Things to do in North Cornwall
Holidays in North Cornwall are about enjoying leisure
at your own pace; and you'll be tempted with a rich choice of
activities which is hard to equal. Let's tee off with golf; only
Scotland has more golf courses per head of population - so there's
plenty of choice. Stand on the seaside tees at Trevose or Bude,
with the Atlantic watching your every shot, or step onto the first
at St Enodoc, Sir John Betjeman's favourite course. Then brace
yourself: you're about to find out what seaside golf is all about.
Or head inland and test your handicap on the parkland courses
at Lanhydrock, Roserrow, Bowood Launceston, St Kew and Trethorne.
You can't get a better view of the
countryside than on horseback - with a choice from moorland hacking
or breathtaking coastal treks. Hire a saddle on two wheels and
cycle the Camel Trail - or if you're a serious spokesperson, leave
the car at home and pedal the West Country Way which runs from
Bristol to Padstow.
your fishing rod and tackle and choose from rock, beach, sea,
river game, stillwater trout and coarse fishing. No close season
in Cornwall means you can drop a line in at any time of year.
mostly, take it easy. You could unwrap the kite and spend an uplifting
hour or two catching
the fresh Atlantic breezes; take to the sands for a spot of beach
volleyball; or just put your feet up and watch the ins and outs
of local cricket at Wadebridge. And if it clouds over, you can
always head for Bodmin, where you can play tennis on Cornwall's
only indoor courts, or swim in the indoor pools at Bude, Bodmin,
Camelford, Launceston and Wadebridge.
