Surrounded on three sides by water, Cornwall is a craggy, charming peninsular full of character. On the north coast you will find particularly fine sandy beaches. Bude, Watergate Bay and Newquay are three that are popular.
There are dramatic cliff views notably at High Cliff between St.Gennys and Boscastle, where the rocks climb to an amazing 732 feet. You will find excellent surfing on this coast also. In contrast the Cornish Riviera in the south offers the much gentler prospect of secluded estuaries, quiet coves and small fishing villages.
All of Cornwall’s 300 beaches are linked by the South West Coast Path. Here you can experience some of the finest sea views in England, including the famous western-most point of Land’s End and the spectacular off-shore island of St. Michael’s Mount, a tiny slice of history. At low tide you can reach the island on foot. Cornwall’s distinctive tin mines, which are a World Heritage Site, are to the west.
Venturing inland, Bodmin Moor attracts walkers to crags and paths. The ruggedness of Bodmin Moor and its nearness to the lush Tamar Valley illustrates perfectly the diversity of Cornwall’s landscape. Liskeard is the gateway to the moor. It was once the centre of the mining industry and the town’s refined 19th century buildings indicate a prosperous past and are now home to some interesting craft and gift shops. On higher ground you will find ancient stones dedicated to long-ago kings of Cornwall. St.Cleer has a superb example of a holy well, and you will also come across pre-historic burial chambers – a reminder that this wild location has been inhabited by humans for 6000 years.
The famous Jamaica Inn is located at Bolventor. Immortalised in the book of the same name by Daphne du Maurier, it stands bleakly overlooking the highest hills in Cornwall, where there are just a few farmhouses dotting the landscape. Not far away at Temple a 12th century church can be found. This was originally built by the Knights Templers for pilgrims on their way to Ireland. This is just one of the many historical gems you will find in this area. The 150 square miles of moorland is a wonderful place for walking. The moor is an area of huge importance and as such has been granted World Heritage status (recognising the importance of tin mining which dates back over 4000 years). Additionally it has also been named an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is a Site of Special Scientific Importance. After an exhilarating day exploring this fascinating area, what better way to spend the evening than in the luxury and comfort of your Luxury Holiday Cottages in Cornwall?
The Eden Project is one of Britain’s most successful tourist centres. Truro’s triple-towered Gothic Revival style cathedral and Georgian architecture are popular attractions. Additionally there are many National Trust gardens and properties to visit.

St. Ives, on the Atlantic Coast, is another great place to visit. Situated in the far west of Cornwall, it is famous as a lure for artists due to the exceptional clarity of light and the outstanding azure seas. It is no surprise therefore that St. Ives boasts many art galleries, including the famed Tate St. Ives and the Barbara Hepworth Gallery. There is an abundance of colourful shops and restaurants – a great chance to try some of Cornwall’s traditional food. Everyone has to try a Cornish pasty at least once, or indulge in a delicious cream tea, or buy some of the mouth-watering fudge to enjoy later while relaxing in your Luxury Holiday Cottages in Cornwall. Alternatively, why not have a Bar-B-Que? The selection of fresh food is second to none and back at your Luxury Holiday Cottages in Cornwall you will find absolutely all the equipment you will need.

Golf is available at the West Cornwall Golf Clun in Lelant.
Luxury Holiday Cottages In Cornwall – Enjoy The Sea Air!
Padstow is another popular destination. This is a busy 15th century fishing port, full of stone and pastel cottages. The narrow cobbled streets lead down to a wonderful harbour; a great place to enjoy traditional fish and chips and to wander around the superb shops and art galleries. Also in this area is the village of St. Merryn, which has seven spectacular bays and surfing beaches.
Running from Wadebridge to Padstow is a six mile, traffic free, cycle way, called the Camel Trail. This trail passes through some of the most breathtaking countryside in the south west. The trail follows a disused railway line and runs next to the estuary. Bikes can be hired locally so why not take time during your stay at your Luxury Holiday Cottages in Cornwall to enjoy the bracing sea air.
