We attempt to visit Cornwall at least once a year. with it being a 6 hour car journey away, it feels like a great option for a staycation. It’s somewhere I can definitely see myself living in years to come. With it’s beautiful crystal clear water, rolling countryside, sandy beaches and seaside villages – it has everything you could possibly want and more for family-friendly holidays in Cornwall. Here are a few of our favourite spots to visit!
St Michael’s Mount
We had heard all about St Michael’s Mount, and after being to Cornwall several times, we figured it would be about time we visited. It was absolutely beautiful. We spent a couple of hours sitting by the sea, wandering over to the castle whilst the tide was out and fishing around in rock pools! We took lots of photos, ran about and got a little windswept. The weather was perfect and it was an evening I’ll always remember. Definitely pop St Michael’s Mount on your list of places to visit in Cornwall.
The Minack Theatre
When I think of heading to a theatre with a 4 year old, I can’t help but get a little anxious. However, when I realised that The Minack Theatre in Cornwall is an open air theatre on the edge of a beautiful cliff in Porthcurno, I couldn’t wait! What could be better? Whilst staying in Penzance we hopped in the car and drove the 15 minute journey to watch ‘The Lonely Lighthouse Keeper’, we had no idea what to expect but had heard great things. The Minack Theatre is one of the word’s top 10 open air experiences according to The Lonely Planet and so we knew we’d be in for a treat. You can read my full post reviewing The Minack Theatre here.
St Ives and Mousehole
If you know Cornwall, then I’m pretty sure you know St Ives. It’s a beautiful seaside town with golden sand and crystal clear water. I couldn’t love it anymore if I tried. Another place we enjoy visiting is Mousehole. This little seaside town is very similar to St Ives but with less crowds – it’s a little more secluded but definitely worth a visit if you enjoyed St Ives. We spent a lot of time here, on the beach and strolling around the village, taking in the beautiful English countryside.
There are so many gorgeous places for family-friendly holidays in Cornwall. If it’s somewhere you’ve never been then I cannot recommend visiting enough. Be sure to check out all my other Cornwall posts whilst browsing!
