How’s dry January going? Or maybe you’re flicking through a low fat cook book, searching for something healthy and tasty to make up for all those Christmas calories? How about you take a look at some of our Cornish New Year resolutions instead?
Most of our resolutions fall by the wayside before the end of the month, but sticking to them doesn’t have to be a hardship…. it can be fun.
Here are 7 Cornish New Year resolutions you’ll want to keep
7. Watch the sun set over the Atlantic ocean
You can’t beat it – that moment when the golden ball of sunshine drops below the horizon and you’re left with nothing but the gentle lapping of the smooth waters of the ocean. Not many people are lucky enough to create memories like this – make sure you’re one of them.
6. Visit the lands of Ross Poldark and Demelza
The hit BBC drama Poldark, featuring the stunning Cornish coastline and countryside, returns to our screens again in 2017. We can’t promise a shirtless Aidan Turner with a scythe but we can promise beautiful views and long-lasting memories.
5. Eat a Cornish pasty overlooking a harbour
You can’t come to Cornwall without sampling the world famous Cornish pasty – and it won’t taste better than when it’s eaten overlooking a traditional Cornish harbour.
Be inspired with some of our favourite fishing villages here, and book your seat to watch the world go by as you tuck into a warm Cornish pasty.
4. See the eighth wonder of the world
The Eden Project needs to be seen to be believed – developed from a hole in the ground in 1995, Eden has won the title of Best UK Leisure Attraction for the last five years in a row. Its biomes are home to the largest rainforest in captivity, stunning plants and exhibitions, as well as contemporary gardens and play areas.
3. Surf a wave
You don’t have to be a pro surfer to get your feet wet and ride a wave on the north coast – Newquay is one of the best places in the UK for surf, and the experts at the local surf schools encourage beginners of all ages and abilities to catch the surfing bug. You might just surprise yourself…
2. Go dolphin watching
Cornwall is one of the best places in the UK to see marine mammals and sea birds, with excellent sea-watching spots dotted around the coastline.
This video of dolphins surfing off the south coast was captured on December 29 by a local wildlife enthusiast:
Awesome experience – enjoy it for yourself in 2017 with your own wildlife sea safari.
1. Enjoy a Cornish cream tea
It might not fit with your healthy eating goals for 2017, but one won’t hurt…. just be sure to put jam first (don’t get us started….)
