Located in the far west of Great Britain on a peninsula in the Atlantic ocean, almost completely surrounded by the sea, the magnificent coastline of Cornwall extends for almost 300 miles. Cornwall is also the location of mainland Great Britain's most southerly promontory, The Lizard, and one of the UK's most westerly points, Land's End.
There is a great variety of wildlife, great walking trails and the region has more than its fair share of local legends.
There's also a dynamic art scene inspired by the naturally stunning landscape; and more recently a food scene to rival London and beyond; Cornwall now has a multitude of award-winning local food producers and stellar chefs putting the region well and truly on the gourmet map.
Cornwall also has a tremendous history based on its Celtic roots, its Celtic Cornish culture, the warmth and friendliness of the people and the Cornish language that can be seen in the village names.
Cornwall has the mildest and sunniest climate in the United Kingdom. Winters are amongst the warmest in the country. Cornwall is one of the sunniest areas in the UK, with over 1541 hours of sunshine per year, with the highest average of 7.6 hours of sunshine per day in July. The Gulf Stream, bringing warm air from the Caribbean north-east toward Europe, makes Cornwall's weather distinctly milder than other places and it is due to the Gulf Stream that Cornwall has the UK's only area of sub-tropical climate, at the extreme south-west of Cornwall. Palm trees are a common sight in these areas. The sub-tropical nature has resulted in a number of botanical gardens, such as Trebah and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
Marzion and its surrounding towns boast seas that turn turquoise in the sun, white sands and natural light that is sometimes blindingly bright. The town is adorned with a legacy of Bronze age standing stones, huge granite burial chambers, Celtic crosses and holy wells.
The fishermen land their daily catch of fresh seafood and tall ships, luggers and ketches unfurl their sails in the Cornish breeze.
Long famed for its perfect surfing conditions, the coastline here is a hub for all kinds of extreme sports from coasteering to zapcat racing and scuba diving to rock climbing.
The area is rich in culture with art galleries and the world famous open-air Minack theatre that is carved into the cliff side with the Atlantic ocean as it's stunning backdrop.
There is no lack of options for those in search of art, wildlife, sport or just pure relaxation.
