Cornwall is a beautiful and idyllic region in the South West of England, and perhaps one of the most beautiful regions in the country. Hosting many beautiful areas and a range of attractions, Cornwall is certainly a region that needs to be experienced at least once in a lifetime, particularly when you have a motorhome.
One of the most striking aspects of Cornwall is the natural beauty of the area. Many of its beaches, such as Porthminster Beach, Crantock Beach, Porthmeor Beach, Porthcurno and Porthgwidden Beach, are well regarded for their untouched natural beauty. Cornwall also boasts many other stunning places; it’s always worth the time to take a trek up Bodmin Moor in North-East Cornwall. There are many magnificent gardens to visit, including Trelissic and Trebah Garden, which host an amazing variety of plants. There are also various official Areas of Outstanding Beauty to visit, including St. Agnes and Hartland.
You can get closer to nature with attractions such as the Screech Owl Sanctuary and Cornish Seal Sanctuary, Britain’s busiest marine rescue centre, which has many marine creatures including seals, sealions and otters. Your family will love a visit to Paradise Park, home to many rare species of parrot, plus owls and kookaburras, as well as a number of other animals such as adorable red pandas and pygmy goats. It also includes the Jungle Barn, a large indoor play centre to keep younger visitors happy. Of course, nobody can bring up nature in Cornwall without talking about Newquay Zoo, home to many animals including wildebeest, lemurs and antelopes. There is also the Eden Project, which contains an entire rainforest within its biomes and is the scene for a wide variety of different attractions and events.
The history of Cornwall is incredibly rich, and there are many experiences to be had in regards to this. Being highly dependent on tin mining for many centuries, Cornwall hosts the well-preserved Geevor tin mine, where you can take an informative tour that will give you a taste of what it was like to work there. Saint Michael’s Mount is a former medieval monastery with beautiful gardens to explore. Tintagel, said to be home to the legendary King Arthur, plays host to amazing ruins and a medieval hamlet which are well worth exploring.
The Museum of Witchcraft, in Boscastle, makes for an interesting day out, as does Charlestown Shipwreck and Heritage Centre. There are a number of other attractions too: Minack Theatre is an open-air theatre next to the sea, constructed on a gully with astounding views. Many shows take place here from June to September. Healey’s Cornish Cyder Farm can show you how a variety of ciders and fruit wines are produced. Of course, you can also visit Land’s End.
