Kenny’s top 5 beauty spots to visit this year in Cornwall
With the delightful news that the Cornwall Wildlife Trust has spent £340,000 to create two brand new nature reserves I thought I'd give you some insight into to take a look at the top five Cornish beauty spots to see on your next visit to holiday homes in Cornwall.
Coverack, near the Tolroy Manor Holiday Park is one of my favourite fishing villages with its idyllic views that offers all of those picture-postcard moments for visitors. It's a genuine picturesque fishing village.
For me, when I visit the village I feel like I'm taking a pleasant step back into years gone by, so it's a perfect place to visit on a self-catering Cornwall holiday for chaps like me.
Bostraze Bog and Bartinney Downs
These two sites, both lovely spots near to the Trelawne Manor Holiday Park, are set to become the newest nature reserves in Cornwall once the Trust's work is finished.
Bostraze Bog, near St Just, is a simply magnificent stretch of moor that includes ancient ruins, while Bartinney Downs provides the lazy gazers like me with some amazing views out to sea.
I have included Sennen Cove because it's one of my favourite places in the Cornwall and also close to Trelawne Manor Holiday Park.
The cove, with its lifeguarded beach, the lifeguards there do a fantastic job too, although they don't dress like they did in my day. Sennen is also home to the last village before you reach the destination of many a visitor- Land's End.
The beauty and romance that Sennen brings is simply magical.
Gwithian and Godrevy
We have a pair of superb beaches on our hands when I talk about Gwithian and Godrevy. They're two of the cleanest in Cornwall don't you know!
Just over a 10 minute drive away from the Tolroy Manor Holiday Park They were once stained red by the tin mining that occurred when I was a young chap so the clean-up has been quite the success.
A plethora of views from the beach include a vista of St Ives Bay and the Godrevy Island lighthouse, which was the inspiration for Virginia Woolf's To The Lighthouse.
The Eden Project
I thought I should include something more 'modern' for you youngsters. The Eden Project is close by to both Killigarth Manor Holiday Park and Trelawne Manor Holiday Park and although it doesn't fall into the category of a beach but it's certainly filled with a fantastic array of natural wonders.
The way the twin biomes and thousands of genus of plants and flowers sit in the crater formed by a long redundant mine has a strange beauty all of its own and you simply cannot visit to Cornwall without a trip to the project.
