Self-catering holiday rentals in Cornwall, England for your home stay
You don't have to spend long in Cornwall to understand why the region is so popular with visitors. With amazing scenery, a dramatic coastline with fantastic beaches and a deeply mystical heritage - not to mention weather than is consistently better than the rest of the UK - it's a place travellers return to time and again. Cornwall is rich in both legend and history. Tintagel Castle is said to be the birthplace of King Arthur himself but it's also incredibly young and modern with towns such as Newquay and St Ives popular with surfers. Other noteworthy towns include St Ives which now has its own branch of the Tate gallery, Veryan where you will find one of the largest burial mounds anywhere in Britain and Turo - the only city in the entire country. Dozens of picturesque former fishing villages line both sides of the coast such as Looe, Fowey and Saltash.One of the highlights of any trip to Cornwall is a visit to the Eden project. Open all year round, this attraction features two vast domes which contain an enormous collection of flora from all over the world. Another popular family activity is to visit Land's End - the most South-Western point in Britain which offers views out across the Atlantic Ocean. There are also dozens of festivals to enjoy. One of the oldest takes place in the town of Helston and is known as the Furry Dance - people travel from all over the world in order to take part. Another great spectacle is the Shrove Tuesday Hurling - a festival based around a medieval ball game that takes place in St Ives over a distance of almost two miles. With so many tourists visiting all year round, it's little wonder that the people of Cornwall have earned a reputation for their warmth and hospitality, adding a further dimension of pleasure to every trip there.
