When you’ve booked your log cabin holidays in Cornwall, you’re in for a special treat. With its sandy beaches, fishing villages, and coastline reminiscent of the Mediterranean, Cornwall has long intrigued travelers. Whether you’re planning on surfing and sailing, or simply finding quiet seclusion, Cornwall offers visitors the best of everything.
North Cornwall has more rugged nature than the rest of the region, and includes the highest sheer drop cliff in England. While the north boasts a few beaches, the numerous sandy beaches of the south coast are often referred to as the Cornish Riviera. The only large city you’ll find is Truro; the rest of the peninsula is made up of open nature and small villages.
Cornwall is one of the most hopping regions in the country, especially when it comes to festivals and special events: you’ll find the freshest catch at the Annual Oyster Gathering & Seafood Harvest and the finest blossoms of the season at the Spring Flower Show. For those looking for a more cultured affair, the Fowie Festival of Words and Music is a family-friendly celebration of music and literature. And winter travelers won’t want to miss the arts and crafts at the area’s many Christmas fairs. Perhaps the best part of Cornwall’s bustling festivals?
For those who prefer the quieter side of tourism, Cornwall delivers. History buffs will want to take in at least a few of Cornwall’s many heritage sites. Our favorites include Chysauster Ancient Village and Pentillie Castle gardens – the former is much like a British Pompeii, while the latter has been described as a national treasure. And no trip to Cornwall is complete without a visit to Tintagel Castle, the official birthplace of King Arthur.
If you’re headed to Cornwall for more than history and culture, you won’t be disappointed. More adventurous travelers will relish in a daytrip to the sandy white beaches of Tresco in the Isles of Scilly, just 30 miles off the coast. Young explorers among your group will love the island’s woodlands, which are home to a variety of birds and wildlife. For water sports lovers, Tresco has its own sailing school and fishing tours open all summer long.
For those who prefer hikes to days on the beach, skip Tresco and stay on the mainland, where Conrwall’s South West Coast Path covers all 630 miles of the region’s coast. Head along from Carbis to St. Ives for a gentle 1.2 mile stroll, from Penzance to Mousehole for a more challenging 3.4 miles through the quays, and from Sennen Cove to Lamorna for a tough but rewarding 11.2 miles. Active travelers will also love the many foot and cycling paths throughout that provide a unique way to tour the coastline, take in the gentle coves, and see the granite cliffs plunging into the sea. And for those traveling with young ones in tow, you’ll find horseback riding, beaches, and petting zoos in almost every part of the region.
So what’s the best part of log cabin holidays in Cornwall? Being able to retreat back to your log cabin after a full day of taking in the fun, of course. See where you can stay to enjoy Log Cabins in Cornwall
