Cornwall

The county of Cornwall has been attracting holidaymakers for decades and is without doubt one of the UK’s most loved holiday destinations, with its rich abundance of natural assets; beautiful beaches, dramatic sea cliffs, pretty fishing harbours and winding country lanes.

Cornwall’s unique charm and its stunning countryside and coastal landscapes are easy to access in this compact corner of south west England and you won’t have to travel far from your Cornish cottage to find it!

A host of top quality visitor attractions and holiday activities await you and here you’ll also find a fine selection of Cornish cottages, suitable for families and couples alike. But before you start packing your bags you might like a few suggestions for things to see and places to go on your break.

The Eden Project is undeniably one of the most popular attractions in Cornwall. This all-weather oasis offers a wealth of stunning flora in an amazing collection of ‘biomes’. Or, if you fancy getting out in the open-air then a visit to the Lost Gardens of Heligan is a must.

Padstow is highly recommended for those seeking the fine Cornish cuisine. This lovely coastal town offers an endearing sense of community and, thanks to the involvement of Rick Stein, several fantastic eateries.

For a unique occasion why not take in a play at the Minack Theatre, one of the world’s most spectacular open-air venues perched on the cliff side facing the sea. Similarly, St Ives celebrates a rich and varied artistic heritage through its Tate Gallery, the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden and much more.

With Cornwall’s temperate climate its beaches are perhaps one of the biggest attractions; a spectacular coastline extends for mile after mile and whether you want to surf, swim, stroll or just relax, you won’t be short of fantastic activities and great seaside locations.

With an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that covers 12 separate geographical areas, walking in Cornwall is a delight. Enjoy the beautiful moorland and towering tors of Bodmin Moor, take a cycle ride down the Camel Trail or gaze out from Rame Head; there’s a wealth of wonderful choices.

Alternatively you may prefer to relax and enjoy the comfort offered by a holiday cottage in Cornwall. So start a search for your dream holiday home right now.

    Tucked away in a quiet location, yet conveniently close to the centre of Penzance, Betty’s Retreat is a quirky, split-level, traditionally furnished, first-floor apartment that’s ideal for couples, small families or friends looking to explore western Cornwall. The property is just a hop, skip and a jump from the train station, so it’s ideal for holidaymakers wanting to leave the car behind – you can arrive by train, and Penzance has fantastic public transport for getting out and exploring the region. Access couldn’t be easier to points of interest in the area, so pay a visit to Sennen Cove, Land’s End, St Just and the magical coastal walks of the Penwith Peninsula. Alternatively, if you’d rather save your feet, you can take a scenic train ride to the picturesque harbour town of St Ives, passing numerous beautiful beaches en-route. There are also a number of sub-tropical gardens and National Trust properties nearby. Sure enough, Penzance’s title of ‘gateway to West Cornwall’ is well earned.

    The town itself offers a broad range of local amenities, including art galleries, a museum, marina, harbour, an array of independent shops and many a fine restaurant. Take a stroll along the promenade past the open-air Lido and café to the nearby fishing harbour of Newlyn, which is famous for its Newlyn Art School and Gallery. Further along the coast is the quaint fishing village of Mousehole, with its charming old-world ambience, winding streets, cobbled alleyways and sandy harbour beach.

    Owing to the South West Coastal Paths that follows the coastline, the area is popular with walkers. To the east of Penzance lies Marazion – a birdwatcher’s paradise thanks to the nature reserve of Marazion Marshes. There’s also St Michael’s Mount to visit – a rocky outcrop that rises out of the sea crowned with a medieval castle. St Michael’s Mount can be reached on foot via a causeway at low tide, or by a small boat at high tide.

    For more adventurous holidaymakers, why not take a boat trip to the stunning isles of Scilly? If you’re not so keen on travelling by boat, you can also get there by air from Land’s End Airport. Beach 1 mile. Shop and restaurant ¼ mile, pub 800 yards.
