The River Tamar divides Cornwall from the rest of England for all but three miles between the source and the north Cornish coast. 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).
Are you one of those people that has been coming to Cornwall for years and keeps going to the same beaches, the same pretty fishing villages, stick to the same roads?
There's nothing wrong with that, we don't mind where you go as long as you keep coming back!
But here's our short guide to a few charming bits of Cornwall that you might just of missed. They're not the out of the way 'hidden' places, we want to keep them to ourselves. These are just a few places that might not be on your usual tourist route.
These days it’s not difficult to catch a glimpse of Cornwall on the small screen, what with Poldark, Doc Martin, and Delicious on the main channels and repeats of Wycliffe usually on some more obscure channel. All these programs act as great adverts for the county, showing its scenery off behind the drama being played out in the foreground.
