Looking for a summer holiday that will engage all the family but won't involve blobbing around on the beach? Consider Cornwall. Admittedly in some parts of the county you’re never far from world-class surf and stunning dunes, but Cornwall for an active family is about much more than sea and sand. It’s a garden paradise with the space, time and expertise to pump up the adrenaline, and then slow it all down again.
Cornwall is many things to many people. It’s a spectacular coastline, with miles of jagged clifftops and secret coves. It’s a busy harbour, where fishing boats buzz in and out with a fresh catch for lunch or dinner. It’s a surfers’ paradise, with the ultimate wave delivering you to the beach where families build castles of golden sand. It’s the end of the land and the beginning of a relaxing break. It’s the Eden Project and the Tate and a wealth of culture. It’s a delicious pasty and a cream tea with a view.
