One of the Warmest Counties in the UK
Cornwall is an English county located in the most westerly part of the country with a population of over 500,000. It is generally known as a holiday venue for Britons who enjoy the open-air lifestyle, which it easily affords with plentiful open land and stunning sandy beaches. In addition, the coastal areas undulate from clear, white sand to rocky cliffs high above the sea.
It benefits from an absence of any major cities in the UK so the roads and small villages are usually sparsely populated except of course for the high season in the Summer months when the population can more than double due to the tourists who flock to the region.
Beaches and Cliffs
The capital and only city in Cornwall is Truro but with a population of less than 100,000 it is not considered a major town. However it does have splendid architecture and some of the best restaurants in the county so its a great location for a weekend break.
If you prefer the coast then head for Padstow or Newquay. Padstow is on the north west coast and is quite rocky but has some fabulous cliff top walks and neighbouring villages, which are rather old fashioned but certainly very quaint.
Newquay is the surfing capital of Cornwall if not the surfing capital of the UK and attracts thousands of tourists in the Summer months who can enjoy the long sandy beaches the 30ft-plus waves for surfing.
Bracing Walks in the North or Relaxing Beaches in the South
The North and South coasts of Cornwall are vastly different from one another. The North is more exposed due to its connection to the Atlantic Ocean and swimming in this region should often be done with the protection of a swimsuit (unless it’s an unusually hot day). The wind can also be quite strong and chilly so a warm sweater is advised if you take a stroll along the cliff tops.
The south coast is also known as the Cornish Riviera and is much more sheltered than the North and the beaches are often less windy and the water much warmer because it connects to the English Channel. There are also some lovely, picturesque fishing village on the south coast so if you prefer a more relaxing holiday experience then maybe the south is more suited to you than the North.
Having said that both are lovely and have their own special characteristics, which make this county one of the most popular in the UK.
