And with plenty of mouth-watering local restaurants and delicious produce, from fine dining to laid back coffee shops, you certainly won’t go hungry.  Take a look at our Cornwall bucket list for more adventure inspiration. 

If you’re looking to bring your dog on holiday, Cornwall is a dog’s paradise. With long stretches of golden sands, endless coast path to explore and water to splash in, plus plenty of dog friendly cottages and places to eat, you can feel comfortable knowing your dog will be welcomed here.

The South Coast

Ah, the beautiful South Coast. A Cornwall holiday home on the South Coast is the perfect place for safe, family friendly beaches in Mevagissey, Falmouth, Looe and St Mawes. Venture to the Eden Project for a day of fascinating information. Head to the Roseland peninsula for rolling countryside, pretty villages lined with Cornish cottages and quiet spots to sit and ponder the view.

Continue south to the Lizard peninsula for treasure troves of hidden coves dotted with fishermen’s cottages reflecting in turquoise seas. Head around the headland up past Porthleven (you’ll recognise it from the storm watching photos) to Mount’s Bay, where majestic St Michael’s Mount looms over the town of Marazion and Penzance further along. The panorama of aquamarine seas around Sennen, Porthcurno and St Ives is interspersed with its mining heritage, chimneys clinging to every cliff top and tiny streets crammed with the cottages Cornwall is known for.

The North Coast

Travel the north coast, spreading out from the centres of Newquay, Mawgan Porth and Bude where the beaches are bustling with surfers and every other water craft you can imagine. If you're not a water baby, head inland for landscapes that are out of this world. Sit atop a tor on Bodmin Moor and survey the panorama over Bodmin round to Camelford.
