The West Country region
Cornwall is the most South Western part of the UK, benefitting from some of Britain's mildest climates, with the warming effects of the Gulf Stream, early springs and long lingering summers. This unspoilt County enjoys a dramatic landscape from rugged moorland to stunning beautiful golden beaches.
Cornwall has historically been intrinsically linked with outdoor activities. With some of the cleanest seas in Europe surrounding the County, it has always been popular for water-based activities especially surfing. North Cornwall, predominantly in and around Newquay has historically been home to many UK Surfing Championships.
Walkers are able to find extensive countryside to discover and can delight in the longest stretch of continuous coastline in Britain on the South West Coast Path.
This ancient and mystic Celtic County has a feeling of being a land of legend and romance. Hence artists come to Cornwall for inspiration drawn by its rugged beauty and the quality of light.
The bustling town of Looe is divided by the ever-changing river that separates quieter West Looe from the absorbing waterfront of East Looe, with its diversity of shops, restaurants and pubs, Banjo pier and sandy beach. The pace and routine of life follows the ebb and flow of the tide and the movement of boats returning with their catch of fresh fish. Local boatman can ferry visitors to and from either quay or alternatively one can enjoy a pleasant cruise along the beautiful and rugged coastline, keeping an eye out for the schools of dolphins that can often be spotted in the bay. A guided tour will draw you deeper into the labyrinth of ancient buildings, clustered together in the narrow streets and courtyards that make up the old town of East Looe. Visit the 16th century Old Guildhall museum with its interesting exhibits detailing the town’s diverse history, or relax and just while away the hours on the wonderful sandy beach, separated from the river mouth by the Banjo Pier.
