Getting out and about and dining in Cornwall

Katy Peck

With the Christmas break well and truly over and now a distant memory, my mind is racing with opportunities to make the most out of this beautiful county in 2016 that I am lucky enough to call home by booking my very own stay-cation…
Just because some of us are fortunate enough to live in one of the world's most desirable holiday destinations doesn’t mean we make enough time to get out there and enjoy its miles of golden sandy beaches, breathtaking coastal walks, stunning quintessentially British villages and harbours, or take in the diversity of nature that calls this south-west pinnacle home.

Walking in Cornwall

Striding out of the Sail Lofts luxury accommodation in Cornwall located in St Ives you can head in either direction along the coast path and you will find two incredibly varied landscapes. Head east and you will find yourself walking the St Ives bay round into Lelant and along to Godrevy Lighthouse, where you can find hidden coves with slumbering seals, and miles of golden sand dunes.

Eating in Cornwall

Cornwall’s restaurants are amongst some of the best in Britain for producing some of the freshest dishes with produce harvested within the county grown in most cases just down the road and with fish caught straight out of the sea in the morning and on your plate in the afternoon. You cannot beat the taste of seasonal, fresh food. St Ives has a wealth of such award-winning restaurants, all within a short stroll of the Sail lofts luxury apartments in Cornwall.

Attractions in Cornwall

Falmouth is a bustling commercial fishing town, home to one of the deepest natural harbours in the world and renown Arts University, which is currently ranked within the Top 3 Arts University’s in the country. The town has a host of wonderful shops, traditional Ale taverns, museums and art galleries. For instance the Falmouth Art Gallery, open all year houses a vast collection of modern and traditional Cornish artists including the likes of Henry Scott Tuke and Charles Napier Hemy, both of which made the town home during some of their most active years of painting.
In contrast marking the town's maritime heritage is the National Maritime Museum with interactive displays introducing you to the legacy of Viking Norse men and women along with a reconstruction of a Viking boatyard complete with six metre long Viking boat.
