The world renowned online and book travel guide Lonely Planet, releases travel tips and guides throughout the year, and their recent Guide to Britain they have included the wonderful county of Cornwall. You can see this beautiful region yourself and explore the stunning scenery nearby at the best of the boutique hotels in Fowey, Cornwall.Fowey River, beautiful to walk along



Other things to see and do in the guide included Stonehenge, Edinburgh, Bath and Snowdonia, but it is no surprise Cornwall has also made it into the guide and part of their Top Things to See and Do list.

Cornwall's entry in the book has been chosen due to the following:

"At Britain's far southwestern extremity, the former kingdom of Cornwall boasts endless miles of coastline with rugged cliffs, sparkling bays, scenic fishing ports and white sandy beaches favoured by everyone from bucket and spade families to sun-bronzed surfers.

"Above the cliffs, the towers of former tin mines now stand like dramatic castles, while inland from the coast is a tranquil landscape of lush farmland and picturesque villages, crowned by the gigantic domes of the Eden Project - a stunning symbol of Cornwall's renaissance."

The short description shows how popular the county continues to be a holiday destination, with the many things to see and do. The delicious food; cream teas, pasties and award-winning seafood, all stated as being another draw, along with the heritage.

Near to Fowey, there are several places to seek out that show Cornwall's heritage at its best, from fishing villages, old mines, castles and stately homes. These buildings and structures make for a lovely day out all throughout the year.

One of our favourite aspects of Cornwall's landscape and what adds to its popularity are the gardens. Though best enjoyed in spring and summer, places such as the Lost Garden of Heligan, Tregrehan Garden and the famous Eden Project are just a few of the gardens to explore in Cornwall, near our hotel. The beautiful flowers and green foliage are wonderful all year, and you can easily spend a day relaxing and seeking out the secluded spots for a romantic moment.
