Having first won the award for the Best UK Holiday Destination at the British Travel Awards back in 2009, Cornwall has now received the much-coveted award for the eighth year running.

Stay at our boutique hotels in Cornwall to see why it won Best UK Holiday Destination

The region's extraordinary feat was announced at the awards ceremony in London, where more than a thousand people from across the travel industry were in attendance. As the British Travel Awards are decided entirely by public vote, the award is proof that Cornwall is a place people love to visit time and time again. The county managed to attain the vast majority of the public vote, outshining a number of other popular regions across the country.

Malcolm Bell, the Chief Executive of Visit Cornwall, who accepted the award said: "Well done Cornwall! To be named as the nation's favourite holiday destination for eight years is a truly incredible achievement.

"Each and every person involved in tourism in Cornwall should be proud of this award. It represents strength in our product, brand and future and is a powerful message to be able to shout across the world.

"Thank you to everyone that has contributed to Cornwall's success and of course, to those who voted."

Cornwall was also successful in a number of other categories at the awards. The Lost Gardens of Heligan scooped the award for Best UK Leisure Attraction, with the Eden Project also taking a Silver award in the category. Bude, in the north of the county, also won the Best UK Coastal Resort award for the second year in a row.

If you have never visited Cornwall before, the British Travel Awards have shown that there has never been a better time to visit. Here at the Cormorant Hotel we are one of the best boutique hotels in Cornwall, offering beautiful views out over the River Fowey as well as close proximity to popular towns and resorts such as St Austell.
