Cornwall - Accommodation and sights with somewhat limited mobility

Jump to last reply

I have a separate thread going on visiting both Cornwall and Scotland on the same trip, but wanted to narrow down the discussion on this thread to cover only the Cornwall portion of our trip. I'll be travelling with my mom, who loves to walk, but has trouble climbing hills and steps (other than short flights). We want to see Cornwall's stunning coastline, walk on a beach or two, visit a couple of fishing villages and gardens, and basically relax and soak in the ambience. We'll be in Cornwall for 7-8 nights and plan on having a car. This visit is probably not until May 2016, so I've plenty of time to plan (one of my favorite hobbies, I might add).

Based on Annhig's excellent suggestion on my other thread that we fly into Newquay from Edinburgh, we'd pick up a car at the airport and head in the direction of St Ives. I have read that driving into St. Ives is not advisable, so where should we look for accommodation that allows easy access to St. Ives and the Penwith Peninsula? If we split our visit between two bases, would Falmouth offer good options for lodging and parking that would also accommodate Mom's mobility issues?

I'd also appreciate suggestions for villages and beaches that would give a sampling of Cornwall's beauty but are easily reached by car and flat-ish walks.
