There is so much more to Cornwall than just fabulous scenery and beautiful beaches. The history of this county is rich and vivid, and never more so than when remnants of its past are stumbled upon during rambling walks through the countryside. Cornwall has been voted Favourite UK Holiday County or Region at the British Travel Awards for a number of years. Towns and villages that date back hundreds of years, with stories of wreckers and legends of old, are there to be imagined when walking through narrow winding streets down to the harbour. And to bring you bang up to date, there are modern art galleries to discover plus fantastic shopping with high street stores and unique boutiques and craft shops side by side.
Godolphin Cross is a tranquil village situated in West Cornwall. The village is just 5 KM from the beaches of the South Coast and yet only 10 KM from the beaches of the North Coast. The village has easy access to all the major attractions in the area but is a haven away from it all at the end of the day. Godolphin Village is on established walking routes and has the National Trust Godolphin House and Estate within 0.5 KM. The area is rich in mining history and the iconic tin mines chimneys are seen around the area. For those looking for a more active stay there are : 12 golf courses within a 20 KM range, The South West coastal path, sea fishing from Porthleven and Penzance, surfing beaches (North and South coast), art galleries abound in the local area with St Ives and Falmouth both offering exceptional galleries. St Ives is also the location for the Tate Gallery and the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. Being a major holiday destination, there are numerous award winning restaurants in the area specialising in a range of foods but with fresh fish being a regular on the menu.
