Cornwall is one of the most popular holiday destinations in the UK and provides some of the most breathtaking coastal views and local delicacies. The great thing is, it’s a place you can visit anytime during the year, and still have an amazing experience.
It’s the ideal place for a weekend escape, but, what do you do, where do you stay, and what should you eat?! Have no fear, your weekend Cornish travel guide is here to help you out.
Best Things To Do In Cornwall
Plan your weekend escape during the warmer months, and you can spend a lot of time on the wonderful Cornish beaches. It’s a place that’s well-known for having the best beaches in the UK, and some excellent surfing weather too. There are watersports, boat trips, and so much more.
For those of you wanting a less active trip, or one that’s not in summer, you still have plenty of options at your disposal.
Feast your eyes on one of the most iconic places in Cornwall; the Eden Project. It’s impossible to visit this county and not end up here for a few hours. It’s a gigantic greenhouse full of beautiful flowers and is well worth the trip.
Alternatively, you can take a trip to the wondrous St Michaels Mount – a little island just off the coast with amazing views at sunset. Definitely a place for you to spend an evening.
Booking Your Accommodation
Now, we may be a little biased, but we believe The Cornwall Hotel, Spa & Estate is the best place to stay for a weekend getaway. You’ve got relaxing spa facilities to help all the stress of the previous week melt away, along with stunningly comfortable rooms and a gorgeous manor house setting. If you ever get bored of feeling unbelievably comfortable and content, there are open grounds for you to walk around and explore.
We recommend you book in advance as rooms do sell extremely fast, particularly during peak periods in the year. If you’re looking to save money, try and plan your trip at a time that most people don’t think about going on holiday. There’s also a self-catering option if you’re interested.
Things To Eat
You can’t plan a weekend escape to Cornwall without considering what to eat. It’s a county famous for things such as pasties, ice cream, and scones. All of which need to be in your belly by the time you leave.
We also recommend visiting one of the many amazing seafood restaurants to sample fresh catches at competitive prices. No one in England does seafood like the Cornish! If you’re feeling brave, try the scary looking Stargazy Pie, it tastes a lot better than it looks.
Just like that, you’ve planned a weekend escape to the lovely county of Cornwall! Regardless of what you choose to get up to, you’re guaranteed to have an amazing time in this southwestern paradise. With amazing scenes, great food, and friendly locals, it’s almost rude not to plan a weekend getaway soon!
