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. To the south, its more courteous cousin: the English Channel (or just “The Channel” here), less hot-headed and more genteel of manner, albeit with hidden depths. Think Ross Poldark contrasted with Nigel Havers.

Here Comes the Summer

Here comes summer, and even in this post-covid world, Cornwall is ready to welcome you with attractions and events galore. Here are ten fun things you can do with the family, to suit all pockets; prices where featured are for a two-adult family admission.

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'.

Can you remember how to have a great time after the long lockdown months?

Feeling Adventurous?

If you’ve made a resolution to make time to experience new adventures in your life – whether big or small, Cornwall is the perfect place to try new things.

Shake off those Winter Blues

February half-term is an oasis of fun, a chink of light in the darkest depths of winter. The days might be shorter than in high summer and the weather less reliable, but Cornwall is still the best place to be if you know how to enjoy yourself, with the added bonus that accommodation is generally cheaper than during peak season. Here are some suggestions:

Take a blustery stroll by the coast

Extend your holiday beyond the summer in a Cornish hotel

Perhaps one of the lesser-known secrets about a holiday in the South West is that it’s not just a destination for the summer months. With its dramatic coastline, beautiful beaches, local food and abundant wildlife, Cornwall offers visitors something different to enjoy each season. With the changing light comes different elements to enjoy, swapping sea swims and sunbathing for long walks and cosy evenings in, just because summer has a sell by date doesn’t mean the holiday season does!
