Sixty miles of dramatic Heritage Coastline, sandy beaches, hidden coves and pretty fishing villages, wooded river valleys, bustling market towns and the beguiling beauty of Bodmin Moor. Whether it’s a short break or longer, North Cornwall offers quality hotels, bed and breakfasts, guesthouses, self catering and caravan and camping parks.

North Cornwall also has quality attractions including the world famous Eden Project, stunning country houses, medieval castles and many areas to explore including Bude - a premier resort, Crackington Haven, Boscastle, King Arthurs Tintagel and Port Isaac, all hidden in the most spectacular cliffs in Cornwall.
