This south west county enjoys a milder climate than much of England, and consequently Cornwall has long been a popular all year round self catering holiday getaway. The North Cornwall area provides the best surfing in England, with towns like Newquay, Perranporth, Polzeath, St Ives and Bude filling with enthusiasts every year. West Cornwall has a spectacular rugged coastline and an ever changing landscape. Cornwall is an all weather location that offers something for everyone.
The gateway to St Michael's Mount, Marazion has a unique identity of it's own. A small market town, pretty and with plenty of history with an almost mythical causeway leading to the Mount that reveals itself at low tide. With a sandy beach that continues all the way to Penzance and offering an array of galleries, shops and restaurants - it's certainly worth a visit.
