Cornwall offers so much for any visitor, from The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the Eden Project, sailing, swimming, surfing, beaches and rockpools to explore, the National Maritime Museum Falmouth, the Tate Modern St Ives, St Michaels Mount the list goes on and on… We would be delighted to share our favourite days out with you, your family and friends.
The beaches to be found on the Roseland Peninsula are considered to be very quiet and this adds to the charm and uniqueness of the Roseland. Most of the beaches on the Roseland Peninsula are easily accessible and for some parking may be just a short distance away from the beach itself.
Cornwall has some superb restaurants and pubs and has become famous in recent years for fine produce and award winning dishes. Jamie Oliver opened a restaurant in Cornwall a number of years ago and Rick Stein has followed suit, opening two restaurants in Padstow. The pubs and restaurants in St Mawes, and on the Roseland Peninsular, are equally good and all offer good food and drink in a comfortable Cornish atmosphere.
With the Eden Project as the number one garden attraction, Cornwall also has dozens of other publicly open gardens to satisfy the appetite of the most enthused botanists! Being a small county, its perfectly feasible to visit a large number of them during a weeks stay without having to spend countless hours traveling.
The beaches in Cornwall need no introduction. They are some of the best in the UK and often win awards for their cleanliness and facilities. Fistral Beach in Newquay is a hotspot for surfers and regularly hosts international surfing competitions. Some of the best beaches can be found along the Roseland Peninsula which offers secluded sandy beaches surrounded by steep cliffs.
For the more active the cycle routes in Cornwall are second to none and are a great way to see parts of the county that you can’t when travelling by car. The Camel Trail near Padstow is probably the most well known and is actually quite an easy trail as its mostly flat.
Being surrounded on three sides by the sea, it’s obvious that watersports form a major part of activities in Cornwall. From kayaking and sailing to scuba diving and water skiing, it’s all available in Cornwall. The north coast is the place for surfing while the south coast, in particular the Carrick Roads, is preferred by Yachtsman for their calmer waters. St Mawes is perfectly located for you to get involved in all forms of water sports with regular races and events held throughout the summer months.
