Campervan Hire Cornwall = Flexibility and Freedom
Hiring a camper van or motorhome in Cornwall gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in this beautiful county, to travel around as much or as little as you like. Want a wild walk along the rugged north coast on one day, then a gentle stroll round the world’s largest indoor rainforest at the famous Eden Project the next?
It couldn’t be easier when you’ve got everything you need in your vw campervan. Fall in love with a particular spot? No problem. Unlike hotel accommodation, you can easily stay longer without the worry that your bedroom might be booked by someone else. You get to control your budget too as you decide whether or not you want to eat out, or cook for yourself and how much fuel you need to buy to drive from one place to the next.
Hiring a camper van or motorhome in Cornwall
Forget about the hassle of trying to book a hotel, with its rigid checking in and out times, plus all the packing and unpacking that goes with it. Hiring a campervan or motorhome in Cornwall with Campervan means you can plan your own schedule – and change it whenever you want. Whether you’re travelling as a twosome, with your kids or perhaps a group of friends to one of Cornwall’s festivals, you get to decide where to go and when, with all the conveniences you need on hand. It means that on a sunny day you can go to the beach, park up and have somewhere convenient to change and keep your belongings safe and dry. If it’s raining, you can still head off somewhere with spectacular views and enjoy them from the warmth and comfort of your vw camper van, rather than being stuck in a hotel.
Places to visit in Cornwall on your camper van holiday
Kernow a’gas dynergh (that means Welcome to Cornwall). Cornwall is home to one of the few remaining Celtic nations in the world and the Cornish have a strong sense of pride in their heritage, which is based on fishing, farming and mining. The Cornish were trading their tin with Romans, two thousand years ago!
With your very own mobile ‘home from home’ rented through Campervan, you can explore as much or as little as you want. Cornwall is surrounded by sea on its north, west and southern borders and divided from its neighbouring county, Devon, by the River Tamar in the east. In some ways Cornwall feels like an island and it has a diverse landscape. You’ll find rolling green hills, towering cliffs with pounding waves – and long sandy beaches, perfect for surfing, bathing and exploring rock pools. Sea lovers and land lubbers alike can opt for sailing, kayaking or rock climbing, or take a fishing trip. Keep an eye open for seals, dolphins and the majestic, but gentle, basking shark.
Mystical ancient sites
Full of magic and mystical ancient sites, Cornwall is also famous for its art and creativity. Set off in your rented campervan or motorhome to visit the holy well of Madron, the Nine Maidens stone circle or the mysterious Men An Tol. Take a day trip to St Ives to visit the Tate or the Leach Pottery and then enjoy craft hunting in one of the local shops.
If it’s local culture that you are after, there’s always something going on, including festivals, literary events and local music. Why not plan your trip round the Eden Sessions, the Falmouth Sea Shanty Festival, Fowey Festival (inspired by the late Daphne du Maurier) or Boardmasters? If your preference is visiting stately homes or you are a member of the National Trust, you’ve got lots to choose from – and if you’re a garden lover, thanks to Cornwall’s milder climate, there are many beautiful gardens to visit, including Lanhydrock, the Lost Gardens of Heligan, Trelissick, Caerhays (famous for its magnolias) and Trebah Garden.
Satisfy your inner Captain Ross or Demelza and follow in the footsteps of Poldark. Many of the locations featured in this popular series are easily accessible. These include Charlestown Harbour (just outside Saint Austell), Bodmin Moor, Holywell Bay (near Newquay), St Agnes Head and Chapel Porth, plus many of the old mining sites along the coast, where the original mining shafts ran from the cliffs and under the Atlantic Ocean. You can experience a mine for yourself by taking a tour around Poldark Mine near Helston.
A campervan adventure of Cornish culinary delights
Cornwall is famous for delicious food. From the ‘meal-in-one’ traditional Cornish Pasty (the genuine article has no peas or diced carrots) and indulgent Cornish Cream Teas (remember, it’s jam on first in Cornwall) to some of the freshest local produce available to cook up tasty meals in your rented campervan or motorhome. Find your own private spot on a secluded beach and take a picnic or barbecue. Of if you don’t feel like cooking, take a trip to any one of hundreds of award-winning pubs and restaurants, where you can also sample the local beer or wine. Plus of course, Cornwall is home to one or two rather famous chefs, one of whom has a highly regarded restaurant in Padstow on the north coast. You certainly won’t go hungry.
Renting a campervan in Cornwall is great for kids too
There’s bags of activities and attractions for kids to do when you campervan hire in Cornwall and they are all so easy to reach. In addition to the Eden Project, check out Paradise Park, Dairyland Farmworld, Blue Reef Aquarium, Newquay Zoo, the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, and many more. If you’re all keen cyclists then the Camel Trail, following part of the old disused railway line between Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow provides access to a lovely stretch of Cornish countryside. If you don’t have your own cycles with you, then you’ll find details about bike hire facilities online.
