as per title, i am planning a holiday for july/august to corn wall or devon or torquay ??? not too sure yet suggestions needed.

we plan on some camping (tent or van) not decided yet. hotel or B+B etc if suggested???

we also want to be coastal for some fun in the sea (hopefully)??? cliff diving etc.

and last of all, its a very long shot, but is there any trials bike facilities (practice areas) clubs or even events???

any advice or suggestions appreciated, many thanks.

Its all good, I live in Torbay - more commercial than most parts of Devon or Cornwall, but there is defo sea, cliffs and coasteering opportunities. Good access to the South Hams and Dartmoor too. There is Motocross at Patchquick near Kingsteignton, their website has fixture info. Probably cheaper than N Devon or N Cornwall as good wave days are rare, but quite a few T5s around:D

Hi ! I live in Plymouth
South Devon and South coast of Cornwall are great for sheltered beaches and coves
If you want more "exposed" beaches for surfing then try North Devon and North Cornwall coasts
I've stayed at Harlyn Sands near Padstow last two years and it's been great http://www.harlynsands.co.uk/

Sennen Cove is lovely near Lands end. Good, chilled out, informal but V.busy campsite Trevedra Farm is a short beach cliff top walk to the Old Success pub in Sennen Cove

If you are heading south west you might as well go all the way!T:

Plenty of sea and cliffs to play on
