The West Country region
Cornwall, in the far west corner of Great Britain, is a stunning peninsula surrounded by the sea on three sides. The incredible rugged coastline is interspersed with sandy beaches, fishing harbours and secret coves. The Cornish mining, smuggling and fishing history gives a fascinating context to the landscape.
St Ives is a beautiful harbour with winding cobbled streets, its own sandy coves looking out over St Ives Bay, Lelant saltings and the Hayle estuary on one side and straight out to the Atlantic on the other. For many years, the incredible light, sunsets and scenery has attracted artists such as Alfred Wallace, Barbara Hepworth and Bernard Leach.
There is still a buzzing arts scene as well as a great selection of places to eat and drink. A fun place to wander round the shops. Also, an ideal spot for a bucket and spade and ice cream holiday with some brilliant beaches for swimming and building sandcastles. If you prefer to get in the sea, there's some good windsurfing, surfing and kite surfing beaches nearby and great places to explore on a kayak.
