Camping & Glamping in Cornwall with Cosy Outdoors
Ready for your best holiday ever? Cornwall is one of the best-loved holiday destinations in the UK, and it’s easy to see why. With stunning coastal scenery, several nature reserves, gardens and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, choosing Cornwall as your destination means a great holiday in the great outdoors is as easy as pie (or a Cornish pasty).
Discover the natural beauty of Cornwall
From remote coastal paths to country parks to meticulously maintained gardens, enjoying some green therapy and getting in touch with nature is easy in Cornwall. If you’d like to feel like a character in a period drama, you can visit the enchanting secret garden of the Tremayne family estate, the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Or, for a day out that is as educational as it is visually stunning, pay a visit legendary Eden project to explore the natural beauty of areas as far away from each other as the Amazon rainforests and the Mediterranean. The Eden Project is also the place to go for thrilling activities like climbing, freefall jumps and zip wiring. There are also loads of family events and live music on at the Eden Project in the summer months.
And what would a holiday in Cornwall be without some adventures on the beach? The sandy beaches of Cornwall are as numerous as they are stunning, but a few deserve a special mention.
Sennen Cove at the Land’s End is known for its pristine white sand, blue water and impressive Atlantic waves that are popular with surfers. The sleepy fishing village of Sennen is also worth stopping at for its pretty little houses and charming pubs. Kynance Cove in the Lizard Peninsula is widely regarded as one of the best beaches in the world, with mossy rock formations rising from the blue sea to frame this beach that looks like it was ripped from the pages of a storybook.
Fall in love with the Cornish charm
Having a bit of a road trip to visit small towns and villages from St Ives to Land’s End is an ideal way to experience the charm of Cornwall. Stop along the way to visit small museums and galleries, for some Cornish cream tea or a ploughman’s pub lunch and rub elbows with the friendly locals.
If you’re interested in learning more about the history and legends of Cornwall, pay a visit to Tintagel Castle. This stunning castle is said to be the birthplace of the legendary King Arthur, and there are lovely walks around the grounds, leading out to Tintagel Island and Merlin’s Cave, where the wizard is said to have worked on his magic.
The Charlestown Shipwreck & Heritage Centre is a must-see attraction for fans of the TV series Poldark, though you don’t have to be a fan to enjoy your time here. With exhibits gathered from over 150 shipwrecks, this is a truly fascinating museum with hundreds of stories to capture your imagination. The museum has a lovely restaurant, and your ticket also gives you access to the historic Charlestown Port.
Cornwall also has a number of festivals and local celebrations. A few date back all the way to the pagan days, such as Helston’s Flora Day and Padstow’s Obby Oss Day. For film and literature buffs, the annual Cornwall Film Festival and the North Cornwall Book Festival are excellent options. Meanwhile, foodies will love the Portlethen Food Festival as well as the Scilly Isles Food & Drink Festival
