From luxury hotels in Cornwall to family friendly beach breaks

From Falmouth to Plymouth, Fowey to St Ives, Cornwall is one of the most rugged and breathtakingly beautiful coastlines in the UK. Taking you to the southernmost point of the South West, Cornwall is brimming with romantic, historic and world leading tourist attractions. They range from the eco park Eden Project to the subtropical Lost Gardens of Heligan, the exquisite Mince Theatre to King Arthur’s Tintagel Castle.

The famously dramatic Lizard to surfing in Newquay and of course, seaside pottering in Port Isaac, home of ITV’s Doc Martin. The Cornish coast offers variety, tranquility and entertainment in equal measure.

Walk along the coast path and meander down to secret beaches, tucked away in dreamy coves. Visit historic villages and learn the stories of smugglers, pirates and their adventures. Enjoy water sports or simply experience family quality time on the beach with a good old fashioned bucket and spade.

All these qualities are reflected in the beauty of Cornwall’s hotels as well. From the superbly stylish family friendly hotels like hotel Tresanton in St Mawes to the warm and cosy restaurants with rooms like Coombeshead Farm. Luxurious hotels in Cornwall such as Pentillie Castle at St Mellon to spa hotels such as the exceptional Scarlet at Mawgen Porth, that brings the beauty of the great outdoors inside to enhance the true sense of relaxation on holiday.

A holiday in Cornwall showcases the variety and extent of what it is to holiday in the UK, all in a spectacularly beautiful part of the world.
