5 Places for Me Time
Our pick of Cornish locations to find some 'me time'.
As part of the South West Coast Path, Cornwall boasts a 300 mile section filled with sheer variety, which means that there are plenty of gentle stretches as well as dramatic headlands, steep coastal valleys, sheltered estuaries, busy harbours, intimate coves, moorlands and sandy beaches. If you're seeking solitude it can be the best place as you can take in the stunning views while getting a blast of fresh air giving you some time to think. There are a variety of walks you can do that that can take anywhere between an hour to a full day.
Enjoy life at a slower pace and explore one of Cornwall's many secluded villages. Take a trip across one of the beautiful rivers or get lost for hours in the maze of narrow, winding streets, stumbling upon artists workshops, galleries, little cafes, and interiors shops selling gifts inspired by the sea. It can be a way for you to truly relax.
Whether you're looking for an all inclusive spa weekend or a relaxing treatment, Cornwall has a fantastic variety of spa locations for you to indulge in. From clifftop hot tubs and infinity pools to low lit private rooms perfect for a treatment of your choice.
Full of open spaces and silence from the hustle and bustle of nearby towns, Bodmin Moor is an idyllic place to explore and find some well deserved me time. Explore on foot and follow the pathways or try something a little different. Horse Riding at Hallagenna, in the heart of Bodmin Moor, is really something rather special. Bodmin Moor offers mile after mile of unspoilt, open moorland scenery right on your doorstep. Riding the dramatic, granite tors on a clear day can give you a spectacular view of Cornwall from coast to hills. The Moor offers a beautiful display of green pastures, rugged distant coastlines and unrivalled flora and fauna, a perfect day away from the hustle and bustle.
Cornwall has been a natural home to inspiration, art and ideas since the early 19th century. So much so that, apart from London, you'll find nowhere in the whole country that's host to more working artists than Cornwall. Whilst the Tate St Ives, the Barbara Hepworth Museum, The Minack Theatre and the Eden Project enjoy the beam of the international spotlight, outstanding local galleries and artists' workshops are everywhere, showcasing Cornwall's vibrant art scene. As you wander around you can take in the pieces of artwork alone or you could learn more about the art through talks held throughout the day.
