Everyone who lives in Cornwall or comes to Cornwall on holiday will tell you: there’s something special about Cornwall. It’s not always easy to describe until you experience it for yourself, but it probably has something to do with the pace of life, the sea air, the stunning beaches and wide open scenery, the picturesque villages, the genuine welcome and the traditional and tasty food. Coming on holiday to Cornwall means you can take a trip away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, make the most of the outdoors and enjoy spending time with family and friends.
Cornwall has the longest stretch of coastline of any county in the UK and wherever you are, you’re never more than 16 miles from the sea. So it’s not surprising that water plays a huge part in life in Cornwall, whether it’s getting out for a surf, sail or paddle, tucking into a delicious, locally-caught fish supper or exploring wide, sandy beaches or quiet river banks and coves.
Cornwall also has a thriving arts and cultural scene - from the internationally renowned artists’ colony at St. Ives, where the Tate Gallery and countless other galleries now attract visitors year round, to the thriving local music scenes in towns across the county and big venues like Truro’s Hall for Cornwall and Falmouth’s Princess Pavilion.
Heritage and horticultural attractions also draw people to visit Cornwall from all over the world. And it’s not just the iconic landmarks like Land’s End, St Michael’s Mount and Tintagel, but also a whole host of places of interest stretching through the centuries. Like the prehistoric monuments found from Bodmin Moor to West Penwith, the historic ports and harbours from Fowey to Mousehole and the staggering collections of plants and trees at the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and gardens like Trelissick and Trevarno.
Perhaps the greatest reason to come on holiday to Cornwall is that there isn’t only one Cornwall. Rayle Farm is located just about as close as you can get to the centre of the county, giving you the perfect opportunity to discover a Cornwall that suits you down to the ground, whatever your interests, age or budget.
