The south coast of Cornwall is famed for its gentle beauty and lush, undulating farmland that runs down to the sea.
Amongst this tranquil landscape you’ll find sandy bays and hidden coves, vertiginous villages that cascade down to tiny fishing harbours and some of the most exotic sub-tropical gardens in the county.
Known as the ‘Cornish Riviera’, beaches such as Hemmick, Gorran Haven and Pentewan are perfect for a bucket-and-spade family day out, and many of the beaches on this stretch of coastline welcome four-legged family members too. These calm waters are perfect for sailing or scuba diving, and the stunning Roseland Peninsula boasts some of Cornwall’s most scenic walks and beautiful whitewashed villages.
Discover the twin castles of Pendennis and St Mawes, head further east to escape the crowds at Lantic Bay or stroll around picturesque Fowey, discovering its artistic heritage and why Daphne Du Maurier called it home during the Second World War.
