  • There are over 300 beaches in Cornwall, from your very own deserted coves to bustling beaches. Perfect to swim, surf or just soak up the vibe.

  • The lush sub tropical gardens are nurtured by the warming gulf stream. Indeed from mid February spring arrives , with fields of daffodils and magnolias and camelias blooming. There are many gardens including Trengwainton, Glendurgan and Trelissick to name only a few.
  • Fabulous fresh seafood is landed at Newlyn and other smaller locations, providing some of the finest seafood dining in the UK. These range from Stein in Padstow and Porthleven, Outlaw in Port Issac to Shore, Mackerel Sky and the Tolcarne in the Penzance/Newlyn area.
  • St Michaels Mount, nestling in Mounts Bay, combines fortress, stately home, harbour and gardens for a memorable day out. It is accessible either by boat or foot on the causeway, at low tide.
