Holiday Activities at Lanyon Manor Cornwall

There are a multitude of activities for you whilst holidaying at Lanyon Manor, many are in close proximity of your holiday accommodation, for example the glorious beaches of Porthmeor & Carbis bay near St. Ives and the huge stretches of golden sand at Godrevy on the North Cornish coast.

Depending on the time of year of your visit, there are festivals and events which are definitely worth a visit, in June there’s the two day Golowan Festival in Penzance; August is busy with Newquay’s Boardmasters – a local music and surfing festival, and at the end of the month there’s the Newlyn’s Fish Festival; then later in the year, in October, there’s the Falmouth Oyster Festival – a must for seafood lovers.

It doesn’t matter if it’s daytime or evening entertainment that you’re after on your holidays, in the day there’s an array of activities for you to enjoy including: archery, laser clays, clay pigeon shooting - all these can be organised for you, and extreme sports, i.e., mountain biking, rock climbing, surfing, scuba diving and much more – plenty to make your holiday exactly what you want it to be and give you an appetite for the evenings entertainment! You could also take in a bit of site-seeing, what hasn’t Cornwall got: the pretty St Ives, know for its art and artists, the Eden Project near St. Austell for ergonomic architecture and tropical plants, and then there’s St. Michaels Mount in Marazion – a delightful English seaside town. You may want to pamper yourself on holiday, if so you can treat yourself to an Indian head massage or a full body massage; this would definitely put you in the mood for that slap-up meal out in the evening, which leads us to...

The evening entertainment, here you’re also spoilt for choice, there’s the Minack Theatre in Porthcurno with its selection of plays and operas – just don’t forget the food and drink! Restaurants abound and not only the famous Rick Stein’s Restaurant in Padstow, Nathan Outlaws Restaurant in Rock and Jamie Oliver’s 15 Restaurant in Watergate Bay, but also the Untitled in Penzance, the Porthmeor café in St. Ives and, seriously, many, many more.
