The southwest’s wild Celtic kingdom

Wild, beautiful, creative and rural, Cornwall really is the stuff of legends. Historically a land of ancient myths and Celtic culture, today Cornwall is the perfect holiday idyll. A proudly unique and independent spirit is nurtured within this south-westerly peninsula, which is fringed with mighty sea cliffs, quaint harbour towns, beautiful bays and stunning beaches. Inland, the wild and woody interior conceals magical gardens and innovative projects, and the lovely towns are a treasure trove of excellent seafood restaurants, vibrant cafés and crafty souvenir shops.

However we use several hotels in Cornwall and these come at substantially higher rates. These include the Lanhydrock Hotel, Penventon Park Hotel, Esplanade Hotel and Fistral Beach Hotel.

Generally group availability is scarce between May-September and rates are at a premium, so we suggest travelling in March / April / October.

  • Lanhydrock (NT)

    A magnificent, high-Victorian manor house, Lanhydrock is perhaps the finest estate in Cornwall. Offering a fascinating glimpse into the lives of its former inhabitants, the house has extensive servants’ quarters which contrast with the elegance and comfort of the family rooms, and a dramatic history to discover. Outside, the wonderful gardens offer year-round colour and beautiful herbaceous borders, and the wider estate has tranquil woodland to explore.

  • Lost Gardens of Heligan

    Once a grand 19th century estate, the gardens here were forgotten after WWI and a tangle of weeds and brambles took over. However, following a chance rediscovery of a door in the ruins, the gardens have been lovingly restored in true secret garden style, and now form a horticultural wonder. With a network of historic pathways winding through formal lawns, twisted rhododendrons, mysterious grottos, and exuberant jungle, the Lost Gardens of Heligan are a magical and romantic delight.

  • St Ives
    St-Ives- -Adam-Gibbard-and-Visit-Cornwall

    With its golden bays, colourful fishing boats and sparkling harbour, St Ives is iconically Cornish. The dreamy views and white sands have long been admired, but since the 1920s St Ives has become renowned for its modern art scene, providing a muse to abstract sculptor Barbara Hepworth and British potter Bernard Leach, amongst many others. Today, St Ives is home to one of the Tate galleries – a striking beachside exhibition space – and many studios and workshops can be found amongst the shops, restaurants and cafés of this vibrant & creative town.
