Unsurprisingly, Cornwall topped the list of the most popular post-lockdown destinations for short breaks in 2020. This county has so much to offer for all tastes and throughout the year.
You can spend your time visiting colorful fishing villages, hiking on rugged coastal paths, or Surfing on white-sand beaches. If food is your raison d’être you will be in heaven in Cornwall. You can dine in style in a fancy restaurant (it’s the county of Rick Stein and Paul Ainsworth ), eat fresh fish from the harbour, or indulge in the finest cream tea at a local bakery.
Whatever you do, expect a laid-back and stress-free holiday in Cornwall. This simple lifestyle is what makes Cornwall a unique destination and the reason I keep going back whenever I need a break from city life.
Last Autumn I spent a long weekend in South East Cornwall and it was the most relaxing trip I’ve had in a while. Here is my pick of the top 5 activities to do on a staycation in Cornwall.
5 ACTIVITIES TO DO ON A STAYCATION IN South East CORNWALL
Looe is a little fishing town in Southeast Cornwall, divided into two parts by the River Looe. East Looe and West Looe once existed as separate towns with their very own Royal Charters. The two parts sit opposite each other and are connected by a bridge and ferries. West Looe is more residential therefore quieter while East Looe features a collection of narrow streets dotted with little shops, restaurants, and coffee shops.
Looe is a popular holiday destination and gets very busy in the summer but if you visit out of season you get an authentic sense of the place.
