If the outdoor life appeals to you then you are spoilt for choice on activities to fill your days with in Cornwall. Walking, fishing, cycling or just painting the scenery, you will find something to suit every one of all ages and abilities.


Cornwall , with the longest coastline in Britain has so much to offer people who want to venture out and see the sites that Cornwall has on offer. Ancient paths, lanes and rights of ways that were established by the miners, fishermen and farm workers over the centuries, as well many remote moorland hikes and cliff top walks with stunning views.

Should you desire an exciting adventure or just a peaceful meander, you can find them all with a choice of 630 superb miles, and a lot more besides, on the South West Coast Path.

Here you can choose a walk that will suit your walking abilities and desires.


With the temperamental weather habits of Cornwall, a good pair of sturdy boots and an anorak are always an essential; but the weather is what keeps Cornwall’s look and feel changing continually, so it’s always quite exciting to revisit places that delighted you previously, or it will do should you come back. Don’t forget the camera for capturing the true delights when making your tracks!



The beaches in Cornwall have the well established reputation of being ‘the best and most beautiful in England’ and it’s clear to see why. With almost 300 miles of coastline, nine river estuaries and 300 beaches, you’ll be spoilt for choice. There’s a large variety of quality beaches, from busy family beaches to popular water sports venues, each characterised by the make up of coves, inlets, strands, cliffs, headlands, points, islets and islands. These great expanses of golden sands, miles of sand dunes, hidden coves, famous spots and infamous places are all waiting to be explored.

The golden sands are the canvas to so many people’s holidays, being ideal for a day basking in the suns rays, or getting exhilarated in the sea surfing, waterskiing or taking a leisurely boat trip around the contours of the beaches. It’s an ideal escape for everyone.



Fishing has always been the integral part of Cornish life, so it’s the ideal place to try and land some of Cornwall’s finest produce. Cornwall offers excellent trout, salmon, coarse and sea angling for everyone from beginners to advanced.



Cycling in Cornwall is possible whether you’ve packed your bike or not. The Camel Trail, Wadebridge, is a very popular cycle path. It follows the line of a disused and resurfaced railway.

Bike hire is available both at the Wadebridge and Padstow ends. It is a fantastic way to see the surrounding wildlife.



Cornwall boasts a fine selection of golf courses to suit all tastes and pockets; from the truly outstanding championship courses at St. Mellion, to others with superb views such as the China Fleet Club, which offers a lot more than just golf should other members of your family need persuasion.


For families with children who aren’t ready for the full golfing experience, Cornwall has plenty of crazy golf courses to excite all; or even if you are a serious golfer, there’s time here to have some family fun.
