Where is Cornwall?
Approximately 250 miles from London in a pretty remote part in the far southwest of England, Cornwall is a fascinating destination boasting some of the most dramatic and finest scenery in England.
Did you know Cornwall is also known as Kernow?
It’s almost completely surrounded by the sea – it’s bordered to the south by the English Channel, to the west and north by the Atlantic Ocean, and to the east by River Tamar which forms most of the border between Cornwall and Devon.
This made it easier to find those sea views!
Why holiday in Cornwall?
Charming fishing towns, quaint hamlets, and one of the longest coastlines in the UK, there are a thousand and one reasons to holiday in Cornwall. Maybe it’s easier to ask why not holiday in Cornwall?
Cornwall beaches are renowned the world over thanks to their clear waters, deserted coves, and thriving surf scene. The county boasts over 250 miles of coastline, with over 300 beaches to offer which means beach bums will be spoilt for choice.
Some of the best beaches here include Porthcurno in West Cornwall, Kynance Cove in the Lizard Peninsula, and Crantock Beach in North Cornwall.
In addition to beautiful pristine beaches, Cornwall is also one of the warmest counties in the UK which makes it an excellent beach vacation destination for most of the year.
