A truly breath-taking location to explore, just a short stroll from the golden sands of Portreath beach, and luxury holiday accommodation to relax in afterwards, a break at Landal Gwel an Mor is a perfect self-contained break.
But venture further afield and there are loads of hidden holiday gems to enjoy too. We don’t want to spoil all your holiday surprises, but here are five must-visit locations to make your amazing holiday even better!
Cape Cornwall, Land’s End Peninsula
One of Cornwall’s most westerly points, this is where two channels converge. This makes it the only cape in England.
Pay a visit and enjoy amazing views from the headland, spot wildlife (bonus points for the rare chough) or get active with a wonderful wander or a trip on the Tin Coast Cycle trail. There are few better places where history and beauty converge so brilliantly!
The Sorting Office, St Agnes
More quirky culinary charms can be found in this former post office. Located in the village of St Agnes, the Tardis-like exterior masks a welcoming inside where great coffee and delectable treats await your arrival.
Another great thing about this locations is its unassuming exterior; it’s the very definition of a hidden holiday gem! Make sure you take some cakes home to eat at your leisure. Don’t worry, there are loads of fun activities at Landal Gwel an Mor to burn off the calories afterwards.
A walk along these stunning river falls is also one of the best ways to work off The Sorting Office’s sweet treats. Flowing through ancient woodland you will see deep falls and beautiful cascades.
The surrounding scenery is simply stunning, with wildflowers and gorgeous views aplenty. You can also see some spectacular wildlife with birds, bats and freshwater fish all calling this amazing area home.
Ssssh, this one is such a secret that we had to bury it at the bottom of the article. Nanjizal is a truly beautiful beach, but if you want to appreciate its scenic charms you will have to work for it! There’s no road access, so you need to take a walk to get there.
As it’s located on the South West Coast Path, you probably won’t begrudge a scenic wander, especially when you see what’s waiting for you. Secret caves, rock pools, the iconic ‘Song of the Sea’ arch plus loads more scenic beauty and tranquillity await. Make sure you bring a camera and remember to keep it a secret!
The Ferry Boat Inn, Falmouth
Overlooking the River Helford, you can enjoy its catch of the day at this cosy waterside pub. Dating back 300 years, it’s as much a historical attraction as it is a wonderful gastro pub.
And when you’ve finished your food and drink you can feast your eyes on the view. Slow food doesn’t get much slower, but when the welcome is as warm as this, you really won’t mind.
