The possibilities for an exciting and relaxing holiday in England's most beautiful corner are virtually endless.
Holiday in South West England
Location and orientation
South West England is one of the nine official regions of England in the south-western tip of the island. The region includes the popular seaside resorts of Bath and Somerset, Bristol and Plymouth and of course Cornwall, which is a small special case due to its Celtic character - and which you should not miss.
Legend has it that the legendary King Arthur was born at Tintagel Castle in Cornwall County.
Top 3 travel tips
It is probably the most mysterious stone circle in England - if not all of Great Britain: Stonehenge. The trench with several stone circles is still a mystery to researchers today. Is it a religious temple, a burial ground or even an astronomical observatory? In any case, it is incredibly worth seeing - especially if you come early enough to avoid the crowds of visitors at 11 am.2. A bike tour on the Camel Trail
There are of course many hiking and cycling routes in the southwest of England, but the Camel Trail is particularly pretty. It takes you from your holiday apartment or cottage in North Cornwall to Wadebridge or Padstow, past rugged rocky outcrops and through evergreen raised bogs.3. The county of Cornwall
Cornwall stretches across England's most southwestern peninsula, where you will find both the southernmost and westernmost points of the country. With its rugged cliffs, hidden white beaches and romantic villages, ideal for a holiday in a cottage-style holiday home! Visit the artist colony of St. Ives or enjoy the best fish and chips in the cosy fishing village of Mousehole. And then, of course, there are all the wild legends surrounding Cornwall - but you'll have to follow their footsteps yourself...
