Cornwall’s beaches & countryside
Did you know that there are over 300 beaches in Cornwall alone? It’s hard to know where to start, but it’s also difficult to go wrong. Even if the decision is proving impossible to make, you won’t even need to leave the Tregoad Park resort to enjoy a sea view.
Outstanding natural beauty – it’s official
Cornwall famously boasts the longest coastline of any English county, at a staggering 697km (422 miles). Even more impressively, you are never more than 16 miles away from the sea while in Cornwall – so there’s no excuse not to visit the beach! Five of Cornwall’s beaches are even holders of the coveted Blue Flag – an award recognised across the world, granted to only the most well-maintained beaches amongst the 48 member nations.
Cornwall was officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty since 1959, with no fewer than 12 individual areas selected for special conservation. Eleven of these are coastal, with the exception being the ancient Bodmin Moor.
In addition to the rolling country and rugged moorland, Cornwall is famous for another type of greenery – its gardens. As well as the inimitable Eden Project, there’s Heligan and Trebah – all three of which have found worldwide acclaim. Whether you’re after somewhere dog-friendly, child-friendly, historical or beachside, you’re never far away from your perfect outdoor retreat.
