Places to Visit in Cornwall

Cornwall, the UK’s surf capital, is home to spectacular beaches, natural beauty, and your next motorhome adventure! With its balmy climate and choice waves, it is no surprise that Cornwall is home to one of the biggest pro-surf competitions in Europe. So pack your surfboard and head to one of Cornwall’s many beaches – from Newquay to Porthtowan – for a staycation like no other.

Head over to Tehidy Country Park in Camborne for a lazy afternoon stroll. With over 9 miles of beautiful trails and 250 acres of peaceful woodland and lakes, there is no shortage of things to explore. Be immersed in the natural beauty of a place rich with flora and fauna as you explore its leafy glades and the wildlife it has to offer. Head to Gyllngvase Beach in Falmouth for a picturesque afternoon on a golden arc of soft sand, next to clear, inviting waters. Head over to St Austel for a stroll through the UNESCO World Heritage Charlestown Harbour. Situated on the south coast of Cornwall, the harbour is an amazingly pristine, unspoiled example of a late Georgian working port and is often used in historic films, including Poldark.

Check out Truro, the only city in Cornwall, and stare in wonder at the striking cathedral there, with its green spire and gothic appearance. Take your bicycle along with you and drink in lovely countryside views as you explore the Camel Trail cycling route – from beautifully wooded areas to towns brimming with the local history. Feel small again at The Bedruthan Steps, where large granite rocks loom over the soft sandy beach – legends say these rocks were once the stepping stones of giants. Learn about the Cornish mining industry at the Botallack mine, which are dramatically positioned at the foot of ocean-side cliffs, making for a stunning view. Head to Tintangel Castle, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur and marvel at the natural beauty of the dramatic fort overlooking the sea. Watch the fishing boats come and go in Port Isaac, a tiny fishing village in the north of Cornwall. Follow the coastal pathway around the village and admire the quaint beauty of whitewashed cottages lining lush green cliffs.
