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.
A narrow gauge steam railway running from Launceston out to Newmills Farm, which is also a lovely attraction for families with young children.
The famous biomes house plants from all around the world. A great education centre, which also holds music and entertainment events.
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.
A popular all-weather family tourist attraction.
A lovely cycle into the Devon countryside, with the option of taking your bikes on the train from Okehampton for part of the journey.
A relaxing cafe/brasserie serving fine cuisine, with an emphasis on seasonal, local produce.
A popular acoustic cafe takes place on the last Thursday of every month.
The beautiful Lost Gardens of Heligan, now restored and once more productive.
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.
An award-winning freehouse inn overlooking Widemouth Bay, serving excellent local produce.
