So, if there’s one activity you’ve got to try your hand at while you’re in Cornwall it’s the county’s favourite pastime – surfing. You may be staying in a luxury lodge, but you’re pretty much obliged to spend at least one day under the careful tuition of a professional and trying to catch a wave. Most of the surf schools promise to have you standing on the board within two hours, so if you’re after a surf selfie to show those back home then chances are you’ll get it…
A busy day on the surfboard is one way to build a healthy appetite, but with a thriving foodie scene to rival London, Cornwall has now become a prime foodie destination. With options to eat out ranging from quirky cafes and beach huts to award-winning restaurants, Cornwall more than makes the most of its notorious fresh seafood – and just why is it that meals always taste better outside with a sea view? You’ll find foodie festivals at various resorts throughout the county all year round, with highlights including Falmouth Oyster Festival and Newquay Fish Festival.
Now for the walkers, Cornwall is home to some of the South West Coast Path’s most dramatic sections, and if you’re keen to explore the county’s views on foot then you’ll have your pick of clifftop walks, winding pathways and picture perfect spots. Those of you who were gripped by Poldark will be pretty familiar with beautiful Bodmin Moor by now, and it’s not only been given World Heritage Status but also an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty perfect for walkers.
Speaking of natural beauty (and we mean Bodmin not Poldark of course…),Cornwall is home to more than 40 gardens open to the public, so if the Eden Project has you hankering to see even more of the county’s horticulture then you’ll have garden after garden to choose from.
Basing your Cornwall exploration at one of our luxury lodges offers you the chance to fully embrace Cornwall life from the comfort of a contemporary home from home. We’d recommend the Rosehill luxury lodges in Cornwall, as the perfect base for families who wish to experience the North Cornish Coast, with the stunning (and brand new might we add) Una holiday homes offering a base for families that wish to be nearer St Ives. The dog lovers amongst you should consider staying at either Stonerush Lakes or Southern Halt lodges which are based in the heart of the countryside, although for those of you who want to be near the beach and take you pet along, look no further than The Towans.
