With its breath-taking landscapes, tranquil coves and gentle pace of life, Cornwall is a brilliant place to relax. Located at the very tip of the country, it truly does offer an opportunity for holidaymakers to escape for the duration of their trip. Thanks to the number of people who head to the county in search of peace, Cornwall is full of exquisite spa hotels and resorts, waiting to put a smile on your face.
Whether you're looking for somewhere to sunbathe in the summer or somewhere to unwind in the winter, a swimming pool is a welcome addition to any hotel. For a spa hotel, though, it's an absolute must.
Despite its location near a number of excellent swimming beaches, the Sands Resort Hotel and Spa offers guests a selection of pools to choose from. The indoor pool offers a peaceful place to swim, and there's a dedicated kids' pool elsewhere to ensure that things remain quiet.
If you're after complete relaxation on your trip to Cornwall, it makes sense to book into a hotel which offers a full range of spa treatments. The Cornwall Hotel Spa and Estate, located just outside St Austell, provides just about everything from massages and scrubs to manicures and pedicures. There's also an impressive restaurant on the site.
While there's no shortage of well-equipped spa hotels in Cornwall, one of the best ways to relax on holiday is simply to get out and enjoy a walk. Thanks to its miles of stunning coastline, Cornwall is an ideal place to walk by the sea. The extremities of the UK - at Land's End and Lizard Point - offer particularly unique and dramatic settings for a relaxing walk.
There are also plenty of excellent walks in the centre and east of Cornwall. Bodmin Moor boasts a network of trails to suit all abilities. From the heady heights of Brown Willy to the mysterious lakes like Dozmary Pool, where King Arthur is said to have been given Excalibur, there's so much to be discovered on the Moor - perfect for a romantic walk.
