What’s on the horizon for 2022

With a new year comes new opportunities...

…and Cornwall has everything you need to get started.

If you’re anything like us, then you’ll be prepping yourself for an exciting 2022. With pandemic restrictions truly easing, it’s the time to take hold of life with both hands and do all those things you’ve missed out on for the last two years.

And, while starting the new year with new intentions isn’t unusual, let’s be honest, they don’t always last. So, this year, forget about kicking old habits or starting the latest fad diet – give yourself the gift of new experiences instead.

With so many things to do in Cornwall, make this the year of investing in yourself; learning new skills, trying new things and reigniting that passion for adventure.

Here, we’ve pulled together some of the best things to try in Cornwall in 2022.


Pottery workshops

Are you looking for a new hobby that lets your mind wander and releases your inner creativity?

There’s something really fun about getting your hands dirty, so dive in and explore your imaginative side with a pottery workshop. No matter you’re ability, it’s guaranteed fun (and you don’t even have to rely on the weather).


Art school

Creatives have been drawn to Cornwall for centuries. From the wild and rugged moors to the awe-inspiring coastal views, there’s something to inspire every artist, with each offering their own take on this magical landscape.

And that means that you’ll find plenty of them sharing their craft, too! Check out the renowned Newlyn Art School for a wide range of art classes, or head to nearby Mawgan Porth to try your hand at some Art at the Beach.


Foraging in nature

One of the biggest things the pandemic taught us is how much comfort we can find in reconnecting with nature. So, why not go one step further and explore how it can inspire your plate, too?

Foraging workshops are a great way to get outside and learn those key hacks to eat more sustainably while making the most of the freely-available hedgerow treats available on our doorstep. In fact, foraging in the UK is growing faster than ever – so, now is the time to give it a go.


Cooking classes

If foraging isn’t really your thing but you just love to get busy in the kitchen and learn new skills with the help of Rick Stein’s Cookery School in nearby Padstow.

Whether you’re looking for a half-day cookery experience or you want to spend a few days learning recipes inspired by Rick’s travels around the world, there’s a little something for every cooking enthusiast to enjoy.


Gin school

Fellow gin lovers, trust us when we say that you’ll just love Tarquin’s Gin School. This iconic Cornish gin maker has opened its doors to those who want to try something new by giving you the chance to have a go at distilling your own botanical masterpiece.

And, with two locations to choose from (Padstow and St Ives), it’s the perfect excuse to take a day trip to some of Cornwall’s most celebrated coastal towns.



For those who don’t know much about yoga, don’t be fooled into thinking this is an easy skill to learn. It takes persistence and regular practice – but the pay-off is worth it!

Joining a yoga class is a great way to start your journey to inner mindfulness, helping you to mentally heal while promoting a healthier lifestyle. What better way to start a new year than with a better mindset?


Kayaking around the Cornish Coast

If you’re hungry for adventure on the water but you’re not sure where to start, kayaking can be the perfect gateway to tasting that saltwater lifestyle.

No matter your ability level, this sport is perfect for those who love the idea of gentle paddles on the Gannel, and is a great way to enjoy Cornwall’s incredible marine life.


Planning your Cornish getaway

There’s no doubt that Cornwall is a hub for trying new experiences, so bring a little taste of something new to your Cornish adventure in 2022.
