Cornwall Bucket List

I’m lucky to have lived in Cornwall for over 2 years and have been on many adventures and seen lots of brillaint Cornish sights. However, times are a changing and I am moving to live in Exeter  in September 2017. Whilst Exeter isn’s that far away – I am sad to be leaving such a brilliant place where I feel so at home. In case I never return (which clearly I will) I have created a Cornwall Bucket List of things I want to do and places I want to see in Cornwall before the summer is out.



Climb Brown Willy (highest point in Cornwall)

Go to the Isles of Scilly

Visit Poldark Mine

Eat at the Jamaica Inn

Go to Bodmin Jail

Visit St Michaels Mount ✔

Go to the Seal Sanctuary  ✔

Look around the Japanese Gardens (St Mawgan)

Visit Lanhydrock (Bodmin)

Eat at Carn Brea Castle


Feast night at The Hidden Hut, Porthcurnick

Watch the Lands End Summer Fireworks

Go Cornish camping ✔

Have lots of beach BBQs

Let me know what you think of the list and whether you think there is something missing that’s a Cornwall must do! Just pop your comments in the box below 🙂

    Hi, we’ve just returned from a few days in Cornwall…you know you’re spoilt for choice when St Ives isn’t the best beach you’ve visited haha.

    Love your bucket list idea… the weather was too good for inside activities, but would love to return to the Lizard to explore the Chocolate Factory! Wouldn’t mind the Lands End fireworks, too… from Sennen, course!

      Hi Emma, thanks for your comment! There are so many nice beaches, it’s super hard to have a favourite! Chocolate factory! I’ve not heard about this but will be checking it out now and possibly adding to the list!

    What an awesome idea to have a town bucket list! It really is amazing to live in a town you just love exploring in!

    • Rachel Stone

      Thanks, I think we often take for granted where we live and what’s on our doorsteps!

    What a fresh idea for staycations. Plus I’m a sucker for lists of all sorts! So many new takes on bucket lists.

    • Rachel Stone

      Thanks, I think we often over look staycations and the cool places that are around us! Having bucket lists makes me push to tick them off all so I end up seeing more!

    Great list especially the Poldark bits 😉

    • Rachel Stone

      Thanks for your comment Becky! I agree!! 🙂

    I love your Cornish bucket list. I live in Cornwall too and there is so much to see and do. I’ve lived here my whole life and I’m still yet to visit the Isles Of Scilly, which is crazy because I literally live 15 minutes away from the boat that takes you there. That’s definitely one that’s on my bucket list this year. x

    • Rachel Stone

      Thank you Chloe! Ah wow lucky you – Cornwall is just the best. I’ve recently moved to Devon and although Cornwall isn’t far, I miss it! Ah that’s so naughty of you – although we often don’t visit what’s on our door step do we! Glad you’re adding it to your list! 🙂

    I know I would be able to accomplish the EATING goals FIRST – hahaahahahah! Looks like an awesome list FULL of adventure to me! 🙂

    This sounds like a blast! I’d love to go to Cornwall because I’ve never been and it sounds like a great spot.

  8. Daisy

    Aww this is such a funbucket list! You are so blessed to be able to enjoy such a beautiful country!!

  9. Sonia

    I just love Cornwall but haven’t done any on your list. I did the Eden Project for the first time this year and loved that x

    • Rachel Stone

      Me too, it’s such a fab county! The Eden Project is pretty cool!

  10. Atul Host

    Sound like an awesome list to me. I am kind of foodie and it seems I will complete them first anyhow.
