Family Days Out in Cornwall

The mecca of family holidays, Cornwall has plenty to offer visitors of all ages, and with prices to suit all pockets. Here’s a selection of attractions and activities.

Mevagissey; a safe harbour

Narrow streets and steep valley sides lead you down to the centre of the old Mevagissey, where the distinctive twin harbour provides a safe haven for the fishing boats that land their daily catch of skate, lobster, plaice and sole. Mevagissey was built on fish, in the 1800s and early 1900s it prospered on the back of the abundant source of pilchards (sardines) caught in local waters.

Memories are made of this

If ever there was a place where memories are made, Cornwall is surely it. If you’ve been before, you are probably reliving old memories while making new ones; if it’s your first time, you might be wondering how best to go about the business of creating lifelong impressions, to keep you going in your dotage.

Ross Poldark only featured once, and even then, he had his clothes on and was just walking along the South West Coast Path.
