There’s something about the prospect of teetering on Land’s End cliff tops that’s inexplicably alluring. Though, whether you’ll get there is another matter. It’s not that it’s too far – it’s simply that holidays in Cornwall are so distracting. If you’re not watching surfers ride the seemingly impossible waves, you’re trekking the lengthy coastal path, meandering along farm tracks or buying something crafty and local in a village so picturesque it almost hurts. Of course, all this is immaterial if you’ve happened upon Bodmin Moor. You’ll not be lost in the wilds – but you could well just be too smitten to even consider going anywhere else.
All these outdoor activities will warrant somewhere you’ll get a good night’s sleep. And, frankly, your choices in Cornwall are joyfully quaint, quirky and eclectic. Cast aside any thoughts of a generic hotel stay. Here? You’re looking at pods, tipis, yurts, treehouses, log cabins and just about anything that doesn’t remotely resemble traditional hospitality. Holidays in Cornwall are for far more exploring. Getting back to nature? There’s an element of that, if you want it. But for everyone – however you spend your time. It’s about pure indulgence. Be it pasties or picking the best spot to watch the world go by. Just enjoy every second.
