Cornwall: an ancient Celtic land

This ancient Celtic peninsula is a windswept land of cliff-flanked sandy beaches, starkly beautiful moorland and meadows filled with blooming wildflower. The age-old industry of mining may have had its day, but during the summer the county thrives on tourism, with vacationing families who come for a little seaside break away from the big cities. If you stay in a Cornwall vacation rental, you can expect the ruins of ancient castles, stately homes and English gardens, not to mention some of the best surf in the country and the renowned domes of the Eden Project.

Things to do

Ancient ruins in Cornwall

One of the county's draws is the plentiful National Trust properties and gardens. You won't have to drive far from your Cornwall vacation rental to visit one of the stately homes surrounded by manicured English gardens. The list of attractions in Cornwall is exhaustive, but there are some standouts you shouldn't miss. The 700-year-old ruins of Tintagel Castle look like they came straight out of Games of Thrones, while the windswept Land's End looks out over the Atlantic and is England's most westerly point. The botanical gardens housed in the Eden Project's biomes are reason enough to visit Cornwall.


Hit the surf in Cornwall

When you stay in a Cornwall vacation rental along the coast, you can make the most of the county's long list of activities. If you charter one of the yachts in the harbor, you could take it for a spin out at sea or join one of the sailing schools to learn how. Cornwall is Britain's premier surfing location and whether you're new to the sport or a seasoned pro, you'll find consistently good waves rolling up onto its shores. Off the water, the fun doesn't stop. There are some gorgeous coastal walks that wind around Cornwall's beautiful shoreline.


For consistent weather in Cornwall, summer's best

Weather-wise, you're always throwing the dice when you visit British shores but if you're looking for the most consistently good sunshine, try scoring a Cornwall vacation rental between July and August. If you catch it right, the Cornish summers can be glorious. If you don't mind a drop in the temperature, you could always try spring or fall and skip the summer crowds. The beaches might not be as appealing, but the attractions are always on-hand and if the heavens open, you could always dive into one of the cozy country pubs for a pint and a bite to eat.

Natural features

Soaring peregrine falcons in Cornwall

Cornwall has a long and varied list of wildlife which thrive around the waterways, the moorland and the coasts. In spring, the meadows burst into color as the wildflower blooms and makes for the best season for spotting critters. Soaring peregrine falcons are not uncommon, nor are the rock doves in the county's towns. If you're walking, look out for colorful butterflies and dragonflies, particularly on the warm summer days and be careful not to step on hedgehogs that roll up along the footpaths. Down along the coast, seals congregate on the pebble beaches and rocks, while enormous basking sharks can be seen out at sea.
