North Cornwall, in the south west of England, has so much to offer the visitor and holiday maker. For starters there is the breathtaking and somewhat craggy coastline that cannot fail to impress with high cliffs, golden beaches fishing villages and secret coves.
There is also much inland to enthral and excite you. Market towns, historical villages, castles and moorland are all there waiting to titillate your senses. There is so much to see and do. Pay a visit to or even why not stay in Tintagel.
If you’d like to travel inland as well, you will find many towns and villages that are typically Cornish. Camelford for example, is a lovely and ancient town not far from Bodmin moor or the north coast and a great place to escape the throng of beach tourists for a while. Launceston is a larger town and well worth a visit. Launceston is in fact a walled town the only one of its kind in Cornwall. There is a castle and the town has great historic appeal. Why not take a ride on the Launceston steam railway, it is two and a half miles of pure Cornish joy and you don’t have to be a steam or train enthusiast to appreciate it.
You will find many eateries throughout North Cornwall especially if you are a fish lover. Where ever you venture your taste buds will be rewarded. The famous Rick Stein’s restaurant, in Padstow, is a fine place to dine and enjoy the local catch of the day. Personally I love fish and chips or a locally caught pasty eaten while sat on the harbour side and then, if I am not too full, some Cornish clotted cream fudge, the one with big flakes of coconut on it. Later in the day why not enjoy a pint of local ale or cider, relax and watch the world go by. Needless to say, I personally expect my waistline to expand.
Accommodation is not in short supply where ever you go in North Cornwall, from the humble bed and breakfast to a posh hotel there is somewhere for everyone whether travelling alone or as a family many will even let you take your dog so that they can have a well earned break, from all that being a dog entails, too.
