Why Cornwall Is The Perfect Destination For A Family Holiday

Disclosure - This is a collaborative post.

Planning a holiday in the UK is becoming more and more popular and I can understand why. The UK has so much to offer including stunning beaches, historic castles, gardens and woodlands to explore and theme parks. If you are looking for it all in one holiday then Cornwall is the perfect destination for a family holiday. 

Cornwall beach

It would be hard to visit Cornwall and not stumble across one of its beautiful beaches. There are over 300 beaches to explore and they all vary so you can take your pick. Enjoy miles of golden sands, or you can explore small coves which are perfect for small and big adventurers. Visit one of the many family friendly beaches or if taking your dog you can enjoy dog friendly beaches too. Some of Cornwalls beaches are busier than others however there are quieter ones that are perfect for relaxing and taking in the stunning scenery. 

St Michaels Mount

Visiting a castle can be fun for all the family and in Cornwall you have 8 to choose from. The most popular choice is Tintagel Castle which is situated on the North Coast. Tintagel Castle is full of history with it said to be the birthplace of King Arthur. The castle provides hours of enjoyment and stunning views of the north coastline and Tintagel beach. Another favourite is St Michael's Mount in the West. St Michael's Mount can be reached by boat or you can walk during low tide. There is lots of history to uncover, a sub-tropical terraced garden to explore and stunning views of Mounts Bay to enjoy.

A visit to Newquay Zoo is a great choice for animal lovers. Be prepared to see lions, lemurs, penguins, red pandas and so much more. You can also visit the Tropical House which is home to sloths, poisoned dart frogs and species of birds from around the globe. There are also lots of places to spot otters, seals and even dolphins in Cornwall so plan a visit to a coastal reserve.

Eden project

The Eden Project
Visit the Rainforest Biome to experience the smells and sights of the rainforest. The Eden Project is the size of 30 football pitches and where you discover tropical plants, gardens and waterfalls. Take a walk across the rainforest canopy which takes you above the treetops, smell the orange and lemon tress or enjoy the world class sculpture and art. 

Theme Parks
If a day at a theme park is something you enjoy then you will be pleased to know there is not one but two theme parks in Cornwall. Camel Creek Adventure Park and Flambards Theme park have a huge range of rides and attractions suitable for all the family. They both have indoor attractions to enjoy also on the gloomier days.
