A county of outstanding natural beauty, this stunning holiday hotspot is also recognised for its unique culture and considerable history, as well as its friendly locals. Tucked away in the Southwest of England, Cornwall is the ideal place to take a break – whether you’re seeking adrenaline-pumping activities in Newquay, ancient Celtic heritage or a laid-back trip away to peaceful St Ives, packed full with things to do.
You won’t find many pirates in Penzance these days, but you will find a charming town that is a delight to stay in. From peaceful farms to cosy cottages, you’ll find a warm and inviting place to stay amid lush greenery. Alternatively, discover the picturesque seaside feel of Bude with its glorious beaches and wealth of water sports or visit some of Cornwall’s favourite family attractions.
Elsewhere you will be able to find the infamous Eden Project – the world’s largest rainforest in captivity. Housed in numerous domes, the architectural wonder of these structures is only half of the appeal; rock concerts and a myriad of events keeping visitors entertained and providing what is one of the most unique experiences in the UK. Holidays to Cornwall will supply something to suit everyone, and the Eden Project itself will ensure everyone has something to get stuck into.
Alternatively, you can head to Cornwall’s only city, Truro. Deep in the heart of the county, Truro will offer some of the region’s best museums and attractions. The Royal Cornwall Museum offers the best way to get an insight into the area’s past, whereas the Truro Cathedral personifies the grand history that Cornwall holidays are well-known for. Boat tours can also be taken from the city, allowing you to truly get to grips with the vastness of coastal beauty the county showcases.
