With their exotic gardens, ancient houses and mining history, encircled by a much loved coastline, you’ll find plenty to see and do in August at Cornwall’s National Trust locations. Just to name a few try Lanhydrock House, Bedruthan Steps, Kynance Cove and Trerice House.
With over 300 beaches accessible by foot, there really are plenty of options when choosing which Cornish beach to explore. Whether you are looking for a hidden cove, a beach backed by white sanded dunes or those with fun rock pools and streams for the little ones, Cornwall has something for everyone. See a full list of beaches here.
Watch the pros from the shoreline or give it a go yourself with one of Cornwall’s many watersports schools. Watergate Bay’s Extreme Academy offers surfing, kitesurfing and SUP lessons and hire among others. Or try King Surf at Mawgan Porth, St Ives Surf School on Porthmeor Beach, and Sennen Surfing Centre on Sennen.
