Things to Try
For some heart racing, hair raising thrills you can’t beat a visit to Adrenalin Quarry. Defy gravity on the giant swing as you plummet in freefall off a cliff before swinging skywards or perhaps travel a mere 40mph along a zip wire 50m from the ground.
Retallack Aqua Park
Try the big Wipeout-style aqua obstacle course on the Retallack Resort. Sessions cost £15 per person and include your wetsuit and buoyancy aids. The course can take up to 100 people so remember to bring all your friends and family!
Visit Charlestown and experience an incredible snapshot of the past at the unspoiled Georgian working port. Due to its old world look and feel Charlestown has been a popular location for TV and film crews, you may recognise it from episodes of Poldark, Mansfield Park and more.
Porfell Wildlife Park
Head to Porfell Wildlife Park and visit monkeys, meerkats and all other kinds of exotic creatures. Porfell wildlife park offers the opportunity to get up close to incredible animals, to feed and touch them and learn about the natural world.
For Food and Drink
Head into St Austell for high street chains like Prezzo and Frankie & Benny’s or try Charlestown harbour where you’ll find Charlie's Boathouse, a cosy restaurant serving a rustic menu. If you don’t fancy going out try the onsite restaurant, The Elephant Brasserie.
There are loads of fantastic attractions to experience during your holiday in Cornwall. The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, the St Austell Brewery, and the China Clay Trails are just some of the incredible choices available to you.
If you find time to venture beyond the numerous activities available onsite why not head to the beach for surfing or stand-up paddle boarding, there are plenty of beautiful coastal walks or alternatively explore inland along the Pentewan Trail.
