Cornish holidays

Well known for its glorious beaches and stunning scenery, Cornwall is not just a pretty face! Many of its towns and villages have an intriguing history with tales of smugglers, myths and legends. Attractions are plentiful including those with world famous status such as The Eden Project, the Minack Theatre and Tate St Ives. Whether you are looking for family fun, an activity holiday or a romantic break by the sea, Cornwall has plenty of attractions and adventures to fill your days come rain or shine.

Located in the far south west of the UK, Cornwall's impressive landscape provides an ideal setting for enjoying a whole host of outdoor activities, from walking along the spectacular coastal paths to the thrill of kite surfing along the sands. With over four hundred miles of stunning coastline, there are water sports to enjoy and beautiful beaches blessed with clear waters, for lazy holidays.

Many of Cornwall's fascinating towns and villages are rich in history and date back hundreds of years with fascinating tales of shipwrecks. Their narrow cobbled winding streets and tiny alleyways are home to unique boutiques, craft shops and art galleries, putting the fun back into shopping.

Cornwall has a lively art scene, which is hardly surprising, with a spectacular dramatic landscape that has inspired so many artists and provided the backdrop for many films and television programmes.

With a climate of its own, Cornwall is perfect for a cottage holiday or short break at any time of the year. Winters are short, spring starts early and even in the depths of winter, Cornwall is an ideal place to escape to, with world-class restaurants, empty beaches, quiet roads, crisp clean air and traditional pubs with log fires and a welcoming friendly Cornish smile.
