I'm going to Cornwall in 3 weeks to stay in a log cabin in Deerpark. Can anyone recommend any cool things or activities to do to occupy my week?

That's not particularly native to Cornwall though is it now?

True, but as far as cornwall goes it IS one of the more entertaining things to do.

I guess it all boils down to just how keen you are to experiment with bestiality...

Why, with all the (blows nose) stuff about wanking, it's almost (sniffle) like the old days on EG (wipes eye).

Not that eye.

FUCK YOU UBISOFT

Been a while since I've been to Cornwall but it was quite nice.

I'd visit my favourite castle if I was on holiday.

Unfortunately for you though it's in Dorset...

Depends on the weather Hairy. You're a fair way across towards Devon, but if you like a bit of a walk you could try Trebah Gardens, which has a load of interesting vegetation, and a really nice private beach at the bottom. I'm not really one for walks or gardens, but I thought it was a pretty cool place. And they let dogs in.

You're on the wrong side really for a visit to Trebarwith Strand and Boscastle, but they're worth a visit if you happen to find yourself near Padstow. You're not that far from Polperro which is a pretty nice little village right on the sea, even though Richard and Judy live there. Cornwall hasn't really got any earthshattering activities, but if you like a potter about in a village or a bit of dramatic coastline you should be OK. Stay away from the Flambards Experience theme park though. It's shit.

You mean the Eden Project? Yep, still there, not too far away either.

The only catch with Cornwall is that all the places worth visiting always seem to be a good hour or two's drive away from wherever you are, and you end up spending more time in the car getting there than you do actually relaxing and enjoying the holiday.

Loads of fantastic ancient sites to visit in Cornwall (stone circles, standing stones, quoits, fogous, ancient settlement ruins etc).

The best stuff is down on the Land's End peninsula, but there are some on Bodmin and round that area though (scroll down this page for a list of some sites - Land's End stuff is on a seperate page here).

Good point, some of my earliest memories are of going to see such things. There's a stone circle near Land's End that is supposed to be a group of maidens who were dancing at midnight or something and then got turned to stone.....

Yep, that's the one.
We used to stay at Trevescan, which is basically where the road to Land's End branches off. Just south of Sennen.

I did a search for Deerpark and it came up with Deerpark wood, near Liskeard. Is that where you're going?

We usually stay in that area when we go down there, particularly Sennen Cove and Porthcurno.

One of my favourite stone circles is very near there, 'Boscawen Un' just off the A30 near Crows An Wra. Like the Merry Maidens it's not the most remote site - the really remote ones often tend to be the most atmospheric - but it's a really magical place.

Not been down there since I was 18 - 16 years ago...
I also remember being taken so some iron age burial place.... very vague memories I'm afraid.
Fancy heading down there again sometime - there's good diving to be had off the eastern side of the Lizard.

I enjoyed my little 5 day visit to Newquay so much that I was ready to drop everything and live there. I then remembered things like having a house and job in Glasgow...

Couldn't put my finger on why it affected me so but I'm definatly going back soon. The Eden Project is fantastic even if your not into plants or gardening in general. 16 odd quid to get in though but that might be ok on average -I'm just used to all the stuff in Glasgow that's free :o)

And you HAVE to drink the local cider out of one of those earthenware jugs. I hate normal cider but this stuff is lovely.

Have a belter dude!
