The West Country region
Cornwall is a truly inspirational county to visit! With so much natural beauty, history and stunning coastline, visitors can never tire of things to do.
For families there’s obviously the beaches, the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, Flambards Experience (a theme park), Helston; Lands End Visitors Centre; a zoo and aquarium in Newquay and a Seal Sanctuary in Helston. If the weather’s not so good there is also Paradise Park, just down the road (it has a jungle barn) and the Play Zone in St Ives. There’s also a go-karting track less than 10 minutes away.
For foodies there is an ever increasing number of very good restaurants (Fifteen in Newquay, Stein's in Padstow, Porthminster Cafe in St Ives) to name but a few, as well as a growing band of seriously good producers supplying wine, cheese, bread, fish and meat. St Ives has a food festival in July and Truro has one in September.
For those wanting to be active there is a golf course in Lelant, trout fishing, riding, surfing, rambling and much more.
The St Ives /Hayle/ Fraddam area
We have beaches just a 10 minute drive away - Godrevy/Gwithian beach is superb, great for surfers yet still safe for children. The quaint fishing port of St Ives is only a 20 minute drive away and is full of great restaurants and cafes, quirky, individual shops, and traditional seaside activities for families. Fames for its artistic light, St Ives boast the Tate Gallery, the Barbara Hepworth Museum and a plethora of galleries.
And don't forget St Michaels Mount in the pretty village of Marazion, only 20 minutes away.
Within 30 minutes you could be surfing at Watergate Bay (or eating at Jamie's thirteen), wandering around Padstow (or eating fish and chips at Rick Steins) or just gazing in wonder at the view of Porthcurno beach from the Minnack Theatre - on a sunny day, even better than the mediterranean!
If you're a bird lover we have two RSPB nature reserves right on our doorstep at Hayle Estuary and Marazion Marsh.
