Two projects in Cornwall that encourage tourism to the south-west have been awarded funding as part of a new government scheme that is aiming to boost tourism all across Britain. Our boutique hotel is the perfect place for a holiday in Cornwall and you can also delight in the wonderful food at one of the best restaurants in Fowey.

The new Discover England Fund was revealed by the Government as it pushes its Tourism Action Plan, which aims that tourism spending is spread across the country and not focussed on one area. As 50% of international visitors journey only to London, the Government is also looking to raise the appeal of other parts of the country to overseas visitors.

Last year, tourism generated around £62billion for the UK economy, and the new funding scheme adds another £40million to that economy. Prime Minister Theresa May said tourism is "vitally important" to the UK:

"Many overseas visitors never venture beyond London, so over 50% of their spending is in the capital. While we want tourist numbers to remain high, we also want the benefits of growth to be felt across the whole of the UK. This is a beautiful country, offering so much to see and do throughout, and we must do everything we can to make sure that visitors are encouraged to explore beyond the capital."

The two tourism projects in Cornwall which have received funding are the South West Coast Path and a self-guided app.

The South West Coast Path, which runs a total of 630 miles along the superb south west coastline, has received funding to bring bookable experiences with new technology which will help visitors discover more about the scenery, places to eat and activities they can do along the route. The South West Coast Path is just one of the many fantastic walking routes you can explore near our boutique hotel.

The self-guided activity app is a mapping guide that is already available to tourists in Cornwall but an upgraded version will enable visitors more access to content about local Cornwall attractions, as well as information about public transport and free listings.

If you are looking for the next place for your weekend away, come and stay with us, and discover the great things there are to found in the beautiful county of Cornwall.
