One of the best ways to enjoy Cornwall in the spring is to get out into its countryside for a relaxing walk, breathe in the fresh air and take in the stunning scenery, with a tasty picnic in your bag for when you need a well-earned rest. Cornwall is known for its delicious local foods, many of which would be perfect as part of a picnic.
So if you’d like an authentic taste of Cornwall on your caravan holiday, here’s what you should pack.
You can find Cornish pasties all over the UK, but you’ve never truly tasted one until you arrive in Cornwall! These handy-sized pastries are usually filled with beef steak, onion, potato and swede, but you can find dozens of different varieties, and even sweet versions with jam and fruits. Many locals may refer to Cornish pasties as ‘oggies’, but no matter what you call them, they’re an essential picnic snack.
Who can resist soft, crumbly scones smothered with jam and clotted cream? You certainly won’t be able to on caravan holidays in Cornwall, where real Cornish clotted cream has protected status and cannot be produced anywhere else, so make sure you savour it at every opportunity!
The Cornish coastline is renowned for producing some of the tastiest shellfish in the UK, and visitors come from miles around to enjoy sandwiches filled with delicious chunks of crabmeat. When packing a picnic to enjoy on your spring caravan holiday in Cornwall you can try making your own crab sandwiches, or just head into almost any Cornish café to have them made fresh, just for you.
