Cornwall has long been one of the most popular UK holiday destinations. Padstow Caravan Hire is ideally situated for you to make the most of your Cornwall holidays, with all the comfort of a modern static caravan.
So what brings people back to have their Cornwall Holidays time and again?
Well, the climate is certainly the mildest in the UK but our summers aren’t the hottest! So it must be a combination of natural attractions and a renaissance in arts and food in Cornwall, especially Padstow, with Rick Stein’s influence.
Cornwall’s beaches are unrivalled elswhere in Britain for their beauty and variety. Beach towns such as Perranporth, Polzeath and Newquay are perhaps the best known of these, they are also excellent surfing beaches.
Towns and Villages
On the coast are some of the Duchy’s most enchanting fishing villages and harbours; Padstow, Looe, Portloe, Mevagissey, Tintagel, Cadgwith, Zennor and Mousehole are but a few.
It’s not just the villages that have something to offer those sightseeing. The towns of Cornwall are rich in history and attractions of their own. The picturesque harbour of Padstow with shops, bistros and restaurants. Falmouth – a working port and charming shopping town. There is Truro, the only city in Cornwall where the cathedral still dominates the skyline. For industrial herritage Redruth has few rivals. Once at the centre of the industrial revolution and the mining industry Redruth and Camborne have spent many years in decline but are finally bouncing back. Penzance is one of the largest towns in Cornwall and has plenty to do and see. From the sub-tropical Morrab Gardens to the bustling fishing port of Newlyn you should find something of interest. It is also here that you can take a day trip to the Isles of Scilly plus it’s within walking distance of Marazion and St Michael’s Mount.
Public Houses and Gardens
The National Trust is very active in Cornwall and along with a host of independently owned tourist attractions you should find plenty to see and do.
Gardens worthy of mention include; The Lost Gardens of Heligan, The Eden Project, Trelissick and Trebah. Stately homes include; Lanhydrock house, Prideaux Place and Pencarrow.
another unique draw of Cornwall is it’s ancient past. The moorland countryside of West Cornwall and Bodmin Moor are littered with megalithic monuments such as standing stones, barrows and stone circles. Less ancient ruins that abound in Kernow are old mining engine houes, in many places these share the same sites the ancients chose to build on creating strange juxtapositions.
