Penzance is perfect for a family holiday if you enjoy taking in history and culture on your getaways! The historic market town is on the coast and has stunning views over beautiful Mounts Bay along with a pretty promenade where you can take in the views.
There are lots of shops and galleries to visit along with restaurants, children’s playgrounds and stunning Celtic surroundings.
The Penlee House Gallery and Newlyn Gallery are a must for art lovers. For a fun day trip, take the Scillonian boat that sails to the Isle of Scilly.
Polperro is perhaps one of the most picturesque harbour villages you will find in Cornwall. With the narrow winding streets with old stone cottages and the harbour still busy with fishermen boats, you almost feel like you’re back in the days of pirates and buried treasure in this beautiful Cornish village.
There are plenty of pubs, cafes, gift shops, art galleries and sweet shops selling local fudge to keep you occupied. There is also good access to the coastal path if you fancy a walk with dramatic scenery.
St Ives remains incredibly popular for family holidays and it’s easy to see why with the picturesque harbour area, four beautiful beaches and endless cafes, restaurants, shops and galleries.
St Ives has a fabulously cosmopolitan feel on summer evenings when the shops are open late and families enjoy Cornwall’s culinary delights of fresh seafood and fish in the outdoors.
There’s so much to explore, with winding cobbled streets and old fisherman cottages. It’s also popular for surfing and if you have keen painters in the family, you’ll find lots of inspiration with the endless scenic views across the bays.
If you’re a family of foodies, look no further than Padstow for your next staycation! Famous for being home to Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant, you’ll enjoy plenty of fresh, locally sourced produce here. You can even enjoy Rick Stein’s more humble fish n chips by the seaside!
After eating all that food, burn some of that energy off with a fun filled day on one of the seven nearby beaches with plenty of activities to try! From rock pooling, body boarding, learning to surf with a local surf school and you could even do the classic seaside activity of building sandcastles.
