Your Cornish sanctuary by the sea

A tale of two coasts. That’s how Charles Dickens might describe Cornwall. To the north, the mighty Atlantic: mad, bad and dangerous to know, but somehow thrilling and impossible to ignore.

Family friendly Beach Holidays in Newquay

Kids can be a little hard to please these days.  They want adventure, excitement and they don’t want to travel for it!  So where are you going to take your kids on holiday that’s going to suit them all?  Well, if you’re looking for a fun-packed family adventure without leaving the UK, the destination that you seek is Cornwall.

The Kernow Way

Wherever we go, and whatever we do, we have an impact. Let's make sure it’s a positive one. Do it #thekernowway. Clean Cornwall is asking Cornish residents, visitors and business owners to consider how we can all minimise our impact as we step into one of the busiest summers we've ever had.

So whether you are a local, or here on holiday.. we all have a shared responsibility to look after this special place.

We call it the Kernow Way

In Cornwall we say 'Doing it dreckly'.

Feeling Adventurous?
