When visiting Cornwall, there is absolutely no way you'll be short of things to do. The county boasts a huge amount of attractions for holiday-makers, so take a look at some of the great things you could do when staying in our Cornwall cottages:
The Eden Project is a world-famous site that contributes to conservational education, and is a spectacular feat of engineering itself; it is definitely worth a visit. Due to much of the appeal coming from the tropical and Mediterranean biomes, each of which maintain their temperatures no matter the season, come rain or shine, the Eden project makes for a great day out all year round. There are even seasonal events, such as the ice skating rink that is set up over winter.
Visit Newquay Zoo and experience the world's wildlife all at Cornwall's award winning zoo. Take a trip around the globe and see everything from the tiniest monkey to ‘Connie' the African lion all surrounded by some beautiful lakeside gardens.
If visiting in summer, then skipping out on the beaches would be a terrible mistake. With the most coastline of any county in the UK, Cornwall also has some of the best beaches, especially for surfing and body boarding. It's also possible to engage in other water sports, such as windsurfing, kite surfing or kayaking, depending on where you go. For those who don't want to be quite as active, there are plenty of beaches perfect for swimming, paddling, building sandcastles and exploring rock pools, all whilst enjoying Cornwall's sunny climate.
Newquay's award winning aquarium offers visitors the chance to take an undersea safari of the worlds oceans without ever getting wet. The award winning attraction also has special displays showing the incredible sea life found along our own shorelines.
The coastal footpath provides some spectacular walking routes. Why not trek around the Lizard? Or Land's End? If you're feeling particularly adventurous, you could cross the causeway to St Michael's Mount, which is submerged during high tides.
The pretty town is a haven for artists, and the world famous Tate even has a branch there. The Barbara Hepworth museum and sculpture garden are also there, and budding artists shouldn't miss the opportunity to paint the sea view, as many have throughout the years. Here are our St Ives cottages.
The quaint village is famous for fishing, and the restaurants that have set up in Padstow because of this. Rick Stein's Seafood Restaurant is there, located right by the harbour, and the freshly cooked fish or shellfish will provide you with a meal to remember. Here are our cottages in Padstow.
The museum near St Just allows you to see how Cornwall developed its wealth as tin mining advanced throughout the centuries, and take a trip underground to witness the danger miners faced each and every day.
Come and celebrate the rich marine heritage of Cornwall and the UK at this award-winning museum. Discover the world of shipwrecks, try on a diving suite and feel what its like to be under water or try out some of the many fantastic interactive exhibits on display at this fun museum.
