There is an abundance of opportunities for visitors to the county to take full advantage of everything Cornwall has to offer. Watersports are a favourite of many locals and holidaymakers alike, taking advantage of the breath-taking coastline, and the many charming beaches.

There is also the opportunity to take advantage of the wonderful countryside on offer, with country walks and hikes a firm favourite of many tourists.

For the more adventurous holidaymaker, an aerial tour of the county can highlight the many qualities that has sent Cornwall to the top of the pile.

Steeped in history, many visitors often head to one of the many Cornish Tin Mines, protected by the Cornish Mining World Heritage to learn about the history of the county. Another option may be to take one of the many walking routes around Bodmin moor or the Fowey River, and hear stories of folklore that have made this county a favourite for generations.

This news goes hand in hand with the fact that Cornwall was the fifth most searched holiday destination of 2014; and it was the only UK based destination in the top 10.
