If it's adventure you're after, we've got it in buckets and spades!
Here's an overview of all the activities you can do locally...
Obviously, surfing is top of the list of activities to try on your holiday here (for lessons, visit the Beaches page). But when it comes to water-based activities, Cornwall has so much more to offer! Have a go at SUP or surfing with Wavehunters at Polzeath Beach. Or join Cornish Rock Tors in Port Gaverne on their coasteering, kayaking or sea swimming experiences. If you prefer fresh water to salt, just south of Camelford you’ll find the Giant Slip N Slide, open through summer.
Padstow Sealife Safaris will take you on one, two and three hour trips to spot seals, hundreds of sea birds and if you’re very lucky, dolphins too, along the stunning coastline from Padstow. There are several suppliers doing boat trips and fishing trips from points along the coast including Rock Fishing Trips.
Bodmin Moor AONB is surrounded in folkore and mysticism. Walk to Rough Tor (pronounced r-ow-ter) – the second highest peak in Cornwall after nearby Brown Willy – directly from the farm or explore by car. See roaming ponies, discover waterfalls and walk around ancient stone circles. For the more adventurous, there are climbing and abseiling opportunities or a gentler guided tours of this rugged country.
If you like to find your food, join Emma the Forager on a foraging experience. Her walks cover woodland, coastline and hedgerows throughout the seasons. Or get in touch with Matt at Cornish Wild Food who can take you on a group or private walk to find and skillfully cook your dinner, exciting you with his knowledge of British plants, molluscs and game.
Hire bikes for the whole family from Camel Trail Bikes in Wadebridge and spend the day on the Camel Trail which follows the old railway line from Bodmin to Padstow. It’s a really popular day out for many of our guests.
As well as exploring Bodmin Moor, we have the 600-mile long South West Coast Path just a few miles away. But you don’t have to do it all, there are some lovely sections and very achievable loop walks for a day out. Many of which deserve a stop in a pub for lunch, like the Port William at Trebarwith Strand
If you prefer to get around on four legs, you can book a lesson at Lakefield Equestrian just outside Camelford. They welcome riders of all abilities and ages and are a registered BHS and RDA centre.
