(PRWEB UK) 28 March 2014
An ancient county, steeped in tradition and natural beauty and with a rich maritime heritage, Cornwall has long been a popular destination with vacationers not least because it boasts England’s longest stretch of continuous coastline. Here, gorgeous sandy beaches and picturesque coves are punctuated by quaint and unspoilt fishing villages such as Polperro and Mevagissey as well as popular seaside resorts including Padstow, St. Ives, Looe and Penzance.
Away from the coast, Cornwall is equally compelling. The county’s tin mining industry was fundamental to the Industrial Revolution and today, ten of Cornwall’s historic mining sites collectively form Britain’s largest UNESCO World Heritage Site. The varied and naturally beautiful landscapes of Bodmin Moor and the Tamar Valley are perfect for walkers and wildlife enthusiasts, whilst the world-famous Eden Project, devoted to ecological research and conservation, promises visitors a unique and unforgettable experience.
One of the most visited areas in the UK, Cornwall’s irresistible mix of history and culture, natural beauty, delightful towns and villages and endlessly diverse attractions and activities guarantee the county’s continuing popularity with visitors; a fact borne out by its seventh-place spot on the list of the Top Ten Vacation Destinations for 2014 compiled by Alpha Holiday Lettings.
