Best Picnic Spots In Cornwall
Good food, a great view and maybe a tipple or two. What better way to while away an afternoon in Cornwall than a picnic. The Schoose team have picked the best picnic spots in Cornwall so all you need to do is pack a blanket, grab your favourite treats and head out into the sunshine...
Golitha Falls, Bodmin Moor
An easy level walk from the car park which is perfect for little ones, a river to play pooh sticks and paddle in and the prettiest set of waterfalls. We recommend a waterproof backed picnic blanket for this one because it's in the woods and next to a river the ground can be a little damp even in the summer.
Porthkidney, near St Ives
You'll feel like you've been whisked to a tropical beach when you arrive. Turquoise water, white sand and quite often, no other people. Our tip is to make sure you visit when the tide is out.
Trelissick Estate, near Truro
Whether you want a meadow with sweeping views down the river and out to sea, a creekside beach or a quiet little woodland hideaway, you can find your perfect spot here in over 300 acres.
Godrevy Cliffs, near Hayle
Being just a few minutes drive from our shop you'll often find us here walking the dogs or taking an after work dip in the summer. Stroll along the beach and find a sandy spot, head up to the cliffs for a view across to the lighthouse on it's little island, head round the coastpath to spot the seals or if the weather is a bit rough you can have a car picnic with fantastic views right from the comfort of the car park!
Carn Marth, near Lanner
It's worth the walk up the hill to this spot! You'll be treated to views of both the Cornish coasts, plus there is plenty to explore including an engine house, peaceful lake and sheltered amphitheatre. A great place to watch the sun set.
