The golden light of West Cornwall gives the cobbled streets and whitewashed fishermen’s cottages an inviting glow. Relax and get some inspiration during one of our West Cornwall holidays when you visit Cornwall.
West Cornwall features a great mix of large towns and smaller fishing villages which offer a beautiful contrast in this fantastic location. The historic city of Truro coupled with the town of Redruth offer excellent shopping facilities during your holiday, or for a short break in the county. In comparison, locations such as Mousehole and Polperro give visitors the chance to explore and unwind at a much more relaxing pace, watch the fishing boats roll in and enjoy freshly caught seafood in one of the many cafes and restaurants here. The beautiful town of St Ives can also be found in the region of West Cornwall and is often referred to as the cultural hub of the South West with attractions such as the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Museum found there. Popular towns such as Falmouth and Penzance can also be found in West Cornwall.
On that theme, West Cornwall is arguably one of the best locations for a family holiday in Cornwall due to the wealth of attractions and things to do that can be found in the county. One of the most famous attractions in the region is the world famous Land’s End landmark where you are able to explore the tip of the most westerly point in the UK. Similarly, Helston is home to the Flambards theme park where the whole family can enjoy a fantastic day out. On the southern coast of the region is where you will find the town of Marazion and the unique St Michael’s Mount which is an island with an imposing castle alongside a beautiful subtropical garden atop of it and can be reached by walking along the causeway at low tide. A beautiful and unique attraction close to Porthcurno is the Minack Theatre, a stunning outdoor theatre.
For dog friendly holidays in Cornwall, West Cornwall offers fantastic coastal walks, particularly around Hayle where you can reach Godrevy Point and Sennen. These walking routes provide visitors with dramatic and breath-taking views across the sea and offer something spectacular at all times of the year. During the peak season, some of the more popular beaches will have dog restrictions in place so be sure to check these before you set off so that you don’t get caught out while you are there. It is also a beautiful location for romantic holidays or for short breaks.
