Cornwall is again in the running to regain its title as the Best UK Holiday Destination at the prestigious British Travel Awards 2019.
Having won the award for nine years in a row, we were narrowly beaten by Northumbria in 2018, so we need you to vote this year to put us back where we think we belong!
We would love for you all to get behind us and vote for Cornwall and use the hashtags #votecornwall #bta19 #ilovecornwall #ukdestination.
'Cornwall feeds something in the soul, don’t you find?’
So wrote Sunday Times bestselling author Fern Britton in one of her earlier novels set in and around the fictional Cornish coastal town of Trevay.
This summer sees the release of her latest novel The Newcomer, set in Trevay’s neighbouring village Pendruggan. It’s springtime in the village and as the community comes together to say a fond farewell to the parish vicar, a newcomer causes quite a stir…
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.
The sea has been part of our lives for thousands of years. For many here in Cornwall it was our main source of transportation and communication until the railway arrived in the 1850s. It provides our food and our livelihoods. In recent years it has become a place of recreation, and also a source of renewable energy.
