South Cornwall sweeps from the Fal Estuary and Roseland Heritage Coast to the Tamar Valley all on the southern side of the A40. Affectionately referred to as the Cornish Riviera, the triangle between Launceston and Saltash to Truro is another way to think of it. A holiday cottage slap bang in the middle of South Cornwall is the way to explore it. Incorporating the Polperro Heritage Coast, superb sailing at St Mawes, Poldark’s Charlestown, Falmouth’s myriad creeks and coves, and the stunning fishing villages of Fowey and Mevagissey, the South Cornwall coastline with its whitewashed Cornwall cottages is blissful.
Inland look beyond the functional nature of South Cornwall’s bustling towns and cities. St Austell acts as gateway to the world famous Eden Project and sprawling Lost Gardens of Heligan. The cathedral city of Truro with its annual food festival and Christmas market is quite the crowd pleaser. Historic Lostwithiel with ruined Restormel Castle is a pretty riverside town with centuries old buildings.
Off grid, discover stunning cliff top walks and stately homes like Mount Edgcumbe, subtropical gardens like those at Trebah, spectacles like Golitha Falls and wherever you divert from the South Coast West Path.
