Cornwall lies on the southwest peninsular of the UK. It has a milder climate than the rest of the country which means it is an excellent place to visit and enjoy.

Cornwall is most famous for it's stunning scenery: from attractive fishing villages to the vibrant, colourful countryside there is always so much to see. It has a strong industrial heritage with engine houses that litter the place as if nature put them there. Ancient celtic stones and crosses also dot the countryside whilst the miles of stunning beaches make it almost impossible to choose a favourite.

There are also numerous attractions to visit with something for everyone. The famous Eden Project is a must for plant lovers and for art enthusiasts there are over 25 galleries in St Ives, inlcuding the popular Tate St Ives.

Cornwall also has it's fair share of excellent restaurants and bars including Jamie Oliver's Fifteen at Watergate Bay and Rick Stein's four restaurants in Padstow to name but a few.
