Cornwall tops the list of Great British Beaches
Voted as having some of the most perfect slices of seaside in the Sunday Times 50 best beaches in the UK, Cornwall is leading the pack with its top beaches. Offering the perfect beach for anyone whether it’s family-friendly with ice creams and donkeys, the best for surf, or the ludicrously pretty, Cornwall’s got it covered.
Number 1 for families is Crantock beach located just across the River Gennel from Natural Retreats Fistral Beach, or a 30 minute drive from Natural Retreats Trewhiddle. It offers fantastic family facilities, parking right beside the beach, well-maintained lavatories, flat sand and safe paddling in the Gannel, and you can even rent deckchairs and windbreaks from Crantock Surf Hire.
For those looking for activities galore, Padstow and Polzeath come in at numbers 41 and 42. Padstow offers kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, and longboarding on the Camel Estuary, whilst Polzeath is extremely popular for surfers.
So for all these fun days out at the beach, you’ll need the perfect haven to retire to. Natural Retreats Trewhiddle is the perfect destination for a great British summer holiday. Find out more here…
Au revoir Yorkshire – The grandest of Grand Departs
An estimated 2.5m people lined the route of the Tour de France this weekend in Yorkshire, and what a success it was. After a procession through the streets of Leeds, the 198 Tour riders were met with a warm Royal welcome at Harewood House, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, joined by Prince Harry, cut the ribbon to officially start the race.
It was wonderful to see the decorated Yorkshire villages, crowds in their thousands and the outstanding scenery of the Yorkshire Dales as our favourite county put on a show for the rest of the world.
So as we wave farewell to the Tour de France, it’s time to start thinking of our own adventures in Yorkshire. Natural Retreats Yorkshire Dales offers the perfect summer Retreat for the whole family, wonderful countryside surroundings, stunning accommodation and spectacular activities aplenty!
