View From Terrace | River Fowey Estuary Golant | The Cormorant Hotel CornwallCornwall has been named in the top three places to visit in Europe this summer by one of the world's biggest tourist industry experts.

Lonely Planet has placed Cornwall third on its latest list of the top ten best must-see locations.

Lonely Planet has rated the county's rich moorland, rugged coastline and miles of sandy beaches so highly it has put Cornwall above established holiday hot spots like Greece and Italy.

The news is a boost to boutique hotels in Cornwall, as it puts the county firmly on the map and seals Cornwall's place among the global elite of dream destinations.

The news has come just as holidaymakers have started to head to the South West, with forecasts of the warmest weather so far this year.

Here at The Cormorant we're delighted by the news, which has come just a few months after fears were raised that the rail line at Dawlish, closed by storms this winter, would have an impact on tourism based businesses in Cornwall.

The list compiled by lonely Planet is the latest in a long line, with the publisher having printed 100 million books in nine languages.

A team of editors based in London picked the best countries, cities and regions across the European continent to visit for this latest list.

Greece and Ljubljana, in Slovenia, were the only places in Europe to be ranked ahead of Cornwall.
