Let’s start with the basics: walking! Cornwall is spoilt with incredible walks: for starters, you can head to the South West Coast Path for sea views or go inland to Bodmin Moor. You will discover a beautiful place to explore in whichever direction you head.

Whether you’re an experienced rider or total beginner, you’ll be welcome at Great Trethew Trekking which is just four miles from Tregoad.

Alternatively, why not opt for a lesson or join Saturday/Sunday pony club to learn how to ride and care for your pony?
Adults and children all love horse riding at Great Trethew and the experience adds something really special to any holidays in Cornwall.
Being so close to the sea, it goes without saying that there are fantastic opportunities to take to the water during your Cornwall caravan holidays. For some people, that means simply dipping a toe in the waves during a day at the beach. However, if you fancy heading out a little farther, why not hire a kayak or paddleboard?
The shoreline near Tregoad is ideal for sedate water sports and at Millendreath Beach, just two miles from Tregoad, you can hire kayaks and paddleboards to serenely explore the coast. It offers a unique view of the land and is certainly an unusual way to stay active while you’re away.
