Cornwall

Cornwall is one of the most beautiful counties in Britain - defined by its magnificent coastline with 300 miles of dunes and cliffs, medieval harbours and oak-forested creeks. Its unspoilt coastline has inspired thousands of painters and sculptors - as well as surfers and hikers who come to see the rugged beauty of the boulder-strewn moorland, and deep blue sea.
