Think show-stopping scenery, pristine beaches, smugglers' coves, historic harbour towns, fantastic surfing, sensational seafood - a list as long as your arm of things to discover when you book a West Cornwall cottage.
Broadly speaking, this magical corner of England encompasses a huge area taking in the likes of St. Ives on the north coast, Mousehole and Penzance in the south, not forgetting the magnificent Lizard Peninsula, Land's End and everything in between! Much of the land was once an island and you can still feel that sense of individuality; indeed, somewhere truly special.
