South Cornwall HOLIDAYS

South Cornwall has the perfect mix of seaside and rural life with pretty hamlets, fishing ports and smuggler’s coves. South Cornwall has many National Trust properties, quiet sandy beaches and wonderful towns that offer you beautiful boutiques, independent shops and inspired places to eat overlooking the sea or the countryside.

South Cornwall holidays call out for a visit to the famous Eden Project, situated just outside of St Austell and whilst in the area pop to Charleston Harbour to see the tall ships or take a walk on the China Clay Trails.

The Lizard Peninsula is a super place for a long walk next to the sea and is peppered with great pubs and harbour towns. Further along the coast is Newlyn, a town renowned for its art culture and Fowey with its annual August Regatta. Looe and Polperro with St George’s Island are also well worth a visit.
