Cornwall's south coast is a green and gold tapestry of wooded hills dropping down to secluded coves, of inlets the hide enchanted fishing villages or yacht anchorages and pilgrim trails that wind past sleepy farms and ancient stones.
With a vast diversity of activities, you might fish for trout, salmon or shark, visit the Humid Tropics & Mediterranean at the Eden Project, cycle on off-road trails, enjoy a local Carnival or Feast week, sail in a major Regatta, or ride as Daphne du Maurier did, far from crowds on a moor as old as time itself.
The curves of St Austell Bay, golden with beaches, a haven for watersports and full of interest; Mevagissey's working fishing harbour, the nearby lazy suntraps of Portmellon & Gorran Haven, Caerhayes Castle proudly gazing across its own beach, the inland castle of Restormel and the River Fowey - from trout stream to the deep-water Port of Fowey town. And above them all - the white peaks of the China Clay industry above St Austell at the centre of the Cornish Riviera.
Truly a superb setting for your holidays
