Glorious open sands perfect for cool surfing dudes, couples strolling along the beach or just gazing across the water. Busy resorts with enough activities to keep the kids busy all day and night. Visit Newquay, Bude, Woolacombe, St. Ives, Torquay, Brixham and many more.
Quaint Fishing Ports
Discover lovely Mousehole, Mevagissey, Padstow (treat yourselves to a meal at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurarant), Port Isaac, Clovelly, Salcombe and Fowey for their authentic surroundings. Get a feel for the days before tourists when whole communities depended on fishing for their livelihoods.
Walk On The Wild Side
The mighty Atlantic Ocean dominates, with waves crashing into the North and West Cornish coastline. Stand on the edge at Land’s End and try to imagine nothing but water for 3000 miles until North America. Around the corner is the southerly point of mainland Britain at Lizard to tick off your bucket list.
Back To Nature
Nowhere in England feels so remote and unspoilt as the upland areas of the National Parks of Dartmoor and Exmoor and of Bodmin Moor. Wild and free ponies roam at will and smugglers inns still exist where the atmosphere instantly takes you back to a more lawless time. Hiking and cycling is popular and accessible with good road links throughout.
Best Of The Rest
Go back in time the Court of King Arthur at mysterious Tintagel, imagine Drake preparing to repel the Spanish Armada at naval Plymouth, take a boat trip from one of the world’s largest natural harbours at Falmouth and don’t miss the impressive sight of St. Michael’s Mount near Penzance. Finally, get your boots on and tackle the South West Coastal Way, Britain’s longest footpath.
