Cornwall is a foodie hot spot with so many great places to get your hands on the best local treats! Here are just a few places you should really try and get to when you are visiting or even if you are lucky enough to live here – Lets kick things of with breakfast!
Duke street café is in the heart of the historic town of Newlyn, they serve fresh coffee and a nice range of options including traditional, veggie and vegan breakfasts as well as bagels, sandwiches and other options. (oh, and a very nice homemade cake selection)
Visit the beaches
One of the most popular reasons to visit Cornwall is for its world-famous award-winning beaches. There is plenty of options with over 300 beaches dotted around the Cornish coast, from golden sand that stretches for miles to small, sheltered coves, Cornwall has them all, the small fishing town of St Ives has 5 all to itself!
There is 5 beachs!
Porthminster – With the perfect location right next to the train station, Porthminster is a long sandy beach and its nicely sheltered so usually stays quite calm. The beach is lucky enough to have an amazing restaurant right on the sand, Porthminster beach café is known for serving fine food right on the beachfront.
Harbour beach – Situated within the thick granite harbour walls this is actually still a working harbour. This is the most central beach right in the heart of St Ives surrounded by cafes, shops, and restaurants. Including St Ives oldest pub ‘The Sloop’. The harbour walls keep the beach sheltered and the waters calm enough to swim but watch out for boats!
Porthmeor – Just Infront of the world-famous Tate gallery lies the golden sand of Porthmeor beach, there is a surf school on the beach and Porthmeor café enjoys amazing views of the Atlantic ocean.
Porthgwidden – A sandy cove on the opposite side of the headland to Porthmeor, not quite as crowded and a bit more spacious than the harbour beach makes it the perfect sunbathing spot. Some great facilities include Porthgwidden café, snack shop and there’s even beach huts for hire!
Bamaluz – Around the corner from Porthgwidden is the almost secret beach which is only accessible at low tide via steep steps. A small quiet beach which is ideal for those early morning swims.

Built in 1435 the old quay in Newlyn is a medieval quay and was the final port of the famous mayflower on its voyage to America, stopping of to pick up fresh water. Built to protect the harbour from wild sees and even wilder pirates, over the centuries Newlyn and neighbouring Penzance were victims of countless pirate raids, continuing until the late 1800’s. The old quay is no longer in use for commercial fishing as Newlyn has expanded its harbour and become one of the largest working harbours in the UK.

Starting from the bottom
Carpets! Let's be honest its inevitable there will be an accident at some point, so it may pay to get rid of the carpets at least on the ground floor perhaps. A lot of holiday let owners ask to keep the pups downstairs allowing them to have nice cosy carpets in the bedrooms upstairs. Keeping carpets is risky as they will hold odours and fur causing extra cleaning time, and time is money so it may pay to look for alternative floor coverings. High quality laminate with good scratch resistance is a great cost-effective option.
Fistral - Newquay
The world famous Fistral beach, arguably the most popular beach for surfing in Cornwall. Plenty of facilities for a day out including surfboard hire, cafes and a nearby golf course. Dogs are allowed here all year round and there is a 250-space car park.
