Top tips for having an outdoor adventure in Cornwall

April 19th, 2016

As the weather gets warmer, Cornwall is the perfect place to be outdoors, with wild swimming, surfing, fishing, climbing and many more activities to do outside. When staying at our Cornwall holiday cottages, not far from Truro, take the opportunity to make the most of the great outdoors with these tips:

Go wild and explore with your kids. Play in the sand dunes at Holywell Bay, explore smuggler’s cave on the coast or wander the mysterious woodlands.

Try coasteering off the Cornish coast, this will give you an adrenaline high and as the water gets warmer in the coming months there is no excuse not to try it! Get lost in the Atlantic waters as you explore coves, climb granite rock faces and even take part in cliff jumping.

Get immersed in nature with wild swimming. There are hidden coves, rocky inlets and pools near rivers perfect for a splash. Check out some great locations for wild swimming here.

Have a go at some golf. With first class fairways and coastal views on the courses, nothing beats getting competitive on a round of golf whilst enjoying the fantastic Cornish landscape.

Explore the nooks and crannies of Cornwall’s coast with a rock pool adventure. There are crabs, starfish, seaweed and more to find among the numerous pools.

The Cornwall coast is a hotspot for surfing in the UK. Grab a board and ride the waves, it’s a great sport whether you’re an expert or a novice.

Enjoy a spot of fishing that is great for both the kids and adults in the holiday group. Cornwall has tonnes of lakes, harbours, and rivers where you can enjoy a spot of fishing.

There are miles of coastal paths reaching the whole length of the Cornish coast, that is perfect for dog walking. Certain parts allow dogs of the leash, so your dog can roam free and play.
