Cornwall

Crumbly Yarg cheese, meat-stuffed pasties, clotted cream... The endless list of Cornish delicacies literally rolls off the tongue.

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?
