It’s your holiday, so you’re entitled to put your feet up and enjoy lazy days chilling out on the sofa or sundeck. However, few can resist the lure of the Cornish coastland. A gentle stroll along local beaches will whet the appetite for walking along the coastal paths - some of the most scenic in the world.
Pleasure seekers can enjoy top class golf courses, or a host of water sports including some of the best surfing and extreme sport beaches in Europe, as well as sea fishing, coarse or fly fishing. Sailing is available for all skill levels on the coast and lakes, otherwise boat trips will afford you an alternate view of the coast from the water. Cyclists are well catered for from family outings on bikes, to rugged off-road mountain biking, and horse riding is also on offer for all skill levels. There are several National Trust properties to discover and The Eden Project and The Lost Gardens of Heligan are all within easy reach.
From Valleybrook you can explore the dramatic landscapes of Bodmin Moor, the unspoilt natural harbour at Fowey and the picture-book fishing villages of Looe and Polperro - all designated Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Then sample our excellent sea food in local restaurants, or head to a ‘gastro-pub’ for some hearty grub, washed down with a satisfying pint of locally brewed ale. While you wait for your food to digest you can check the local papers for upcoming events that offer plenty of fun for all the family. With so many towns and villages, there is usually something going on every week of the year. If that’s not enough there is always the option of indulging in a spot of shopping, and Cornwall can offer a myriad of small independent shops and boutiques as well as the bigger high street names to satisfy any shopaholic. As well as clothing and footwear, you can purchase jewellery, delicious local produce, original works of art or sculpture and antique bargains. A trip to Cornwall with the family or a good bunch of friends is the perfect way to have some serious fun and totally recharge, whatever the time of year.
