Summer Holidays in Cornwall or going abroad? We have listed all the pros for spending your family holidays in the UK.
1. Cornwall has some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe
Beautiful golden sands and turquoise water; on a sunny day the views could be easily mistaken for somewhere in the Caribbean. Perranporth, Fistral and St. Ives’ Porthmeor Beach have all recently been voted to be amongst the best beaches in Europe and Cornwall’s life guards make sure that you can feel safe whilst spending time on the beach. In the evenings you get to see the most amazing sunsets…maybe enjoyed with a cool drink?
2. So much to see and do
Cornwall has so much to offer; where else could you visit quaint fishing villages, taste local cheeses and wines, cycle from coast to coast, learn to surf and watch Shakespeare with a sea view, all in the space of a few days?
3. Fabulously, unusual events
Watch a polo match on the beach whilst enjoying a glass of champagne, learn about all the quirky Cornish traditions at the local carnival events, try the famous local produce at Cornwall’s food & drinks festivals and listen to sea shanties at one of the old, traditional pubs. Lots of stories to tell your friends and family when you come back from your Summer holidays in Cornwall.
4. Delicious, local produce
Cream Tea, Yarg and Stargazy Pie should all be on your “Things to eat in Cornwall” list and did you know that the Camel Valley Sparkling White is classed to be just as nice (if not better) as real Champagne? Not to mention Cornish Ale, Cider and freshly made Cornish lemonade… So much to sample, such little time!
5. Cornish Walks with a view
Cornwall has a great range of fantastic coastal and inland walks. Just the South West Coast Path is 630 miles long. Fresh air and amazing views, ideal for some proper Cornish relaxation time. Various routes for walks that cater for all abilities can be downloaded online.
6. The most glorious gardens in the country
Cornwall is often described as the ‘garden capital of the world’ as the lush vegetation and colour give garden lovers a feast for the eyes all year round. Check the ”Garden Finder” to find the best Gardens around.
7. Heaps of family attractions
Apart from the usual theme parks and lazy days spent on the beach, Cornwall has some great family attractions on offer. Feeding farm animals, visiting the tin mines, taking part in child friendly workshops at the famous Eden Project and of course, testing your skills at all the great watersports on offer. Your kids will have the time of their life on your family holidays.
8. Mild climate
The mild climate in Cornwall will allow you and your family to enjoy the Summer without having to worry about heat strokes or sleepless nights due to high temperatures. Especially when travelling with children this will make your life much easier and going on a day trip when the sun isn’t scorching hot is just a little more comfortable.
9. Hassle free travel
By staying in the UK you can cut your travel time quite substantially. No long waits with your tired and bored children in airport lounges, no unexpected delays, overbooked flights or jet lags plus you are doing your bit of protecting the environment by reducing your carbon footprint.
10. Save money
Think of all the money you can save by not having to book a flight for every member of your family. You also won’t need international travel insurance and saving on currency commissions will allow you to buy more tasty, home made ice cream and scrumptious Cornish pasties. What more could you want?
If you are thinking of spending your Summer Holidays in the UK then why not visit Cornwall. We know this lovely family hotel, right on the coast and only a short walk from the beach that has all the family friendly facilities you need for your holidays. Take a look.
