Cornwall is a unique place with its own strong identity. The natural beauty of the county, of which the locals are so proud, attract huge numbers of holidaymakers each year, and with good reason. The county boasts some of the UK's most awe-inspiring coastline and some of its prettiest fishing villages and stretches of countryside. The perfect way to take it all in is to book into one of the country's many independent hotels
Embrace the Cornish Identity
The Cornish identity is a large part of what draws so many visitors to the county. Friendly, laid-back and welcoming, the feel of the county is embodied best in its independent hotels. Unconstrained by an external brand, independent hotels are free to offer guests the authentic Cornish experience. Guests can also speak with the knowledgeable staff members to learn about the best things to see and do in their area.
Many independent hotels are housed in unique buildings, many of which fit perfectly into their surroundings, helping to tell the story of the environment. Molesworth Manor is one such hotel. The family-run bed and breakfast sits within an old rectory, on the edge of Padstow.
Guest Houses in Newquay
Newquay is one of Cornwall's liveliest towns, and the epicentre of the UK's surf scene. Getting the most from the town is all about having access to local knowledge, which is most easily achieved by speaking to the staff of an independent hotel or guest house.
Local knowledge will help ensure you have a memorable trip. From knowing which local break is best at low tide with an offshore breeze, to knowing where the best DJs will be playing in town on a weekend evening, a bit of local know-how can be priceless.
Relax in Rural Cornwall
Even away from the coast, Cornwall is full of natural beauty. The many rural hotels are ideal for visitors seeking some rest and relaxation. The Retallack Resort and Spa offers a peaceful location, as well as a whole host of relaxing spa facilities. There are also a number of excellent spa hotels in and around the south coast town of Falmouth.
