The West Country / Cornwall region
However you want to spend your leisure time while on holiday in Cornwall, the county pretty much has it covered (except maybe for skiing!). We have tourist attractions aplenty to suit all age groups from families to grandparents, and of every sort from stately homes and gardens to full throttle fun parks.
The activities in Cornwall can be as genteel as walking or bird watching to the extremes of kite surfing and coasteering. There is every type of event from the week long annual Boardmasters Surf Festival in Newquay to the latest rehang at the Tate St Ives, or a community event where you're welcome to join in, there should be no shortage of fun things to do while you're in Cornwall. In addition, from the river Camel north to Bude and on to Morwenstow are the highest cliffs in the West Country, it is a mixture of great cliffs and beaches. Walking (coast path) and bird-friendly cliffs (usually no road near): peregrines possible. Great sand/surf beaches at Polzeath, Trebarwith, Widemouth Bay, Bude and Sandy Mouth; sandy coves at Port Gaverne, Bossiney, Crackington Haven, Duckpool, and others less accessible; Rock, also sandy, is the place for watersports, including sailing on the Camel estuary; very fine golf course (St Enodoc); mini-fjords at Port Quin and Boscastle. Port Isaac is very pretty round its cliff-enclosed harbour. The well-worth-riding Camel Trail cycleway (bikes for hire) follows the river Camel from Bodmin Moor to Padstow. Pencarrow is a beautiful house with wonderful garden. Tintagel has a ruined castle on a wild headland. St Juliot Church was restored by Thomas Hardy. Bodmin Moor, its highest hills quite mountainous, is only a little way inland and Blisland, on its northern edge, is one of Cornwall's prettiest villages. Lanhydrock House and gardens is well worth a visit so to the Eden Project near St Austell.Get the full listing »
