Visiting Cornwall: 5 Reasons Why You Should Not Skip A Visit to the County

Culturally unique and a mostly water bound county full of legends and myths, Cornwall in South West England is a beautiful place with rich historical values. Cornwall holidays are inherently relaxing, peaceful and informative at the same time,and just in case you have never paid a visit to the homeland of the Cornish people, here are five reasons why you shouldchange that as soon as possible.

The Beautiful Beaches
There are over 400 beaches in the county and almost every one of them is well-kept and worth a visit. However, since you will never really be able to visit even a quarter of that in one outing, try to make sure that you at least don’t miss out on experiencing a few hours at the Kynance CoveMawgan Porth Beach, and Harlyn Bay. Some of them are more crowded than others, but the beaches in Cornwall are seldom too crowded for comfort.


The Gardens of Cornwall
The sub-tropical gardens of Cornwall are world famous and they are part of what makes Cornwall holidays a worthy investment of anybody’s time and money. If one had to prioritise their visitsand choose one or two gardens to visitthey would do well to visit the Lost Gardens of Heligan in Mevagissey, the LamorranGardens in St Mawes, the Tresco Abbey Gardens in the Isles of Scilly and, of course, The Eden Project in St Austell. They are all filled with the most exotic plants, trees, bushes and flowers from not just the UK, but also from various corners of the world. Consider The Eden Projectfor instance, which is basically a small rainforest that houses plants from the jungles of South America, South-East Asia, Tropical Islands, and West Africa. On the other hand, just a boat-ride away from the Cornish mainland lies the sub-tropical garden of Tresco Abbey on the Isles of Scilly, which houses gorgeous, tropical flowers whichshould not survive so close to the salty, harsh Cornish climateand yet they thrive here.
Unmatched Relaxation
We mentioned relaxation to be one of the main attractions of visiting this part of South West England and it most certainly is. You will need to head over to North Cornwall and come near Padstow to experience how much of a luxurious and relaxing experience Cornwall Holidays can be. You can rent a luxurious house or a well-stocked cottage from Harbour Holidays in Constantine Bay, Trevone, Harlyn or in any of the many otherbeautiful coastal villages here, and relax at the beach, explore the local scenery, while enjoying the best that the local cuisinehas to offer. You can always stay in the town if you want, as Harbour Holidays also has furnished apartments ready to be rented in the main town as well.
Historical Treasure
The county is rich in heritage and culture related to the Cornish people, so those that find historical landmarks and ruins even remotely interesting will love their visit here. While the list would become too vast to accommodate every historical place that is worth a visit in Cornwall, the following few are arguably the most important ones that everyone should prioritise.
• Pentillie Castle on the bank of River Tamar
• Pendennis Castle in Falmouth
• The ruins of Wheal Coates between Porthtowan and St Agnes
• The open-air Minack Theatre at Porthcurno
• St Michael’s Mount in St Aubyn Estate
• The execution pit of Bodmin Jail at Bodmin Moor
• Cathedral of The Blessed Virgin Mary in Truro
• The ancient and legendary parish of Tintagel
The Tregothnan Tea Plantation
While Brits do like their tea, what most of them do not realise is that England did not have even a single tea plantation before the Tregothnan Tea Plantation came into existence back in 2005. Being the country’s first and only tea plantation, Tregothnan is unique in every sense of the word and if you like your cup of tea in the evening, you should definitely pay a visit to the Tregothnan Tea Estate during your time in Cornwall. Aside from being the only producers of original English tea in the world, Tregothnan is also a stunningly beautiful flower garden to visit,and the floral blooms inside will appeal to everyone, whether they like tea or not!
If you are someone who seeks adventures and thrills, you should be happy to know that there are hidden creeks, sparsely explored beaches, and gorgeous, lonely hilltops to find in Cornwall; just be careful not to run into one of the Beasts of Bodmin MoorThe truth is that once you actually get to Cornwall, you will not need anyone to give you another reason for coming back to it again soon, but until you do, let these five persuade you into giving Cornwall a try this summer.
