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.

A late season break for some coastal walks

4 of 5
An excellent location for visiting the Lizard area. Graham & Bette were great hosts accommodating my moth recording equipment in their garden! The bottle of wine and lovely cake (recipe supplied!) on arrival were most welcome.

Beautiful cottage and great location.

5 of 5
The cottage was ideal for the two of us and our Labrador. Well furnished and equipped with everything we needed. Jo dealt with the booking quickly and efficiently and all was ready for us including a few essentials like milk, tea and coffee and the wood burner ready to light with a starter supply of logs and kindling. The location is ideal for trips to all areas of S and SW Cornwall with Porthleven just a short trip away. We were lucky to have great weather in October but the cottage would be very comfortable winter or summer. Would recommend it as a great cosy hideaway for a young or old couple and very dog friendly (including the local pub at Breage!).
