Cornwall has a reputation for its stunning natural beauty, with miles of glorious, unspoiled coastline. It offers breathtaking beaches, exquisite countryside and delicious local delicacies so it’s no wonder so many choose it as their holiday destination!
For the second year running, the Cornish Pasty is being celebrated in a week-long festival across the region. From Land’s End to the Tamar, the pasty party will tour the land, culminating in The World Pasty Championships at the Eden Project on Saturday 2nd March. There’ll be comedy, music and plenty of pasty fun - perfect for any die-hard pasty fans and not one to be missed!
We have three 5-Star parks across Cornwall, all perfect bases for soaking up the glorious scenery, exploring the hidden gems along the coast and of course - taste-testing to find THE best Cornish Pasty.
We’ve pulled together a list of our 5 favourite things to do whilst visiting the Cornish coast. With so much choice, we didn’t relish the task of narrowing it down, but here we go - five essential activities for your Cornwall trip…
1. Visit Fistral Beach - One of Cornwall’s most famous beaches, it’s a great place for the whole family to enjoy. From water-sports to sandcastle building to relaxation, the golden sands of this beach make for a stunning backdrop.
2. Eat at Fifteen by Jamie Oliver - The restaurant is located in a stunning position next to the sand at Watergate Bay on the North Cornish coast. Cornwall is a heaven for food lovers, offering fabulous seafood and a wealth of fantastic local produce; Fifteen makes full use of this, serving modern, Italian influenced dishes, using seasonal ingredients from the finest artisan producers in the county.
3. Watch a performance at the Minack Theatre - Enjoy a show at the world famous open-air theatre, carved into the granite cliff and set in glorious gardens overlooking the spectacular panorama of Porthcurno Bay.
4. Visit the Eden Project - Trek through the world's largest indoor rainforest, explore their Mediterranean Biome, and wander through their outstanding outdoor gardens. With a full calendar of family events throughout the year and music festivals in the summer, there’s always something on you’ll enjoy!
5. Walk at low tide to St Michael's Mount - One of the most photographed Cornish locations - and with good reason. Soak in the scenery and lose yourself in the history of the Mount’s story. Ferries will take you to the island at high tide so you don’t have to miss out!
