Holidays in Mid Cornwall

Believe it or not, Cornwall’s not all about the coast; there’s some stunning scenery inland just waiting to be explored. Whilst Cornwall is known for its rolling coastlines and sweeping sands, some of the best and most beautiful parts of the county can be found inland. Including quaint villages and country pubs, golden fields strewn with hay bales, woodland walks with meandering streams, rocky moors and heritage mines.

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of winding through country lanes, trees arching above and Cornish hedgerows lining either side of the twisting lanes. Deep in the countryside, you’ll find old Cornish villages, each with their individual characteristics, and usually home to the village pub and church. With interesting names and a unique history, the villages of inner Cornwall differ quite significantly to their nearby coastal villages. 

Whether it’s rural farmland, gorse and heather covered moors or mining relics, there’s an abundance of things to do and see. That said, if you do fancy a day at the beach, you’ll never be more than a short drive away from the coast wherever you choose to stay. You’ll also have the added benefit of being close to both coastlines, which whilst very different, are equally beautiful; head to the south coast and discover green hills that roll down to the shoreline, sandy coves and bays and exotic sub-tropical gardens, or explore the north coast, where you’ll find rugged cliffs hugging spectacular beaches and landscape transformed by tin and copper mining.

Did you know...

that Cornwall is so narrow that even our most inland properties are no more than 15 miles from the sea?

Things to do

Truro 

Truro is Cornwall’s only city, it’s the most southern city in Great Britain. Truro is easily accessible by Train from a number of stations in Mid Cornwall, such as Redruth, Camborne, Par, and St Austell. This direct line from London Paddington arrived in Truro in the 1860’s. With a selection of high street and boutique shops, it’s the best place to shop in Cornwall. Why not consider booking tickets for a show at The Hall for Cornwall while you’re in Cornwall?

Tehidy Country Park

Tehidy has over 9 miles of paths and 250 acres of woods and lakes to explore. Stop off at the café after your walk for a coffee and a slice of homemade cake. Tehidy was formally the estate of the Bassets, it was sold in 1915.

Retallack Aqua Park and FlowRider

Located at Retallack Resort and Spa, the aqua park is a total wipe out style inflatable obstacle course – perfect for a fun packed afternoon (re-opens Saturday 31st March 2018). Retallack is also home to the county’s only FlowRider, bringing you perfect waves, every day of the week!

Eden Project

One of Cornwall’s most famous attractions, and home to two biomes housing a rainforest and Mediterranean eco system. Visit the Eden Project and you’ll also find sculptures, outdoor gardens, trails and children’s activities, ice-skating (Oct – Feb), Hangloose adventures (including England’s longest and fastest zip wire) and a selection of cafes and bars. 

The Lost Gardens Of Heligan

One of the most popular botanical gardens in the UK, The Lost Gardens of Heligan was opened in 1992. The members of the Tremayne Family created the gardens from the mid-18th century to the beginning of the 20th century, the gardens are still part of the family’s estate today.

Lappa Valley

St Nectan's Waterfalls

In an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is this hidden gem, a spectacular 60 foot waterfall set into the rocks. Take the time to visit this magical place and explore the woodland walks. 

For those seeking an element of culture, there’s a range of different cultural attractions throughout Cornwall, well worth visiting, including: Pencarrow House and Gardens, Lanhydrock House, Bodmin Jail and Poldark Mine.

What our guests say...

We know how important honest reviews are when it comes to booking your holiday. To help you choose the right property for you, we publish all reviews left by guests who have stayed here in the past, with the few exceptions stated in our Review Guidelines. Please bear in mind that some facilities referred to by past guests in reviews can be removed or changed at any time.

Pros; Log Burner, lovely garden with bistro set & sun loungers, distant views, cosy living room, rustic charm, rural, village setting, lovely local pub.

Cons; Kitchen & shower room were grubby upon arrival, had to clean these in order to use these facilities. Aspects handled this matter well & issued a partial refund. Ironing board fabric was also dirty. Aspects kindly replaced this with a new one during our stay. Shower pressure poor - more of a trickle. Shower cubicle is flimsy & ventilation poor in a room without a window. Shower room & toilet are downstairs whilst bedrooms are on the 1st floor (tricky with night time loo trips). Front door opens right onto the road. We had a power cut from 7pm until midnight one evening & discovered the property had no emergency lighting, not even a candle. Some windows (front) were ill fitting & impossible to open.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review. The team were already in contact at the time to resolve everything and once again, we are very sorry that the property had not been cleaned to the very high standards that you would expect, and that the ironing board had been left in that condition. This is certainly not what you should expect and that was all fed back to the owner and their housekeeper at the time, to try and ensure that no other guest experiences this. We will closely monitor further feedback on these areas as well as the shower. The pressure is not something that has been mentioned before, but many traditional cottages experience lower pressures than more modern houses, just due to the older plumbing designs in the building, and electric showers do not tend to have the same kind of high pressure as their alternatives, but if we receive further feedback that suggests that it is something more than that, we will get that looked into straight away. We will get the description amended so that it is clearer that the bedrooms are on a different floor to the shower room and speak to the owner about providing a torch or 2, as at least one should have been provided for you. Thank you for bringing these points to our attention. Whilst we are aware that you were understandably disappointed with the cleanliness, we do hope that you still had a great time exploring the area. Tanya, Customer Services

We had a lovely stay at Post Box Cottage, cosy cottage perfectly located in a quiet village but just a short drive to many places of interest in beautiful Cornwall.

Cosy and relaxing cottage with a comfy feel. Great location to visit lovely beaches and picturesque fishing villages. WiFi needs an update, although great if you want to switch off completely!

Lovely cosy cottage with a great outdoor space also and nice views over the hills from the Garden.

It’s less than 10 minutes to several lovely coastal bays, beaches and Mevagissey.

You can also cycle many routes from here although quite hilly!
