Holidays in Cornwall
In the far west corner of England is Cornwall - a county that has become synonymous with the great outdoors and everything else that is great about a holiday in the UK. Whether it’s the surf, the rich historical towns and sites or the wealth of holiday homes Cornwall is known for, it is richly deserving of its title as the definitive destination for a well-deserved break.
With tourists, water-sport enthusiasts and people both young and old flocking to the county to stay in one of the many holiday cottages Cornwall has to offer, it is a vibrant, lively county - one with something for everyone. Its beaches are renowned around the world and the county boasts a coastline that rivals many others on the planet for seafood not to mention a rising number of hip restaurants. Both are supplied by an active and sustainable fishing trade. Part of Cornwall’s charm lies in the diversity of the land. Rolling hills and fields lead to traditional seaside towns or quaint and ancient fishing villages and harbours. And just a stone’s throw away are white sands and turquoise waters.
But you don’t have to spend all your time exploring the coast of Cornwall. The county is home to an array of historical buildings and gardens and you can take your pick from a range of National Trust properties to visit. One sight that must be seen is the Eden Project – a cluster of giant greenhouses, in which scientists examine and monitor exotic plants and explore the relationship between plants and people.
Perhaps the biggest decision when visiting Cornwall is where to stay. Whether it’s at a holiday home or cottage or somewhere that offers facilities for self catering Cornwall is packed with places you can immerse yourself in its relaxed pace – a way of life that is like nowhere else.
