We've selected our favourite of Cornwall's most beautiful and interesting places to visit in 2022
Precariously positioned on the rugged North Coast of Cornwall, Tintagel’s 13th-century castle has inspired writers and artists for centuries. The castle clings to the headland and the dramatic steps and bridges between the ruins are not for the faint-hearted.
Mousehole (pronounced Mowzal) is one of Cornwall's most picturesque and charming fishing villages. This harbourside location is foodie heaven and local dishes often take inspiration from the sea, with shellfish in abundance.
One of the most popular destinations in Cornwall, Polperro is a largely unspoilt fishing village on the southeast coast. The beach here is small and sandy and sports a fabulous little tidal pool ideal for first-time swimmers. Pretty cottages cling to the steep hillside of this quaint harbour.
The St Germans Viaduct
The all stone, Grade II listed St Germans Viaduct was built in 1908 to provide a link on the line which ran from Plymouth to Falmouth. Standing at 106 ft high, the viaduct spans the River Tiddy and is a stunning place to go for a walk, swim or sail.
Fowey Harbour is nestled on the South Cornish coast between Plymouth and Falmouth. The harbour is situated on the western side of the Fowey River and bound by other towns and villages including Golant and Lostwithiel. Locals say the port is "littered with sunken boats bought by drunk amateurs".
The word picturesque could have been coined for Port Isaac. The narrow winding streets are lined with whitewashed cottages, many of which are now listed due to their historical importance and pleasing aesthetic. Wander down to the harbour where you will find local fishermen landing their daily catch each morning.
Renowned for its dazzling beaches, award-winning restaurants, vibrant art scene and historic cobbled streets, St.Ives is one of Cornwall's most picturesque seaside towns. Its active fishing boats supply many of the region's finest restaurants.
Sparkling azure water and powdery sand greet you at Kynance Cove, one of the prettiest locations in Cornwall on the west side of the Lizard. Owned by the National Trust, a steep walk takes you down to the beach below, and at low tide you can view the distinctive serpentine rock formations, caves and rock stacks.
