THE TOP 5 FAMILY PICNIC PLACES IN CORNWALL
Cornwall is the most popular family holiday destination in southern England and here we have put together our top 5 tips for you to enjoy a picnic in fantastic surroundings on the beach or in the midst of a rural idyll.
FAMILY PICNIC PLACES IN CORNWALL
1 For a picnic with a great view, we recommend Kynance Cove on the Lizard Peninsula (the ten-minute walk from the parking lot is well worth it!). Lizard Point is the southernmost point on the mainland and offers wonderful walks along the dramatic cliffs littered with wildflowers.
2 Porthcurno, Cornwall is one of the finest bays with a white sandy beach and views of the Minack Theater.
3 St Helen’s is one of the uninhabited Isles of Scilly , by boat from St Mary’s or Bryher to reach and where you can enjoy nature and especially the bird life in all its glory.
4 Carnewas and Bedruthan Steps offer spectacular views from the crest of Bedruthan Beach, the ideal place for a picnic.
5 Restmorel Castle, this ruined castle from the 13th century AD. was built above the River Fowey and offers a panoramic view of the landscape. In spring, the area is littered with beautiful daffodils and bluebells.

Fowey Hall Hotel is a family-friendly luxury hotel in a spectacular location with a view of the coastal town of Fowey on the south coast of Cornwall
It is generally believed that this historic Victorian mansion was the inspiration for Toad Hall Castle from Kenneth Grahame’s classic children’s book “The Wind in the Willows” from the early 20th century.
UrlaubCornwall visited the hotel on a beautiful, sunny day, ideal for a pleasant lunch or a drink on the garden terrace, while enjoying the wonderful lake view and a walk around the large, well-kept garden.
The individually decorated hotel rooms reflect the history of the impressive building, which was built by a timber trader who made his fortune in Canada. And of course modern luxury is not neglected either.
Families can get to know each other particularly well on holiday. Small children are offered a free hotel kindergarten and the older children and teenagers have a lot of fun in the play and cinema rooms – and the parents can relax in the 12m indoor pool with whirlpool and wellness complex. The pool and wellness facilities are located in a nice annex near the main house, where guests of all ages can take a break.
Hotel with sea view
There are casual bistro dining options for the whole family, and if parents and couples want to take a break, there is also a fine dining restaurant for dinner for two. The award-winning menus are prepared from local ingredients from land and sea and served in the Hanson’s dining room, an impressive wood-paneled room with a view of the garden.
The Fowey Hotel is ideal for a relaxing holiday in South Cornwall or just for a stopover on a trip to this beautiful part of southern England, for example if you want to visit nearby attractions such as the Eden Project or the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Tours through the south of England: On the way to Cornwall you drive through the picturesque Bodmin Moor, one of the most famous excursion destinations in Cornwall.
Bodmin Moor attracts with beautiful sights, for example the Lanhydrock House.
Horses on Bodmin Moor
Near Bodmin is Lanhydrock House (National Trust). The house wonderfully combines the relics of its architectural past. With its admirable exterior facade, the residence is enthroned in the middle of a wonderful park landscape on a hill above the Fowey River. Magnificent rooms in the house provide interesting insights into Victorian living culture. The park invites you to stroll with colorful rhododendrons and magnolias.
Another property worth seeing is in the northwest of Bodmin – Pencarrow House. A Georgian country estate, in the park and the rock and forest areas predominate Cornish-Victorian garden art. During a walk you can discover more than 600 species of rhododendrons.
In the Bodmin Moor itself you can go on beautiful hikes and are so-called from time to time "Gates" bump, these are rock formations created by weathering. In the southern area of the Bodmin Moor is the Dozmary Pool, in which, according to Arthurian legend, the Excalibur sword is said to lie after it has been returned to the Lady of the Lake. All in all, the Bodmin Moor is a wonderful area for a vacation with small children – lots of nature, fresh air and also some adventure!
TORQUAY and the "ENGLISH RIVIERA".

In addition to the busy marina, Torquay offers something for every taste: An impressive beach promenade, numerous restaurants, cafes and small shops offer many opportunities for young and old, even a classic beach holiday is possible here due to the mild temperatures. Younger visitors in particular often come to Torquay for a language study trip and enjoy the wide range of leisure activities.

South Hams Vacations
Greenway: In the 20th century, this country house on the banks of the “River Dart”, which at least on the outside was architecturally rather inconspicuous, belonged to Agatha Christie, who used it as a summer residence. Today it is open to visitors and still decorated as Agatha Christie still lived here – take a look during your tour through Cornwall …
If you want to find out more about what happened in Torquay a few hundred years ago, you can visit the so-called "Cockington Village" just outside the city.
