Cornwall

Crumbly Yarg cheese, meat-stuffed pasties, clotted cream... The endless list of Cornish delicacies literally rolls off the tongue. Work up an appetite surfing off Atlantic coves, ambling across granite moors or striding out on the South West Coast Path across sandy beaches and wild flower-strewn clifftops. Be prepared for plenty of sky and lots of attractions, days out and family trips that will let you take advantage of the often stunning weather. It's easy to see why England's southwest toe with its super-quaint harbour towns has inspired celebrity chefs to take up residence. Green fingers? Potter round Cornwall's lush gardens that can be found at rambling stately homes and the modern biomes of the Eden Project alike.
