Things to do in Cornwall

  • Coast - Cornwall is proud of its beaches, many of which are truly spectacular. Six of the beaches meet Blue Flag standards and one of the most beautiful can be found at Porthmeor in St Ives; a large expanse of pristine golden sand and a great spot for surfing. The town of Newquay, also on the Atlantic coast, is famed for its surfing conditions and brilliant beaches.
  • Scenic walks - Many visitors head for Cornwall to experience the spectacular coastline, which can be admired along the South West Coast Path, offering countless spots of immense natural beauty. The Lizard peninsula, with its craggy cliffs, is a real highlight and the picturesque route of the River Camel, among many others.
  • Visitor attractions - One of Cornwall’s most famous attractions is the Eden Project, an ecological site established to coincide with the millennium, with thousands of different plant species housed inside huge domes. St Ives is home to a Tate branch, where there’s a collection of modern art, while for kids there’s Newquay Zoo and Crealy Adventure Park.
  • History - Steeped in myth and legend, Cornwall is a destination with tons of historical interest. Tintagel Castle is one of the premier attractions, the ruins of which stand on a headland and date back as far as Roman times in places. There are also numerous manor houses and prehistoric sites to seek out, like the Tudor Trerice House and Gardens.
  • Boat trips - Cornwall is one of the best locations in the UK for observing marine life, and there are a number of companies that offer trips to see dolphins, basking sharks and seals. Fishing is also popular, with wrecks and reefs providing habitats for a wealth of species off different coast.

Weather in Cornwall

When on your holiday at a cottage in Cornwall you’ll most likely experience mild weather whenever you visit. There’s more annual sunshine and temperatures are milder here than in any other part of the UK. In winter, daily highs commonly get into double figures and only rarely slip below freezing, even in December. Spring and autumn weather is a little warmer, with highs in the mid and upper teens. Summers are usually moderate here, and temperatures tend to get up to the 20-degree mark in July and August.

Travelling to Cornwall

You can reach your Holiday homes in Cornwall from the main airport there, which is Newquay (NQY); it has connections to a number of cities in the UK, with the most flown route to and from London Gatwick (LGW). Cornwall is unique in the sense that it doesn’t have any motorways running through it; rather a network of smaller A roads. The Duchy has good rail connections, both town by town and to the rest of the country. There are 12 trains daily between Plymouth and London Paddington, eight of which run all the way through to Penzance towards the western tip of Cornwall.

                                                            two wonderful weeks at treglindon

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            Wonderful place to relax and visit places in North Cornwall. Quiet and peaceful. Although off the main road easy to find. On the one hand modern and up-to-date facilities on the other hand cosy and comfortable. Sleeping areas well protected against noise from other parts of the house. Well maintained and looked after. Very clean. Excellent customer service and helpful neighbours. We keep recommending it to our friends. Nice pub with barfood in walking distance (10 min.) Good beaches, children facilities and restaurants in the area. We'll definately come again.

                                                            Exactly what we were looking for.

                                                            Amazing accommodation with every need catered for. Spotlessly clean and additional luxury of towels and robes. My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful relaxing 3 night stay and would definitely return.

                                                            Un séjour cosy et reposant

                                                            Parties à 5 amies françaises, nous avons découvert ce superbe petit village de Cornouailles, dans l'estuaire de la rivière Fowey. Le petit bourg plein de charme nous a offert des promenades superbes sur les chemins côtiers, avec des paysages variés : vertes collines, falaises rocheuses, mer turquoise et jolies villas aux jardinets fleuris. La maison confortable est superbement agencée : charme et confort, avec tout ce qu'il faut pour un agréable séjour. La vue de la terrasse est inoubliable. Calme assuré. Nous avons trouvé les clés dans un boitier à code, sans aucune mauvaise surprise. Bref une location à recommander.
