Holidays in Cornwall

The rugged and romantic pull of Cornwall with its legends and tales of smuggling and magic has its own special blend of National Park with the dark and brooding presence of Bodmin Moor.
 
A county of contrasts with the rugged cliffs and spectacular beaches on the north coast to the more gentle coastline and estuaries in the south between Pymouth and Falmouth. 
 
Famous places such as the Lizard Point and of course Lands End just 3147 miles from New York!. 
 
Link the coastline together along the magnificent coastal pat, take in breathtaking views and find picturesque Harbour towns like St Ives and Padstow, with Mevagissy and Fowey.
 
Beautifully central is the compact city of Truro, the hub of Cornwall with independent shops, bars, restaurants and a traditional market all wrapped around its cathedral in the heart of the city.    
 
The Royal Cornwall Show is especially famous for its Hobby Horse roaming the streets of Padstow and the Minack Theatre is a rare treat for outdoor entertainment.
