Discover the perfect spot for a picnic in Cornwall

May 13th, 2016

We love getting out an about at The Valley, exploring the stunning rugged coastline, peaceful woodlands and wild moors of Cornwall. At our self-catered Cornish holiday cottages, you can pack up a fantastic picnic for the family and eat out in the sun when exploring the beauty of this county.

Here are the some of the best spots to have a picnic out in the countryside wild of Cornwall:

Porthmeor Beach, St Ives

One of five beaches in Cornwall to have Blue Flag status, Porthmeor Beach is a popular spot for families and surfers. If you want a day at the beach, sunbathing, surfing or swimming, be sure to pack your picnic outing because this is the spot.

Bedruthan Steps, Mawgan Porth

For some Cornish al-fresco dining, the beach at Mawgan Porth, with views of slate stacks is the place. Legend is that the stacks were placed on the beach as stepping stones for the Cornish Giant, Bedruthan. The surrounding cliffs also boast great views of this spectacular stretch of coast.

Kynance Cove, Lizard Peninsula

Kynance Cove is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Cornwall, so would make the perfect backdrop for a picnic in the sun. On the western side of the Lizard Peninsula, the area has gorgeous views of clear water, white sand and rare rock formations.

Camel Trail, Wentford Bridge to Padstow

A cycle along the coast is sure to build up an appetite. The Camel Trail is 18 miles suitable for cyclists, walkers and horse riders, and follows the route of an old railway line, with plenty of picture-perfect picnic spots along the way.
