Charming Cornwall

Long stretches of coastline, quaint fishing villages, rich history and an eclectic mix of old and new – holidays to Cornwall are abundant in beauty, awash with sweeping bays and countless beaches.

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.

Stay on the South Coast Riviera

With such a diverse county, Cornwall holidays present a wealth of opportunity whatever you’re looking for. Romantic villages are scattered around the area, offering picturesque locations as well as a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city. The small mining town of Redruth is the ideal spot to discover the county’s rich history – follow the town trails that take in some spectacular architectural sites or take a bike and meander your way through old mining trails.

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.

Spectacular sights and strolls

Being one of the top destinations in the UK when it comes to landscape beauty and family breaks away, holidays in Cornwall are ideal for shoreline strolls and visiting the beach. The extensive display of rocky cliffs, sandy beaches and verdant expanses provides the ultimate British escape, whether you’re there to relax or hike through the varied terrain. However if you’ve got the kids in tow, there are a range of attractions in nearby Falmouth to keep them entertained; an aquarium, Pendennis Castle and the maze-like Glendurgan Garden are all worth exploring.

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.
