What would we do without the South West and the sun, fun, surfing and endless golden sands that it brings?

But Devon and Cornwall are about more than just wetsuits, bikinis and sandcastles. The region is home to some of the coolest festivals and the best chefs in the country. Nor are its attractions confined to the summer months… Cornwall’s famous sub-tropical gardens and the all-year Eden Project alone see to that. And then there are the cream teas, bracing coastal walks, enchanting manor houses, the hills, valleys and wild moors – Dartmoor, Exmoor, Bodmin Moor – that can be enjoyed at any time of the year. As for the Isles of Scilly, nowhere in the British Isles is the light – on a clear day – as translucent and beautiful, nor the feeling of being far from home so strong.
