Kids Days Out In Cornwall

Cornwall is one of the most beautiful counties in England, with 2 distinctive coastlines - the more rugged one in the north with breathtaking cliffs and open beaches where surfers from all over Britain head for. On the south coast the pace is more gentle with plenty of sheltered coves and child friendly beaches. Near the south coast you will find many historic gardens.

Besides the sandy beaches there are many outdoor activities and things to do in Cornwall including sea fishing, sea trips and many fine walks along the coast - our favourite is the one way walk from Zennor to St Ives - about 10 miles so only for the hardy. There are also lots of things to do for the kids and even if you live in Devon you can have a day out as most parts can be reached in an hour or so.
