The River Tamar divides Cornwall from the rest of England for all but three miles in the far north. It runs for 60 miles down to Plymouth Sound, winding its way through rich farmland and areas of industrial history, now with World Heritage Status. Much of the area is also part of the Tamar Valley AONB (Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
As a county, Cornwall has done very well in this year Visit England Rose Awards with nine accommodation providers gaining the highly prized award.
Designed to showcase those establishments that provide the warmest of welcomes, only 100 recipients across England are chosen every year. These are places where the owners, managers and staff really know how to delight their customers, irrespective of their star rating, style or type of accommodation
