Kernow Adventure Park
Kernow Adventure Park is an outdoor adventure centre set on a secret, freshwater lake sunk deep into the earth. Located in Kessel Quarry, once a successful granite quarry, now Kessel is flooded with spring water and flanked by steep walls of granite. The natural pool of water is nestled within Kessel’s breath-taking 21-acre site near Falmouth, which feels like more of a nature reserve than an activity centre!
Whether you want to experience the exhilarating feeling of carving along the water’s surface as you learn to wakeboard, the hilarity of the aquapark as you bounce around the floating playground, or skim along the water’s surface like a skipping stone as you ride the ringo – everyone is sure to leave with a smile on their face. For a slower pace, soak up your surroundings on a Stand Up Paddle-Board as dragonflies flit across the water’s surface and take in the vast 40m walls of granite.Website
