If you haven’t yet heard, everyone has been heading to Cornwall recently. I wanted to learn why this place seems to be all anyone is talking about, particularly for people who need a quick get away or want to travel with kids while keeping the stress levels low.
One of the great things about Cornwall is that it’s such an accessible holiday destination in the UK. You can easily combine the trip with lots of breaks to explore the area and grab snacks, making it far less stressful compared with dealing with the airport.
Cornwall is also a great place to go if you’re looking for a nice warm destination. It has a sub tropical climate, meaning you’ll find some gorgeous gardens throughout the area. It’s also a beach destination, so don’t forget your swim suit.
For the younger (and older) crowd, Cornwall boasts a number of excellent pubs. Many of them are on the coast or have a truly interesting history. The locals are used to the tourists, and will often go out of their way to ask where you’re from or give you advice about the area.
While Cornwall is an excellent destination for families, it has also become increasingly popular amongst backpackers. That’s because it’s still one of the few places where you can lose yourself amongst the Cornish moors, and spend plenty of time exploring the countryside. The area has a lot to see, including historic sites like stone circles, old churches, manor homes, and castles.
And if you’re on a budget, you can also stay in a . Some of the best even have incredible sea views, so you can enjoy some of the spectacular sites right from your tent. These aren’t the old holiday parks we grew up with. Instead, expect heated swimming pools, live entertainment, bars with takeaway and eat-in options, and even kids clubs. Oh, and don’t leave the dog at home- some parks are pet and dog friendly, with exercise areas and walks.
There is also a wide range of attractions for people of all ages to explore, and you can be as active or inactive as you like. Whether you plan to spend your holiday on the beach with a good book, exploring the local walks, or seeing everything and everything, Cornwall has it all.
