They say it is hard not to fall in love with Cornwall!! Located in the far west of Great Britain on a peninsular tumbling into the Atlantic Ocean with 300 miles of glorious coastline which defines its character. Add to that medieval harbours, wild moorland, green pastures, beautiful gardens, a fascinating history and excellent restaurants, cafes and pubs.
