Need a short break and a quick holiday fix? North Cornwall is a suburb base for exploring the surrounding area and makes a great choice for short stays. Why? We are so glad you asked!
A fast cure for stress – North Cornwall’s laid back atmosphere is a hit with many city dwellers who visit us for a change of pace. The area might be a bit further away from most places in the country, but you won’t find anywhere else that offers the same laid-back ambience, by the coast and in the UK. The Point Holidays provides great access to some of the most popular beaches in the county and indeed the country, with nearby Polzeath, Rock and Daymer Bay just a short stroll away from all our hand-picked accommodation.
Surf culture – Polzeath in particular is a surfer’s paradise with a life-guarded beach, so family surf and bodyboarding excursions are on the cards. Surfers from Exeter, Bristol and Cardiff have short surfing breaks down to a tee, frequently visiting for the weekend to surf the best waves in the UK.
It’s surrounded by many great places – The area is surrounded by a vast array of different types of scenery and things to do, making it the perfect base for those who want to cover lots of ground during their short stay. A day out during a short break could involve visiting the quaint fishing towns of Port Isaac and Padstow, going back in time at Tintagel Castle or exploring the 270 miles of South West Coast Path scattered with hidden treasures and wildflowers, or even the rugged landscapes of Bodmin Moor.
But if you want to stay local during your visit – You can still enjoy yourself and you will not be missing out. Polzeath has plenty to offer, from the nearby beaches, water sports and beautiful walks. The Point at Polzeath offer families and couples amazing food, tennis, golf, yoga and spinning with the most scenic of views and much more. Rock has an amazing offering of sailing and water sports on offer as well as top eateries and a direct ferry link to nearby Padstow.
You don’t need to leave the UK for a sense of change – You will find that North Cornwall feels worlds apart from anything else the UK has to offer, the county has its own language after all. Sunsets and warm temperatures embellish the scenery of palm trees and coast. Even during the winter months, the sub-tropical climate means higher-than-average temperatures, so you can swap the city and the inland frost for some mild sea air.
Something for everyone – When people think of Cornwall, the buzzword is usually ‘beach’ – but it is so much more than that. North Cornwall is perfectly positioned to discover the best things about the county – the cultural offering attracts many, from the Eden Project to the historic church of St Enodoc. Sabine-Baring-Gould described Cornwall as ‘one of England’s most interesting counties, whether we regard it for its coast scenery, its products or its antiquities’. We most certainly agree with you Sabine.
