It has unique and proud traditions and a huge amount of character. Book hotels in Cornwall to explore a true beauty of Britain...
Whether it's an afternoon on the sands or a morning hitting the waves, a hike through the countryside or a visit to the Eden Project, maybe a tour of the old tin mines or a look at the legendary Tintagel Castle: a holiday in Cornwall is bound to excite any eager visitor, no matter what their age or interests.
Wherever you stay in Cornwall, hotels are certain to offer a good Cornish cream tea, but don't miss out on the opportunity to sample several on your travels! Other musts on the list should include a trip to Tintagel Castle, with its absolutely stunning location and scenery. The castle features heavily in Arthurian legend. It's said to be the birthplace of King Arthur and the nearby Merlin's Cave was made famous by the writings of Tennyson. Or if you're of more scientific a mind then the observatory at Goonhilly has more than 60 giant satellite dishes and makes for an educational day out.
For those who love walking holidays, Land's End is ideal. It's also a good location from which to explore the old tin mines at Geevor. With lots of pretty harbours, the area is ideal too for bird spotters as well as walkers. Other good starting points for holidays involving lovely walks include Tamar Valley, Bodmin Moor and Helston. Each has its own character but all offer some truly lovely scenery and wildlife.
Cornwall is a lively place to visit all year round but there are certain times of the year that are particularly good, such as during the Golowan Festival that is held each year in Penzance. Golowan is, in the Cornish tongue, the word for the midsummer festival and while these festivals are held across the county, Penzance has been particularly successful at reviving the old traditions of the region. The festival is an experience to be remembered. Hotels in Cornwall will naturally be busy during this period, so do book early to avoid being disappointed.
