Cornwall Bed and Breakfasts

Cornwall bed and breakfasts are the ideal way to see this breathtaking county, and meet its happy and charming inhabitants. Stay in Cornwall bed and breakfasts, and you will feel the true spirit of Cornish hospitality, and taste the superb fresh produce of the region.

Cornwall, the legendary birthplace of King Arthur, is steeped in ancient history, myth, and magic dating back as far as the Stone Age. Tucked away at the most westerly extremity of England, the magnificent county of Cornwall is one of the most isolated parts of the British Isles. It is in part for this geographical reason that Cornwall has retained its wild beauty, tempestuous coastline, carefully preserved historical monuments, and luxuriant countryside, which makes this very unique and truly delightful county.

Bordered by the river Tamar and Devon to the East, and the fresh Atlantic breakers which pound the coastline to the North, South and West, Cornwall is almost an island containing its own vibrant language, culture and heritage.

With a clement warm climate similar to that of the West coast of France, Cornwall attracts many visitors each year with its heady mix of the arts, culture, history, great seafood, and dramatic coastline, which makes it a surfer’s paradise. Delight in all the treasures this dramatic county has to offer, when you stay in Cornwall bed and breakfasts for a fantastic family holiday adventure, group get together, or a romantic weekend hideaway for two.

The geographical location of Cornwall to the extreme west of Britain makes it as far from London as the Scottish Borders and Northumberland, and in fact by road from London it takes the same amount of time to reach.

It is this very fact that makes Cornwall as delightful as it is distant and different; yet still part of a greater heritage of the British Isles. Its language has survived centuries of dilution from outside influences, and today you can still see road signs, in both English and Celtic Cornish marking the roads and villages. The residents of Cornwall are warm and friendly, yet terribly proud of their distinctive heritage.

Placed as it is, so far from London and its powers of justice, Cornwall was a haven for pirates and smugglers, in the many coves and bays protected by high cliffs and formidable waves from the strong Atlantic currents. This romantic view of Cornwall still prevails, and the locations of many literary works such as that of Dame Daphne Du Mauier and Sir John Betjeman can still be seen today. The Poldark novels written by Winston Graham, and popularised by the BBC Television drama of the same name, show the very romantic and evocative atmosphere of the Cornish coast, moors, pirates and smugglers.

Relax in Cornwall bed and breakfasts, and enjoy the opportunity to visit historic landmarks, stately homes, great moors, timeless villages, picturesque coastal hamlets that appear to cling to the rocky cliffs, local arts and crafts, outdoor sports, tasty produce, and real fresh air. When people think of Cornwall, they instantly imagine a surfer’s paradise, but Cornwall is so much more than just about surfing, diving, waterskiing, and windsurfing. The beaches are stunning, and perfect for a tranquil afternoon with the family, lying in the sun, eating Cornish ice cream and making sand castles, but get off the beaten track a little and you will find sublime coves, with soft sandy beaches just waiting to welcome you, and all within easy reach of Cornwall bed and breakfasts.

There is so much to see and do in Cornwall. For the more energetic, try the South West coastal path, which runs around the Cornish coast. The route between Penwith and the Lizard is definitely the most dramatically beautiful and well known. The disused railway line from the famous fishing village of Padstow to Wadebridge, Bodmin, and Wendford Bridge is now a brilliant cycle path and walk, called the Camel Trail.

During your break in Cornwall bed and breakfasts take the time to visit: The Eden Project near St Austell, which houses an amazing plant collection, in its space age domes. St Michaels Mount, the beautiful tidal island near Penzance. The historic Tintagel Castle is the legendary birthplace of King Arthur, and the seat of the Kings of Cornwall. Consider also The Tate Gallery in St Ives, The National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, Penlee House, famous for the Newlyn School of Art, the stunning traditional Cornish village of Mousehole, Prideaux Place stately home near Padstowor the wonderful fishing village of Padstow, and its many seafood restaurants, including that of Rick Stein the famous seafood chef.
