Regional Information

The county of Cornwall has the longest stretch of coastline in the UK, almost 300 miles. The North Coast is rugged with dramatic cliffs, steep valleys and spectacular coves; the South Coast is more sheltered offering fine golden sands. There are over 150 glorious beaches to choose from.

Inland, Cornwall offers green fields, rolling hills and woodland with Bodmin Moor offering a contrast of wild, exposed upland and granite moorland.

The Cornish climate can be described as mild throughout the year, as it is surrounded by the sea and benefits from the effects of the Gulf Stream. The weather can be changeable and different on the North Coast from the South Coast, this means you can generally find good weather somewhere in the region.

Cornwall has maintained a strong sense of place and community with many traditions and values adding much to the attraction of the county.

Truro is the bustling Cathedral City of Cornwall and a historic Market Town; it is also the centre for administration, commerce and tourism. Truro also still thrives as a port and is set at the head of the Truro River, which flows to Falmouth. The Hall for Cornwall theatre complex attracts a wide range of top performers and events from classical to rock concerts and pantomime to West End touring productions. There are a number of enchanting fishing villages and harbours along the coast such as Looe, Mevagissey, Fowey, Padsow, St Ives and Mousehole to name but a few.

Larger towns such as Newquay, Penzance, Wadebridge, Falmouth and Bude provide vibrant, thriving lifestyle, each unique in their own way.

Village life also thrives in Cornwall offering a real community feel and a genuine sense of community spirit.

Air: As of January 2017 there are direct flights to Aberdeen, Alicante, Belfast, Birmingham, Doncaster/Sheffield, Düsseldorf, Edinburgh, Faro, Frankfurt, Glasgow, Isles of Scilly, Leeds/Bradford, Liverpool, London Gatwick, London Stansted, Manchester and Newcastle.
Exeter and Bristol airports are also accessible.

Trains: Regular intercity services operate from Penzance to London Paddington, stopping at the main line railway link at Liskeard. There are also direct main line services to Bristol, Birmingham and Manchester and connecting services to all over the U.K.

Road: Both the A30 and A38 offer easy access to the M5. The A30 has recently undergone improvements, making the region even more accessible.

Ferry: Ferry services operate from Penzance to the Isles of Scilly and from Plymouth to Northern France and Northern Spain.

Cornwall offers a wealth of land, farms and properties across the region including town houses, country houses, converted barns, coastal properties, cottages and rectories, many changing hands without publicity. The varied locations offer a cornucopia of lifestyles and taking advice from someone familiar with the county will offer you valuable knowledge of the local area.

If you dream of building your own home, we can help you find the perfect location. Companies such as the specialist design and build company Ecohouse (www.ecohouse.co.uk) can guide you through the exciting process of creating a home.

Tourism plays an important part in Cornwall’s economy, due to its mild weather and spectacular landscape. There are often opportunities to purchase hotels, guesthouses, holiday cottages, which offer income whilst enjoying all Cornwall has to offer. Cornwall actively encourages new business to the county. InvestinCornwall (UK and Europe) offers expert advice and support.

Convergence is the European economic regeneration programme for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, which invests in activities and supports businesses that have a long-term impact, hoping to build a stronger more diverse economy.

Work has begun in Cornwall to be one of the first areas in the UK to receive Next Generation Broadband, providing some of the fastest broadband speeds in the world.  This will have a significant impact on businesses in Cornwall, creating thousands of job opportunities and making it one of Europe’s best connected regions.

There are golf courses throughout the county encompassing stunning sea views and fabulous rural settings. Cycling is also very popular, using trails that run along old railway lines such as the Camel Trail. Sailing, surfing and other water sports are more a way of life than a leisure pursuit in this part of the world. Equipment hire and tuition is easy to organise, with both the North and South Coasts offering all levels of water sports from beginners to competitive professionals. Horse riding can be enjoyed along quiet country lanes, on the beach or moorland. Adventurous Training, clay pigeon shooting, archery and falconry are also available in Cornwall.
