Cornwall

Glorious sandy beaches, beautiful fishing villages, ancient myths and legends, there’s so much to see and do whilst staying at one of our caravan parks or holiday parks in Cornwall. Read More...

Here’s our guide to the Top Ten Things To Do whilst on one of our caravan holidays in Cornwall.

1. Go surfing at Sennen
Sennen Cove is one of Britain’s most beautiful and best surfing beaches. Backed by weathered houses tucked into the hillside, it lies just a few miles from Land’s End. It is ideal for surfers of all levels, with lessons available for beginners and great waves for experienced surfers as well as novice body boarders.

2. Head to England’s extremities
Land’s End is famed as being the most westerly point on the English mainland, whilst the scenic Lizard Peninsula contains the most southerly spot. Looking out into the Atlantic from either of these points it is possible to contemplate the power and potency of the sea. Land’s End is more commercialised with a tourist complex which features the history and heritage of Cornwall, while the high cliffs of Lizard Point are home to a lighthouse which is open to the public.

3. Visit the global gardens of the Eden Project
More than simply a green theme park, the Eden Project demonstrates the need for environmental care to create a sustainable future for our planet. Created in a former Cornish china clay pit close to St Austell, the Project aims to visually tell the story of man’s dependence on plants. It is a rich, global garden where nature at its very best can be experienced.

4. See the art of St Ives
The popular resort of St Ives is the haunt of artists with galleries and studios centred around the picturesque harbour, home to the famous Tate St Ives. The stunning building overlooks the magnificent surfing beach of Porthmeor and features exhibitions of the modern St Ives School of painters as well as other contemporary work.

5. Walk the causeway to St Michaels Mount
The tower, chapel and battlements of St Michael’s Mount rise majestically from the sea on an islet just offshore. It is accessed by a causeway at low tide, once walked by pilgrims in honour of the alleged appearance of Saint Michael, whilst at other times visitors are ferried from Marazion to the Mount in small boats.

6. Taste a real Cornish pasty
Since 2011 only those pasties produced in Cornwall can be called Cornish Pasties. So, taste a genuine Cornish Pasty whilst in the county. There is a wealth of folklore and legend surrounding the pasty which has been a hearty snack for over 300 years. It was favoured by local tin miners as the pastry case kept meat and vegetables clean, whilst helping to retain the distinctive flavour.

7. Go underground at an historic tin mine
Located on the dramatic Cornish coastline between St Ives and Land’s End and part of the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, Geevor Tin Mine is one of the largest preserved mine sites in the country. Housed in two acres of listed buildings, Geevor’s collections and guides bring the story of Cornwall’s rich industrial past to life, most evocatively during the underground tour.

8. Explore the birthplace of a legend
King Arthur was said to have been born on Tintagel Island where the remains of a 13th century castle stand today. It sits high above the seas on a glorious stretch of coastline, a most evocative place to visit and soak up the atmosphere. Below the castle on Castle Beach is Merlin’s cave, which is accessible at low tide.

9. See a performance at Cornwall’s world-famous open-air theatre
Known as Cornwall’s theatre under the stars, the Minack Theatre is built into the side of a cliff overlooking one of the most stunning beaches and coastlines in Cornwall. Situated close to Land’s End, the open-air theatre provides a dramatic and unforgettable setting for performances of drama, musicals and opera.

10. Discover the Lost Gardens of Heligan
Rediscovered in 1992 and rescued from decades of undergrowth, the Lost Gardens of Heligan have been acclaimed as the garden restoration of the century. This is a magical place with a fascinating history, well worth exploring. Discover the ancient woodlands rich with wildlife, and the romance of the Victorian Productive Gardens and Pleasure Grounds laid out over two centuries ago. Get lost in an exotic outdoor jungle whilst adventuring along raised boardwalks past giant rhubarb, banana plantations and through tunnels of towering bamboo.

If this inspires you, why not browse our selection of holiday parks and caravan parks in Cornwall, and see what catches your eye?
