The Great Cornish Outdoors

Cornwall is lined with stunning rugged coastline, sandy
beaches, picturesque harbour sides and rural countryside, with quieter roads,
attractions and deserted beaches up until the run up until October half term autumn
is the perfect time of the year to get out and about and explore the great
Cornish outdoors and everything our county has to offer.

So, where to go?… leave that to us

From  as little as £5.40 a month you can join the National Trust which gains access
to around 50 places in Cornwall as well as access to hundreds of places nationwide.

Including, Levant Mine which is featured
in the BBC’s much loved Poldark,
Lanhydrock, Bedruthan Steps, Lizard Point as well as family houses, historic
buildings, mining heritage, nature reserves, gardens, parklands and miles of
coastline all there for you to enjoy the perfect day out.

Close to our Tresooth
near Falmouth you will find Glendurgan Gardens, Bosveal, Trelissick Gardens
and St Anthony Head.

near Newquay & Perranporth there is Holywell (another
famed filming location of Poldark) Crantock Beach and Elizabethan manor house Trerice.


Looking for a little mystical, magical
autumn walk? If so we say the place to go is St Nectan’s Glen. Although it is a
bit of a drive from our accommodation it is well worth the visit.


Set in an area of
outstanding natural beauty as you journey through ancient woodland with ivy
clad tree along the banks of the River Trevillet where animals and birds
play amid a mysticism of fairies, piskies before making your way to the spectacular
sixty foot waterfall through a hole in the rocks.

Not a fan of walking… try
cycling. One of our favourite outdoor activities has to be the Camel Trail.
Cycle the old disused rail line from Wadebridge to Padstow that has now become a haven for
cyclists. And the best part is, you don’t even have to worry about bringing
your bikes with you as they are cheap as chips to hire.


We always head to Bike Smart – on the Camel
for ours before sauntering along the banks of the camel estuary
taking in the exquisite views and crisp fresh air stopping for a pre-packed
picnic or treating ourselves to fish and chips in Padstow before we journey

You’ll want to make the most of Cornwall’s amazing
beaches whilst your here so head to the beach for some outdoor fun and


And we have some great news… Dogs bans across the county are lifted from
October the 1st so the whole family can go and play! And there’s
nothing more a dog loves than a trip to the beach!

If the autumn weather is a little wild, why not go
wave watching?


Newquay’s cribber is always a firm favourite when it gets fired
up as local surfers try to ride the beast! But wherever you head you can rest assure
that there will be a beachside cafe and sip on a toasty hot chocolate to warm
up afterwards.

Bodmin Moor is also a designated area of outstanding
natural beauty and offers panoramic views across Cornwall from what is actually
the county’s highest point Brown Willy.


See the mist eerily roll across the
valleys as you explore the mysterious standing stones and take in all the
changing colours that autumn brings along.
