The West Country region
Cornwall’s visitors are constantly tempted back to the beautiful coastline, tiny fishing villages, hidden coves and the world-class surfing. Whatever the reason, Cornwall has long cemented its place as one of Britain’s premier holiday destinations.
The small Cornish town of Lostwithiel sits in the Fowey river valley. Along the coastsyou will find small fishing ports, areas of great historical interest and monuments shrouded in myth and legend which give Cornwall much of its character. Inland, you can find remnants of the famous Cornish Tin Mining industry – a profession which gave rise to the invention of the Cornish Pasty! Cornwall is also famous for its ‘eco-attitude’ and you will find many nature reserves throughout the region, such as the Eden Project, which is only half an hour away by road.
