Cornwall is a special place - a unique and diverse county blessed with rugged beaches, picturesque villages and a rich history. While there's no shortage of exciting things to see and do, it can help for visitors to have a little insider knowledge in order to get the most from their time in the county. Staying in a B&B is an excellent way to get access to the inside track.
Local Knowledge of Local Breaks
A considerable portion of the holidaymakers making their way to hotels in Cornwall each year have a board strapped to the roof and a wetsuit in the boot. Wherever you're from, you'll know that a successful surf session relies on sound local knowledge. From deceptive tides to hidden rocks, a little inside information from a local can help make sure you get it right!
Booking into one of Cornwall's many B&Bs, you'll have the chance to chat with the owners or staff members about the local breaks. St Breca and The Silver Jubilee Guest House offer friendly and intimate places to stay in the surfing hub of Newquay.
Walking on Cornwall's Moors
Cornwall may be home to some of the country's finest beaches and best breaks, but it's not all about the ocean. The moors offer visitors a plethora of breath-taking walks, with something to suit all abilities.
Rural B&Bs, like Smeaton Farm in Saltash, provide excellent bases from which to explore the tranquil and beautiful countryside of Cornwall. From Smeaton Farm, guest also have easy access to Cotehele House and Gardens, one of the county's foremost attractions.
Accommodation in The West
The west of Cornwall is home to some of the country's most rugged coastline and some culturally rich towns. The Tregony Guest House in St. Ives provides peace and quiet in one of the region's busier towns. Walk to the Tate Gallery in minutes, or ask the staff about one of the region's great walks.
Penzance is an excellent base for those looking to explore the country's extremities. Land's End is just a short drive west, while Lizard Point sits to the far south. The town itself is home to plenty of great bed and breakfasts, and places to shop, eat and drink.
