Don’t miss a chance to visit The Eden Project's indoor rainforest (+4 (0)1726 811911). It’s the largest in the world and makes a unique setting for seasonal concerts and gigs, with steamy jungles and waterfalls, an ice rink in the winter and year-round treetop walks.

More than just a garden, recovered and restored The Lost Gardens of Heligan near Mevagissey, is a garden for all seasons, so whether you plan to visit in the hazy buzz of mid-summer, or the tranquillity of winter, you are guaranteed a unique experience.


The twin harbours are bustling with busy fishing boats bringing in the catch of the day whilst the bobbing pleasure boats ready to ferry trippers along the coast. The narrow streets satisfy those seeking souvenirs or a bite to eat.


Charlestown is one of Cornwall’s most photogenic villages due to its magnificently authentic Georgian harbour and resident fleet of magnificent sailing ships and has taken starring roles in over 25 TV series. If you time it right you might catch Poldark leaning over the wall!


The home of Daphne Du Maurier, the winding streets run along the river to the sea. Boat trips at the quayside take you up the river to Wind in the Willow country or the quay wall makes an ideal place for dangling crab lines. Shopping enthusiasts will discover buzzy boutiques whilst the other half can find refuge in vibrant cafes and restaurants.


Dating back to the 12th century and the stannary town of Cornwall, Lostwithiel is now a mecca for antique and vintage seekers and offers serious mooching territory with a plethora of eating places. For plant enthusiasts The Duchy Nursery is certainly worth a visit and the tea room provides an excellent sticky bun when sustenance is required.


With its crystal clear waters and remarkable views it is easy to see why Henry VIII built a defensive, coastal fort in St Mawes. A sanctuary for galleries and craft workshops St Mawes also has a fine selection of pubs and restaurants. Fishing trips can be arranged from the quayside when you may catch a glimpse of dolphins or seals if you are lucky.
