Out & About
With names such as Rick Stein and Jamie Oliver now tied to the county, it isn’t hard to see why Cornwall is developing international acclaim when it comes to great food. And it’s not only the traditional seafood that attracts connoisseurs. Cornwall boasts numerous must-try pubs and restaurants. See Eating Out for just some of the many we would like to recommend.
The fantastic quality of Cornwall is that there is something here that will appeal to everyone, whatever their interests or age. Water sports are the obvious pull for the adventurous, and away from the beach there are copious opportunities for golf, tennis, pitch and putt, fishing, riding and much more. Whether you want an adrenaline rush or a quiet walk, there are activities here to suit you. See Activities for some of the things you can do during your stay.
Cornwall is a feast for the senses. With a climate that encourages highly unusual trees and plant life, the county boasts an array of original and beautiful gardens. In contrast with this lush, almost tropical element, Cornwall is also wonderfully rugged, with ancient stone circles and tin mines that carry you back many centuries. The world famous Eden Project draws people to the county, but there are many lesser known gems that we think you should experience while you’re here.
