GCG’s Top Picnic Spots

Get your Enid Blyton on this summer with lashing of ginger beer, doorstop sandwiches and slabs of Victoria sponge. The Secret Seven had got their picnics bang on, and threw in the odd crime-busting adventure with Scamper the cocker spaniel for good measure. Revive that sense of alfresco foodie adventure with a picnic in the GCG’s top five Cornish picnic spots this summer.

Perfect For:
Enid Blyton Style Adventures, Picnics Galore, Lashings of Ginger Beer

Pollyjoke, Newquay

A short walk from Cubert Common down to Pollyjoke beach in Newquay will work up an appetite for a beach picnic. Pack a disposable BBQ to toast homemade seasonal veg kebabs.

Kynance Cove, Lizard

Voted one of the best picnic spots along the entirety of the south west coast path Kynance Cove is a beautiful, tropical-esque down on the south coast on the Lizard. A picnic spot for romance, pack fizz and strawberries to make it special.

Cardinham Woods, Bodmin

The setting for fairytale adventures with four planned trails, pack a rucksack with pasties and ginger beer for on-the-go cycle picnics. Or cheat and bring the empty rucksack and fill with homemade sandwiches and cake from the Woods Café

St Agnes Head

The National Trust owned grassland atop St Agnes Head has dramatic views along the north coast. Spot dolphins and surfers on a clear day. Avoid when windy as it is very exposed and make sure to pack a robust picnic blanket.

Devoran Quay

Part of the coast to coast cycle path, start at Portreath on the north coast of Cornwall and cycle the 22 miles to the Devoran on the south coast. Unpack your picnic on the quay front to appreciate the difference between the two coastal personalities. Cycle back and eat a big ice-cream!
