Cornwall

England’s southwest corner is an idyllic blend of quaint villages, lush gardens and flower covered clifftop walks. Whip up an appetite on your break to Cornwall surfing the famed Atlantic waves, traversing the South West Coast Path or walking across its high granite moorland before indulging in the local gourmet food scene. With local delicacies like Cornish yarg cheese, the traditional Cornish pasty and indulgent clotted cream, alongside bountiful seafood, its no wonder that celebrity chefs have opened restaurants across the county. With a climate that is among the best in the UK, holidays to Cornwall are perfect for a family exploring fishing towns, discovering Cornwall’s pirate past or touching exotic plants at the futuristic biomes of the Eden Project.
