Nothing is very far away from anything else in Cornwall. From Corisande Manor, in Newquay, West Cornwall, most places can be reached in under 45 minutes, but you can of course take longer if you follow the scenic route. Anyway, on a Cornish holiday, time should not be of the essence.
Equally well, nothing is far from the sea in Cornwall. Bounded by sea on nearly all sides, you are never far from a sandy beach or a rocky cove when you visit Cornwall.
I have put together three drives to show you Cornwall at its best, taking about a day each, to give you the full flavour of Cornwall. Of course to see the county properly you have to spend much longer here.
|Drive 1 West Cornwall - Lands End and St Michael's Mount|
|Drive 2 Cornwall's South Coast|
|Drive 3 Cornwall's North Coast|
