Holiday Properties in Cornwall

Cornwall is a county at the very tip of the south west of England - a county of moorland, rugged coastline and picturesque fishing villages. It is an all time favourite UK destination for a Beach or Family self-catering holiday. The county town is Truro and other major towns include Bodmin, St Austell and the ports of Penzance, Falmouth and Looe.

Because of Cornwall's setting - the only English county to have a coastline on three sides, the Atlantic Ocean and English Channel respectively - the sea and all things maritime play a large part in Cornwall's identity. As well as its fishing ports there are many seaside resorts such as Bude, Newquay and Fistral Beach - all popular with surfers and holidaymakers alike, and excellent places for a wide choice of holiday accommodation. Unsurprisingly, Cornwall is also an ideal place for anybody fond of seafood and its many famous restaurants make it ideal for a Food and Drink Short Break. Both Rick Stein and Jamie Oliver have restaurants in the county.

Cornwall is a great place to take a holiday let by those with an interest in artistic culture. It has a vibrant art scene that stems from the 19th century and the 'Newlyn' school. This is now celebrated in the modernist artwork which can be seen at the Tate St Ives art gallery and which is seen by visitors from all over the world. The county has also provided inspiration for many works of literature.

A holiday in Cornwall brings many attractions of interest including the vast bio-domes of the Eden Project, the natural awe of both England's most westerly point - Land's End & The Lizard peninsula on Cornwall's southern coast, the vast sweeping Bodmin Moor and the tidal isle of St Michael's Mount. The Isles of Scilly are also a short boat or helicopter trip away.
