Why Cornwall Is the Perfect Staycation Spot

The oceans, the mountains, the fresh air...there’s something magical about Cornwall.


We’re not the only ones who feel it—others do, too. Lots of others. Cornwall has been an incredibly popular tourist destination for years, both for Britons and holidaymakers from abroad. And with the global pandemic, many people are choosing to stay closer to home and experience the brilliance of what’s just around the corner in their own country.

If you’re looking for a relaxing getaway in a stunningly beautiful area that’s within arm’s reach, Cornwall is often top of the list.

So just what is it that makes Cornwall the perfect staycation spot?

Cornwall is full of beautiful beaches

Cornwall stretches out over 250 miles of coastline and is home to over 300 beaches, each with its own unique charm. Whether you’re a surfer looking for the biggest swells (which, by the way, Bude, Newquay, and Polzeath are awesome spots for) or you prefer to just lie on the sand and enjoy a leisurely seafood meal in the sun, Cornwall has something special to offer.

Plus, there’s the gorgeous sunsets every night, the sand dunes that are just begging to be explored, and the nearby towns that are full of charming shops for a lazy afternoon of souvenir shopping.

Dartmoor National Park is an absolute must-visit destination

When you want a change of scenery, just across the border in Devon is Dartmoor National Park and is home to lush, wild moorlands and river valleys. It’s perfect for couples, families, and solo travellers who want to immerse themselves in nature and see rare wildlife in their natural habitat.

The birthplace of Boing

Why are we so crazy about Cornwall? It’s where we first felt the creative spark that led to the creation of our Boing jewellery made of climbing and sailing rope. We wanted to find a way to capture the magic of the oceans and mountains in a way that you could carry with you always. Thus, Boing was born.

Remember your Cornwall staycation with a Boing bracelet that is inspired by the beauty of the area. Boing bracelets are available in select stores in Cornwall, including Treasures of Fowey in Fowey, Cornwall.
