Cornwall is a beautiful place. Even if the weather is worse than you would expect it. We came for 4 nights and I can tell you it’s not enough. You have thousands of places to see in Cornwall. So many family-friendly activities, farms, parks, castles. We already know it wasn’t our last visit there.
It was first such a long road trip with our son and we didn’t know what to expect. So, I’ve decided to prepare a little travel guide for parents who want to explore that lovely part of England.
Be prepared for the unexpected!
Our son was really lovely. He was sleeping about 2 hours and he didn’t cry or moan. We even didn’t need to give him our phones or tablets. The only thing we didn’t expect was his vomits on the end of our journey. Seriously he couldn’t choose a better time. We literally just hit our destination, parked and he did what he did. The smell was awful so we need to spend an hour to clean our back car seats and his car seat. I’m not sure if you can put toddler’s car seat under shower but we did it. And what’s more we almost burn it when we were trying to dry it close to the radiator. Big applause for best parents ever. So yeah even if your baby doesn’t have a problem with motion sickness it’s better to take a lot of bags.
Be prepared for massive wind
At the end of the day, we’ve decided to see a sunset. Close to ocean, we saw some cars but we didn’t know why people are sitting inside if the view is so nice. But after a couple of minutes, we were sitting inside as well. The sand was everywhere. In my mouth, hair, eyes. Now I know that in Cornwall is massive wind:D Especially close to Ocean so it’s better to sit in your car…on the beach:D
The buggy is not a good solution
The rest days we spend on viewing castles, beaches, and closes cities. There are lots of places to sit and admire the stunning views along the coast especially clifftop views. So as you can imagine is not the really good place for a buggy if you want to admire those views. For most of the time, we were using our baby carrier and I advise every parent to get one if you want to explore Cornwall.
Weather can be really tricky
Be prepared for rain, sun and wind. Especially wind and rain. We were visiting Cornwall in September and one day was really sunny and hot and another day was windy and rainy. It’s good to take with you some board games. Find any indoor activities near your place.
I need to say it was unforgettable 4 days in Cornwall. I’m sure we will not forget this trip. Hope to go there at least one more time. If you live in England and don’t know where to go for your holiday you definitely need to visit Cornwall. Stunning views are for free:)
