Did you know that in the most recent British Travel Awards Cornwall won the prestigious Best UK region award? Not only that, St Ives also won the award of the best seaside town in the UK. With accolades like that, who wouldn’t love to take a self catering country cottage holiday in Cornwall? The Eden project of course is also a big attraction in Cornwall and the Lizard Pensinsula is a recognised area of outstanding natural beauty. Of course winning an award doesn’t necessarily mean that Cornwall is the best place in the UK to holiday. What constitutes the best place will differ depending on who you ask. Some people love the solitude, peace and beauty of Scotland for example and some love to return to the same resort year after year because a certain place just captures their heart. But one thing is for sure, from the British Travel Awards, Cornwall comes highly recommended.
