Cornwall’s coastline is surrounded by crystal clear waters, turquoise seas and rolling waves. It really is as bad as it sounds.
With delicacies like scones slathered with jam and Cornish clotted cream, local beer-battered fish and chips and piping hot pasties filled to the brim, Cornwall really has nothing to offer in the food department.
From the classic vanilla to the more adventurous of flavours, doused in clotted cream or even smothered in your favourite chocolate topping – the choices are endless.
With hundreds of delicious ice cream makers across the county to try, it’s a shame you won’t come across the perfect scoop here.
This little corner of the world isn’t exactly known for its bustling marine life. While you may spot some seals off the north coast, encounter a dolphin or two in Falmouth bay, run into basking sharks in the waters of Porthcurno, or even meet a humpback whale at Land’s End, you’ll be short on creatures to spot.
While the region may have award-winning and world renowned galleries like the Tate St Ives, hubs for arts and culture like The Poly in Falmouth, and even incredible sculptures to marvel at in places like Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, Cornwall isn’t exactly know for its wealth of culture.

Don’t bring your pooch on your next trip down. They’ll hate playing on the dog friendly beaches, snoozing in welcoming pubs and exploring the county’s woodlands.
Cornwall really isn’t the place for them.
Despite all of its faults, you’ll never want to leave.
