In contrast to North Cornwall, the South offers a gentler, less wild and rugged option, and as a destination, it’s perfect for a relaxing holiday where time seems to move gently by.  A variety of appealing locations can be used as your base, then it’s simple enough to explore the wonderful gardens, villages, beaches, and attractions that await you and your fellow travellers.  Highlights include The Eden Project, The Lost Gardens of Heligan, and Falmouth, and communities such as Truro, Looe, Fowey, Polperro and Mevagissey all have their own distinct appeal. But as well as this, think pirating history, Winston Graham’s Poldark, exhilarating coast path walking and Daphne De Maurier, and you’re getting a picture for just how special South Cornwall is.
