Cornwall is the final frontier of mainland Britain. When you've passed through the wild beauty of Bodmin Moor and taken a quick detour to the surfing hub of Newquay, eventually you'll reach the very tip of the country - Land's End. With so many excellent hotels in Cornwall, this far-western point of the country makes an ideal spot for a United Kingdom holiday.
Walking the Peninsula
The thrill of standing farther west than anyone else in the country is nothing to be sniffed at, but what brings more people to Land's End is the impressive array of walks in the local area. Rugged and natural, this part of Cornwall is home to some of the most spectacular and beautiful coastal landscapes in the country, as well as extensive sections of the well-maintained South West Coastal Pathway.
The gentle walk from Sennen Cove to Land's End is one of the most popular routes, blending picturesque scenes with a dramatic approach to one of the country's best-known landmarks. Those looking for a little more distance can walk to or from the nearby town of St. Just, slightly to the north of Land's End.
Hotels near Land's End
A popular spot with holidaymakers, there's no shortage of good hotels in Cornwall - and particularly in the area around Land's End, ranging from epic castles to intimate bed and breakfasts.
The Tregenna Castle Resort is a unique, grand property in the nearby town of St. Ives. The resort boasts a spa, fitness facilities and free WiFi.
