With such a diverse range of landscapes and coastal riches, the south-western county of Cornwall is a popular spot for 'outdoorsy' holidaymakers. All year round, the hills and beaches offer plenty for tourists to see and do. Accordingly, visitors can expect a wealth of adventure sport hotels in Cornwall.
Surf Shacks and Hotels
One of the biggest attractions of the county of Cornwall is its surf. No matter what time of year, there's usually a decent break at a beach nearby. From seasoned veterans looking to test their mettle on the natural reefs to fair-weather beginners looking to get on their feet for the first time, all surfers need somewhere nice to stay by the beach.
Newquay is undoubtedly the surfing hub of the county, with a selection of beaches offering a variety of different breaks. The Atlantic Hotel boasts an excellent seafront location, within easy reach of Fistral and Towan beaches. With an indoor pool, spa and sauna, the term 'shack' may be selling it a little short!
Further up the coast in Bude, there are plenty of intimate seaside B&Bs and guest houses. Tommy Jacks offers up a relaxed atmosphere within easy reach of Bude beach and Crooklets Beach. Meanwhile, the Beach House offers unrivalled views out over the bay.
Seeing The County On Foot
You don't have to get wet to have an adventure in Cornwall. Beyond the rugged cliffs, the extensive Moor at Bodmin also provides ample walking for visitors of all abilities.
Trehellas House Hotel and Restaurant is located in Washaway, a short way out of Bodmin. In addition to providing access to a host of great walking trails, the rural setting is also not far from the coast. There's also an outdoor pool to relax by on your days off.
Niche Adventure Sports
All fans of adventure sports like to mix things up from time to time. If the swells aren't rolling in, there's plenty more fun to be had around Cornwall. The rolling hills of the Moor provide a breath-taking setting for a spot of paragliding. If you're staying near the coast, why not try your hand at kite-surfing or kayaking?
