Where should I stay in Cornwall for the first time?

There are obviously so many good places to visit and stay in Cornwall. Hence why we are have visited the region already 4 times in the past 10 years. But if there is one place we keep coming back is Fowey. This little port town of the Southern Coast of Cornwall is charming and has one of the best family friendly hotels in the UK called simply the Fowey Hall Hotel.

What’s nicer North or South Cornwall?

I am going to give you a diplomatic answer. Both. I love the South because of these long sandy beaches and dramatic landscapes you can admire at the Lizard or Land’s End. The North has beautiful fishing ports such as Padstow or Port Isaac and the famous village of Tintagel famously known for its castle and the King Arthur legendary tale.

What are the best places to stay in Cornwall for beaches?

You can’t go wrong by picking hotels around Porthcurno Beach or Newquay or Carbis Bay. They have long beaches to practise your favourite sport or just swim with your children in beautiful emerald waters.
