Places to stay in Cornwall

Cornwall is a much-loved holiday destination, thanks to its beautiful landscape and seaside charm. It's one of the more isolated areas of the UK, with a rich folklore and even its own language, but the attractions and activities for visitors of all ages make it one of the best places in England for a family getaway.

Whether you're avid walkers, history buffs or nature lovers, there's something in Cornwall for everyone. Wide, sandy beaches and craggy shorelines are ideal to explore, while the Roman ruins and beautifully-kept natural parkland - much of which is designated as UNESCO World Heritage sites - make for fascinating afternoons out.

Five Ffree Things To Do In Cornwall

Explore the countryside
The Cornwall Wildlife Trust manages over 55 reserves across the county, promising walks, cycle paths, beautiful natural landscapes and diverse wildlife.

Culture and legend
Cornwall's legends are fascinating for all ages. Visit some of the famous sites mentioned in the stories, such as Merlin's cave on Tintagel beach or the stone at Slaughterbridge where King Arthur is said to have fought his last battle.

Mount Edgcumbe Country Park
The gardens of Mount Edgcumbe Country Park are open to the public all year round, boasting rare trees and plants and a chance to catch a glimpse of local wild fallow deer.

Princess Pavilions
Beautiful gardens and a hidden tunnel to the seafront make this an exciting location for kids and grown-ups. Look out for live music from the bandstand in the afternoon.

One of Cornwall's more unusual attractions, the Camel Centre in Helston is home to several camels and offers free admission to get up close with the herd!
