The West Country region

Cornwall is England's magical county, surrounded by miles of stunning wild coastline. It is home to many legends, Pixies, Pirates, smugglers, and standing stones. Wild and rugged coastline on the North, and gentle woods, valleys and thatched cottages on the South, it is surrounded by gorgeous beaches, many of them famous for surfing.

St Ives

St. Ives is a pretty fishing town on the far South West tip of England, surrounded on three sides by spectacular white sandy beaches. It's world class restaurants are situated either in the pretty cobbled streets, or in beautiful settings on one of the beaches looking over the sea.

Famous for it's artists and home to many galleries including one of The Tate Galleries right on Porthmeor Beach, St.Ives was home to artists such as Ben Nicholson, Patrick Heron and Barbara Hepworh. Still a thriving artist's community, it is culturally rich, and home to The Hepworth Sculpture Garden, the Famous Leach Pottery. There are many diverse attractions nearby such as the world famous Eden Project with it's tropical and Mediterranean Biomes just half an hours drive away, and St. Michael's Mount 6 miles away on the South coast amongst many more.

St.Ives is a wonderful place to visit in either summer or winter, and the stunning beaches and coastline all around Cornwall are beautiful at any time of year.
