Top 5 Cornwall family destinations

Hi,

We are looking for a coastal Cornwall destination for our family this year and wondered what the top 3 or 5 places to stay are?

1. Re: Top 5 Cornwall family destinations

That's a difficult one, not seen an actual poll of the top places and, if you are asking individuals, then their top 5 places are going to vary greatly. I like, in no particular order, Gwithian/Hayle, Marazion, St Ives/Carbis Bay, Porthleven, Mullion/The Lizard.

There was an article in The Guardian that rated St Ives as the fourth best holiday destination in the world (not just in the UK) - dailymail.co.uk/news/article-355941/Cornish-…

I think it is pretty perfect and I keep going back to that area of Cornwall. I have been to others. I prefer the South because I find it less crowded and just love it there.

Falmouth, Fowey and Perranporth all worth a look.

Cornwall is a lovely place with lots of little places to stay & visit. Just stay away from Newquay unless you like large groups of drunken men looking for fights
