Why You Need To Visit Cornwall
There are so many reasons to visit Cornwall, or Kernow as it’s also known, from the beautiful beaches to the famous pasty, Cornwall also boasts the longest Coastline of any English county, over 1000km of it, and you can experience it all from the comfort of Hoburne Doublebois. Here are just some of the things you can do in England’s most southwest county.
Newquay is famed for its beaches, they attract more than 5 million visitors a year, and it’s
easy to see why. Golden sands and turquoise waters, protected by sheer cliffs, many of
Cornwall’s beaches look like a tropical paradise. The beaches are family friendly with over
50 beaches watched over by lifeguards.
If you want to take your trip to the beach one step further then surfing is that step,
Cornwall offers some world class surfing, Fistral Beach & Perranporth are some of the
most famous spots, but you can surf all over Cornwall, just remember to bring your wet
suit, the waters aren’t quite tropical temperatures.
THE EDEN PROJECT
Cornwall is also the home to the largest captive rainforest in the world. The Eden Project
houses two biomes which hold over 1000 varieties of plants from Southeast Asia, West
Africa and Tropical South America. Due to the environment these plants live in, the
Biomes have to stay at a warm temperature, anywhere between 18 to 35 degrees
SCENIC TOWNS AND VILLAGES
Cornwall’s beauty lies in the small towns and villages scattered throughout the county,
from Falmouth to Padstow, Looe to Polperro, each have their own unique quirks and
attractions. From the Fal Estuary at Falmouth, St Michael’s Mount near Penzance, and
famed seafood restaurants in Padstow where fresh seafood is served that was caught
locally earlier that day; you can’t get fresher than that. Looe and Polperro both within 30
minutes of Hoburne Doublebois offer idyllic villages to explore, visit Looe Island once a
holy pilgrimage site, nowadays it's a sanctuary for rare plants and wildlife.
CORNISH PASTIES & CREAM TEA
You can’t visit Cornwall without trying some of the local delicacies, The Cornish Pasty
being the most famous, historically the lunchtime choice for Cornwall’s miners, it’s now a
staple for visitors from all over the world. Follow that with some clotted cream on a
scone or a Cornish split (Just remember the Cornish way is jam first, then cream).
Cornwall has a long history with pirates, it was in Cornwall where they would smuggle goods in and out of the country, and you can visit tunnels in Perranporth and Penzance that smugglers used to get their loot into the hands of the merchants. Polperro was infamous as a smugglers haunt, or visit the Jamaica Inn and relive the smugglers' experience at their Smugglers Museum – it houses the most extensive collections of smuggling artefacts in the UK.
COASTLINE WALKS AND SIGHTS
Cornwall has more coastline than any other English county, over 1000km of it, so you can
get out and experience clifftop walks like nowhere else. Take in the breathtakingly
beautiful Minack Theatre, or track down locations from the most recent series of Poldark,
with filming taking place in St Agnes, Charlestown and Porthgwarra, or visit the magical
Lost Gardens of Heligan.
With so much to do in the UK’s most visited county you will need somewhere to relax and
unwind, and Hoburne Doublebois is just the place, offering a peaceful and beautiful location to
go and explore all of Cornwall.
