On the Map: Cornwall's Coastal and Countryside Gems

28/06/2019 On the Map: Cornwall's Coastal and Countryside Gems


Cornwall is well-known as the ultimate UK holidaymakers' paradise. 

Not only is the entire region steeped in magical myth and legend, but you'll find over 300 beaches to unfurl your towel on (and if you've ever wanted to try your hand at surfing, let's just say you couldn't have picked a better spot!)

Oh - and have we mentioned the food? From steaming hot pasties in winter, to summer afternoons cheered by traditional cream teas, you can indulge all year round.

Naturally, you're going to need a place to stay that really befits all those unique Cornish wonders. And as we've rounded some of our favourites up to show you here, you need look no further!
