Cornwall is undeniably proving to be a favourite for staycations here in the UK.

Last year we looked at seven magical spots around Cornwall that are so unbelievably pretty.

But it’s just such a beautiful place we wanted to share even more.

: The pretty village 1 hour from London with one of the best hotels in the world

The south-west corner of England makes for the perfect escape from the capital.

So if your looking for your next getaway spot away from London, these seven beauties are the perfect destinations.



A tranquil scene at Looe Harbour looking towards East Looe.

This lovely seaside town is so stunning it could easily be mistaken for a European holiday spot.
Enjoy the amazing scenic views over Looe harbour or paddle and snorkel in the gorgeous turquoise waters. Walk along the coastal path to Polperro Heritage Coast, a place of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

And while your enjoying the magic of the town, be sure to dine on some incredible fresh fish and chips- that’s a real holiday.



Padstow Harbour at blue hour, Cornwall, with reflections of the boats and lights in and around the harbour.

On the north coast of Cornwall, this beautiful town boasts equally beautiful food. Home to the one and only Rick Stein, the celebrity chef owns four restaurants in Padstow alone.

The town is a working fishing town and all of the star’s restaurants reflect this. But it’s not just about the food, Padstow is surrounded by gloriously golden beaches.

At the head of the Camel river, you can explore peaceful coves and even learn to surf at the beach. Or, walk (or cycle!) along the Camel Trail to take in the immense landscapes.



Charlestown Harbour during the summer months in Cornwall

This magical little town has been the filming location for a number of films and TV shows, including Dr Who, Poldark and Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland.

Charlestown in the south-east of Cornwall is an obvious choice for scenery as its home to such pristine and idyllic surroundings.

Known as a model Georgian town when it was first constructed in the early 19th-century, the town still has its authentic, well-preserved harbour now. You can even spot two old-fashioned tall ships when you are wandering around the natural beauty.



The harbour at Portscatho on a summers day

This unbelievably beautiful village is found on the gorgeous Roseland peninsula.

Making Portscatho even more magical is its incredible little hidden beach restaurant. Right next to the National Trust’s Porthcurnick Beach is The Hidden Hut which serves fresh and delicious food- world leaders even ate there during the G7 summit.

The picturesque restaurant has been listed as one of Europe’s prettiest outdoor restaurants and the amazing scenery of Portscatho proves for stunning dinner views.

This gorgeous harbour village on the north coast boasts spectacular coastal views over its rugged cliffs.

Boscastle is a small spot that is relaxed and charming, perfect for wonderful walks. Studded with quaint little tourist shops, bespoke cafes and even a Museum of Witchcraft and Magic – making it quite literally magical.
