Staycation in Cornwall

Staycation in Cornwall

Have you heard about staycationing? It’s the latest buzzword for having your family holiday in Cornwall, rather than going abroad.
According to Wikipedia:”A staycation is a period in which an individual or family stays home and participates in leisure activities within driving distance, sleeping in their own beds at night. They might make day trips to local tourist sites, swimming venues, or engage in fun activities such as horseback riding, paintball, hiking or visiting museums. Most of the time it involves dining out more frequently than usual.”

What’s more is that the Guardian stated Cornwall as the top spot for staycationing in the UK, the Mirror found Cornwall as number two, and the Telegraph is a big fan too!

This is certainly true if you’re looking for self catering family accommodation in Cornwall where you can come and stay at Edens Horizon with up to 12 guests and 2 babies. Surrounded by beautiful gardens, with panoramic views over the Cornish countryside as you eat your meals together round the dining table, it’s a perfect home away from home. There are lots of delicious restaurants to try including Wreckers at Charlestown, Sams on the Beach and cosy pubs to sample the local Tribute beer from St Austell Brewery. There’s lots of activities including a tour around St Austell Brewery, the Eden Project, Dairyland, and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

There are lots of reasons as to why holidays in Cornwall might be more appealing than going abroad: There’s no airport hassle, you don’t need your passport, and there are no luggage allowances!
