5 Things to do in the South West this Summer
25 July 2016
Cornwall is perfect for those who like a laid back life, with rolling countryside steeped in legend and for water babies who can’t resist some time surfing or watching the waves. And it’s true, much of what the South West has to offer is outdoors. Here are just a few of our favourite things to do outside in the region:
Woodland wanders: If you go down to the woods today, you’ll be sure of a big surprise. That’s because of the exceptional beauty you will see. Encompassing both Dartmoor and Exmoor National Parks, in the South West there is around 250,000 acres - a happy blend of ancient woodland and public forest estate land.
A shore thing: Savour the coast with the most. Stretching over 600 miles from Somerset to Dorset, the South West coast has one or two beach spots you might like. Whether you’re a surfer, a beach comber or a toe dipper, drink in the sights of this world-famous shore.
Life’s a picnic: Why is it that sandwiches always taste better outdoors? Possibly because you’re in the South West, where the air is fresh and the countryside is drenched in beauty. Take a simple picnic or an extravagant feast one leisurely afternoon and catch the sun set.
On yer bike: Hire a tandem or take your own wheels along one of the many cycle routes in the South West, ranging from easy rides, arts trails, long-distance rides, forest and woods, coastal routes, waterways and lakes. Find a route for you here: www.sustrans.org.uk/ncn/routes
Starry, starry night: Yes, the South West skies do shine brighter than most. Well, we think they do anyway. Take a blanket and a flask of hot chocolate and spend the evening stargazing at your favourite outdoor spot. Simplicity wins every time.
