For those looking for a sophisticated break in England this summer, a Cornwall glamping family holiday will offer refinement and serenity. Visitors to the UK’s most southerly county can expect balmy weather here, and the Cornish welcome will be just as warm. Glamping is the ideal way to experience the stunning seascapes and wild moorland of Cornwall.
The pace of life in Cornwall feels slower than in the big cities, so a leisurely stroll along the Cornish coast is the perfect way to unwind. A holiday here is a blank canvas on which to paint your ideal getaway – whether that involves exploring the Cornwall countryside, swimming in the sea or just watching the world go by in one of the charming coastal towns. The many villages dotted around Cornwall have delightful pubs and local grocers selling everyday essentials, but it’s the location, right on the edge of England, which makes a trip here so special.
There’s plenty to do for all the family in Cornwall. Try Cape Cornwall golf course, Beach restaurant for exquisite, fresh seafood and seaside activities such as crab fishing or potholing. On the Feather Down sites all tents are modern and comfortable so you can be sure of a good night’s sleep after a busy day exploring. Nothing beats getting back to nature in blissful harmony surrounded by a loving family. Take a look at the options available at our Cornwall Feather Down farms and get ready to a plan wonderful Cornwall glamping family holiday that you will never forget.
Body Boarding at Sennen Cove
We particularly enjoyed the beach at Porthcurno, which is only a short drive away. The car parking does get busy though on a sunny day, so do get there early! We enjoyed a Storytelling performance at the Minnack Theatre, which was a good introduction for the children. We did go to the Eden Project, which was a 1hr 20 mins drive. The children really enjoyed the rain forest and the hands-on exhibits. I would recommend NOT to go on a rainy day though, as it gets even more busy than usual! For a nice meal out, we would recommend the Gurnards Head near Zennor, the food was delicious and the staff very friendly - and we enjoyed the drive there along the coast.
Fabulous pasty shop in newly (Aunty mays), as recommended by sue. Porth kurnow is a must visit, as is Marazion.
We stumbled across Trevaski's farm in Hayle which was a real diamond of a find. Gorgeous (and very generous portions) selection of cakes, lovely deli selling all local produce and pick your own. The children also loved the animals on the farm which they were able to feed. Lizard Point, the Minack Theatre, Porthcurno, Praa Sands and Porthminster beaches were beautiful.
Porthcurno beach is a real treasure and St Michaels Mount is definitely worth visiting. There are so many wonderful places to visit but the children mostly liked being at the farm with the animals!
St Ives was lovely and the beaches!
Bring a gas stove so you can have your morning coffee quickly, rather than waiting for the fire.
Sennen Beach is a must for a beach day, 'Mackerell Sky Seafood Bar' in Newlyn is outstanding and well worth a visit.
Sennen Cove and look in advance to book the Minack theatre...it is incredible.
Definitely Porthcurno beach and the Telegraph Museum
Fresh fish from Newlyn, amazing beaches at Sennen and Porthcurno.
Local beaches & St Michaels mount
Get out and enjoy Cornwall rains or shine. It's the most amazing place!
The beach at Marazion and the trip across to St Michael's Mount was great; and the Maritime museum in Falmouth was excellent for a rainy day - lots for our 2 young children to do
Gwithian beach for surfing lessons and body boarding.
Enjoy the simplicity and beautiful open space!
The Minnack and Porthcurno and sunsets over Sennen Cove and Lands End
Some great walks that leave from the farm and include the local Cornish ponies. If you like fly fishing the Drift reservoir is just a few minutes walk and provides a great venue. The local beaches were all great with those on the south coast, Porthcurno for example, having an almost Mediterranean feel with white sands and clear turquoise sea.
See a show at the Minack Theatre.
