A county of outstanding natural beauty, this stunning holiday hotspot is also recognised for its unique culture and considerable history, as well as its friendly locals. Tucked away in the Southwest of England, Cornwall is the ideal place to take a break – whether you’re seeking adrenaline-pumping activities in Newquay, ancient Celtic heritage or a laid-back trip away to peaceful St Ives, packed full with things to do.

Stay on the South Coast Riviera

With such a diverse county, Cornwall holidays present a wealth of opportunity whatever you’re looking for. Romantic villages are scattered around the area, offering picturesque locations as well as a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city. The small mining town of Redruth is the ideal spot to discover the county’s rich history – follow the town trails that take in some spectacular architectural sites or take a bike and meander your way through old mining trails.

You won’t find many pirates in Penzance these days, but you will find a charming town that is a delight to stay in. From peaceful farms to cosy cottages, you’ll find a warm and inviting place to stay amid lush greenery. Alternatively, discover the picturesque seaside feel of Bude with its glorious beaches and wealth of water sports or visit some of Cornwall’s favourite family attractions.

Coastal Walks and Cultural Visits

Its beautiful landscapes and myriad of family-friendly attractions make holidays in Cornwall ideal for family breaks. Take advantage of your vast surroundings with long coastal walks or on rainy days, take your pick from great child-friendly attractions in the town of Falmouth – from aquariums and adventure parks to fascinating museums outlining the town’s maritime history.

Cornwall has one city, Truro, an attractive and thriving place in the heart of the county. This city provides plenty of attractions for those seeking the sights – from the Royal Cornwall Museum to the soaring Truro Cathedral and its three striking spires.

Among its many museums and cultural attractions, one must-visit on holidays to Cornwall is The Eden Project in St Austell. Hailed as the world’s largest rainforest in captivity, you’ll revel in the architectural wonder of these carefully-constructed domes, housing everything from rock concerts in summer to ice-skating in winter.

If your Cornwall holidays are all about sampling the deliciously mouth-watering flavours of this vibrant county, a trip to Padstow could be the answer. A dream destination for foodies, this idyllic fishing port is famed for its locally produced fare and traditional cuisine – from gourmet fish and chips to authentic Cornish cream tea. The nearby town of Wadebridge, with its endless cycle routes and walking trails, will give you chance to burn those excess calories off.
