Things to do in North Cornwall

There's so much going on in and around North Cornwall and East Devon that we thought it would be helpful to post some of the best events on our website as a handy reference for visitors.

It's by no means a complete list but we hope you find it useful and, if you discover something that's not on the list that you think might worth mentioning for next year, please do get in touch.

Events are organised into categories on the right of the screen or you can browse the full list below.

All Categories

Upton Cross

Experience the wonder of live theatre and music in a unique setting on the edge of Bodmin Moor. This canopied "open-air" theatre has much to offer throughout the Summer season.

Roadford

South West Lakes Trust manages 50 inland waters, Roadford Lake being one of them. They offer various facilities and opportunities for activities, including walking, cycling, water-sports and angling.

North Petherwin

The nearby Tamar otter and wildlife centre is a great day out for all the family. For added adventure you can reach the centre by walking from Cullacott along the old farm track.

Treburley

A fantastic country pub providing fine wines and great local food. Recently under new management.

Launceston

A centre for contemporary crafts and patchwork classes, with exhibitions, workshops, fabric shop and fantastic cafe.

Cotehele

Cotehele is a splendid Tudor house with formal gardens and orchards. The wilder Valley garden leads down to the river and the path continues along to the Quay and eventually to the Mill.

The Edgcumbe tea-room on The Quay is a good re-freshment stop.

St. Stephens

A friendly members club and a great venue for a local days golf.

Bude

A small tapas bar overlooking Bude's marshes.

Cardinham

A beautiful mixed woodland and a lovely place to walk the dogs. Also popular with families and keen cyclists with the relatively new off-road mountain bike trail.

Plenty of space to picnic, but the Woods Cafe is excellent.

Launceston

A narrow gauge steam railway running from Launceston out to Newmills Farm, which is also a lovely attraction for families with young children.
