Stay in a pub in Cornwall

Cornwall, probably the leading summer holiday destination in England, forms a peninsula in the South West of England encompassing wild moorland and hundreds of sandy beaches plus the remote Isles of Scilly. This picturesque county is ideal for family holidays, walking holidays or simply a short break away.

‘The beauty and the mystery beckon still,’ wrote Daphne du Maurier in her book Vanishing Cornwall, published in 1967. Writing about the place she made home, the novelist was spot on. The beauty is undeniable and the sense of mystery can still be felt throughout this fabled land.

It’s not hard to see why so many visitors make their way to Cornwall every year. It has just about everything – glorious river valley scenery, wild moorland, beautiful surfing beaches and many miles of magnificently rugged coastline. With scores of small towns, pretty villages and historic houses to visit, as well as the mildest and sunniest climate in Britain – as a result of its southerly latitude and the influence of the Gulf Stream – Cornwall has more to offer than most regions of the country. Hardly surprising that it has long been acknowledged as one of Britain’s best-loved holiday attractions. Many visitors even choose Cornwall as the setting for a second home, irresistibly drawn back to the area on a more permanent basis.

Cornwall’s north coast is open and exposed; the 735-ft High Cliff between Boscastle and St Gennys represents the highest sheer drop cliff in the county. The Lizard, too, is a geological masterpiece consisting of breathtaking cliffs, stacks and arches whilst the South Coast if fondly referred to as the Cornish Riviera and includes the charming seaside harbor villages of Fowey and Falmouth.

But many of Cornwall’s visitor attractions are a mix of the natural and the man-made. The Eden Project is famous for its giant geodesic domes housing exotic plants from different parts of the world, while the nearby Lost Gardens of Heligan include splendid kitchen gardens and a wildlife hide.
