Cornwall

Cornwall is defined by its glorious coastline. It’s a 100-mile-long peninsula at the extreme south-western tip of England. The north coastline is dramatic but with sandy surfing beaches and hidden coves, while the south is gentler, with fishing villages and unspoilt bays. There’s plenty to discover inland, too, with the mysterious Bodmin Moor and over 60 gardens to explore.
