St Ives

Located along the north coast from our resort is the beautiful coastal town of St Ives. This place has won a showcase of national tourism awards and was even highlighted as one of the 10 best European beach destinations by TripAdvisor. The town centre itself is jam-packed with independent, boutique shops alongside art galleries, cafes and restaurants. Well worth a visit.

Visit Cornwall's only city


Cornwall may only have one city but, luckily, it is rather special (well, we think so at least). By most modern cities’ standards, Truro is quite small but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in personality. It is packed to the rafters with independent and big-name brand shops (so make sure you pack your credit card). At its heart is a magnificent cathedral, where you simply have to visit…

The Lizard

This rugged and sparsely-populated peninsula is mainland Britain’s most southerly landmass – and is unlike almost anywhere else in Cornwall. Home to large expanses of heathland and stunning, isolated cliff-top fishing communities, the Lizard’s villages of Cadgwith, Coverack, Mullion and Ruan Minor should be on your must-visit list.

Jump in the car and head onto the south coast and visit the picturesque town of Fowey, which is renowned for its natural deep-water harbour that allows it to accommodate some of the world’s largest cruise ships. Lining the main street you will find many small, independent shops selling unusual gifts, artwork, clothing and books.

The seaside town of Looe is still very much a busy working fishing port at heart, despite its popularity with tourists. The town prides itself on it’s fresh fish, and be it award winning fish and chips near the river or gourmet menus in smart restaurants overlooking the harbour, you know you won’t be disappointed.
