- Where to go in Cornwall?
I could spend a whole weekk in Polperro. It’s lovely.
I’ll be spending 2 weeks there in the summer 😀 at my mates retirement place.
Eden project is good but quite a lot of walking, we’ve also been reccomended the ‘lost gardens of Heligan’ . I’d avoid Port Isaac it’s pretty steep as is Tintagel castle , Pendennis castle is quite nice with great veiws over the estuary at Falmouth. If you go to Padstow then get a pasty from the ‘Chough’ bakery mmmmmmm!
at this time of year there might be some tall ships in for repair at Charlestown.Posted 7 years agocrispy baconMember
If you don’t want to travel very far & you want good access to a beach for your pregnant wife then Seaton is just up the coast from Polperro & could fit the bill.
Parking is right next to the beach & you can walk along the beach towards Downderry & beyond. If you don’t fancy the beach then there is a nature trail leading inland. Not sure what the shell picking is like along the beach but there is a nice pub in Downderry just off the beach to stop for lunch. Alternatively there is the Smugglers Inn or the beach cafe @ Seaton to choose from. Oh & the Copley Arms at Hessenford is another nice place to eat.
I hope you have a great weekend in Kernow.
EDIT: not sure why the Seaton link on Google maps won’t work – anyway paste ‘Seaton, Torpoint, UK’ – in the search box & it should be Ok – OopsPosted 7 years agodjgloverMember
Get timeout devon and cornwall, it will tell you all the great places to go. I went with the kids so lots of days out revolved around them but I highly recommend Glendurgan Garden and St Ives as nice places to go without kids.
My advice is, go somewhere else as Cornwall could easily become the default destination once junior arrives, thats if you make it past centre parks 🙂Posted 7 years agosharkiMember
St Agnes for wee pretty Peebles and Holywell for a beach made of seashells, literally full of them
Either the beach at Rock or the opposite one near Padstow.(Hawkers) Both are sublime golden beaches.
Really liked Fowey and ready money beach nearby where i slept in the shelter in the corner of the beach.
If you go into Polpero, where you certainly could spend a couple days wandering. Pop in the Blue peter and say hi for me(the glam land lady may remember me) She soothed my hayfever shreaded eyes. And if you walk out to the coast path heading west from there, check out the shelter and see if my Fenix torch is still there..:(
It’s useless asking me for places to visit in Kernow. Having walked the entire coast of it, there’s just to many amazing places to see.Posted 7 years agoteagirlMember
Where to start!! St Ives out of season is wonderful, Mousehole is gorgeous and with fine pub, Porthcurno has dramatic waves, Sennen is a fine walk, Pub at Zennor is the best place ever for food and company………I could go on, and on….. I’m hitched to a Cornishman. Yearning for the summer 😀Posted 7 years agorusty trowelMember
Wherever you go, make the most of sitting in a bar or restaurant in peace and quiet and taking your time eating. It could be the last time for a lot of years! (p.s. congratulations Rich).
As stated, St Ives is lovely (when you’re not wrestling the kids around) and this time of year most towns, villages and roads should be nice and quiet. Just avoid Newquay for obvious reasons.Posted 7 years agoElfinsafetyMember
Don’t go to anywhere near Bude at this time of year. Atlantic coast, bloody freezing and utterly miserable. It will be wet and very windy, nasty.
I have many very unhappy memories of going to see relatives in a place near Bude. Bored out of my head, nothing to do (‘Oh why don’t you go for a nice walk?’ Because it’s bloody freezing and raining and I don’t want to).
I’m probbly not really the best person to give advice on such matters…Posted 7 years ago
