Cornwall (or Kernow to native Cornish speakers) is Great Britain’s most South Westerly region and one of its most captivating vacation destinations.
The picturesque, contrasting coast alternates between golden sandy beaches and dramatic cliffs and has been the inspiration and scene of many legends and stories for centuries. The mythical north coast whipped by Atlantic waves is more rugged, while the south coast is a gentler and greener side, from the deep bays of Falmouth to the peaceful little bays on the Roseland peninsula.
The interior of the country attracts with tin mining villages, the granite rocks of the wonderfully barren Bodmin Moors and with the Lizard peninsula, the most southerly point of Cornwall with a variety of rare plant species.
