The Delights of Cornwall
Enjoy the unmistakeable delights of the South West, from ice cream to cream teas, from a pasty to fresh fish and seafood. It’s a foodies paradise, not to mention the vineyards and breweries.
Something for Everyone!
Relaxing, walking, surfing, swimming, pottering, shopping, eating and drinking. Cornwall has it all for families, couples, explorers and even your dog, Cornwall welcomes dogs almost everywhere, and it’s all just minutes away from Pebble Cottage!
Leave the car behind and wander the cliffs and beaches of the cornish coast. Take a leisurely stroll along the cliffside from Rock to Daymer Bay to Polzeath Beach, taking in the views. Reward yourself with a delicious clotted cream ice cream.
