Famed for its pasties and cream teas, the West Country is a largely rural area and includes the counties of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset. Its other claim to fame is as the host for the Glastonbury festival.
Cornwall has a mild climate, and there are many Stone Age and industrial archaeological sites to be found, as well as the Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape, which is a World Heritage site. The Cornish language is still taught in some schools and used in some civil ceremonies.
Cornwall is also known for its rich folk music tradition, and there are plays and festivals such as the Mummers Plays, the Furry Dance in Helston, and Obby Oss in Padstow.
The cottage is only a few minutes from Fistral beach, which hosts surf championships and is undoubtedly one of the best beaches in Cornwall.
Next to the beach is an 18 hole golf course, so whilst the family are entertained on the beach Dad can play golf!!
Also in the opposite direction 5 minutes walk, from the house is The Gannel Estuary for horse-riding, bird watching, fishing and fabulous walks, or simply to escape the crowds.
The boating lake and gardens are worth a visit. Not far from them are Newquay Zoo and a fun pool for the kids.
Newquay town centre is 10 minutes walk, there you will find plenty of shops, cafes and bars. Nightlife is well catered for and there is plenty to choose from. In the town nearby is Towan Beach on the front is an aquarium and Newquay Harbour (if you are lucky you may see our resident seal)! With seven beautiful beaches you are spoilt for choice.
The Eden Project has been a very popular tourist attraction and is approx. 15 miles from Newquay, worth a visit. There are some beautiful gardens to visit, my favourite is Trebah gardens near Falmouth, and it has a hidden beach ideal for picnics. Just to mention a few!!
