Cornwall Hotels

The county of Cornwall spans the southwestern foot of England, a spacious peninsula of soft-green rolling hills, ancient forests, and sun-kissed sandy beaches. There are many towns and old-world villages specked throughout the county, each offering a slice of fascinating Cornish history - from the tiny city of Truro to the buzzing port town of Falmouth. With a perfect mix of lush outdoors and fascinating heritage towns, Cornwall offers something for everyone.

Things to see

There’s so much to do, see, and explore in Cornwall, that it’s difficult to know where to begin - but these top Cornish sights aren’t to be missed. Start you bright Cornwall morning by visiting the Eden Project, a series of bio-domes set in a grassy vale near St Blazey. Each dome contains a different type of plant life - from the swaying banana trees of the balmy tropical dome to the flourishing grape vines of the dry Mediterranean dome. After you’ve visited this man-made paradise, head over to Mount’s Bay, and see St Michael’s Mount, a rocky tidal island capped with a towering castle and 15th century stone chapel. At low tide, you can walk out across the beach over the causeway to the island, and visit these tree-shaded heritage sites. Afterwards, culture-fiends should head to magical Land’s End. Near here, you’ll find the Minack Theatre, a cliff-face open air theatre cut into the rock, facing the wild Cornish sea - you’ll not soon forget catching a show here.
