Hi guys,

We’re thinking of spending this year’s annual summer holiday, in our own home county of Cornwall. Basically, It’s much more affordable, and environmentally friendly to not need to use aviation travel to get to destinations abroad. We moved down from London around 10 years ago, and still haven’t really discovered all the treats that Cornwall has to offer.Does anybody here have any ideas of where to stay? :wink:Thanks! Anna.

Hi anna
Environment friendly accomodation providers in The Duchy (not county) of Cornwall can be found here
One of my favorite Cornish owned campsites here 400 years the same family have owned the farm...

@sha’zron - I was looking at those sites earlier funnily enough!I’m thinking of going to ‘Little Trevarrack' (http://www.littletrevarrack.co.uk/), which is based in St. Ives. It looks picturesque, and there looks to be loads to do.Anna

You should be OK anywhere - except Newquay.  Avoid like the plague.

Newquay in August, this is with the tide out & all the beaches are like this!
Shame Newquay has some of the most fantastic beaches in Cornwall - best time to visit is winter & spring, the Fish Festival in September is good & the most Cornish event in Newquay...

All that is true, Shaz, and I've always seen it as a tragedy _ Newquay does indeed have fantastic beaches and cliff scenery.  Sadly, over the past 4 or 5 decades, businesses within the town (few of which are locally owned) have geared Newquay into a lager-louts' paradise.
The up-side of that is that this rarely spills into other Cornish locations (except Rock, where you get the hooray-Henry equivalents of the lager-louts).

Hi,if you are interested in staying in St Ives then it could be worth checking out The Sail Lofts which are located just off Porthmeor beach. Its great as its away from the carnage of Newquay but there is still plenty to do and the accommodation is absolutely fabulous.
