Otherwise called Kernewek, Cornish a Celtic language related to Welsh and Breton . For me , the very least is that Cornwall deserves is more recognition of its unique heritage; and possibly devolution like Scotland and Wales. The idea of Cornish independence has been a topic of debate for many years, with a significant number of Cornish people believing that the Duchy (it’s one of the only two in the UK) should be independent.
Enjoy attractions like the Tresco Abbey Gardens, castles steeped in history and boat trips to see seals, Cornwall’s cutest animal. Ok, so they aren’t technically tropical, but look at photos of the Isles of Scilly and you’ll feel like you’re looking at images of the Caribbean. In fact, one of my recommendations, if you want to save money in Cornwall, is that you stay a little inland and make day trips to the beach. This language was widely spoken throughout Medieval times, but as Cornwall became gradually assimilated into English culture the language was less and less spoken. Nowadays, all the tin mines in Cornwall are closed – but you can experience the region’s rich history can still be seen in the many abandoned mines and mining museums that dot the landscape. It’s linked to the patron saint of Cornwall, St Piran, who is also the patron saint of tin miners.
If you only have three days in Cornwall, I recommend sticking to the north coast which is the most beautiful part of the county. For foodies, Bude is a great option with its own vegan restaurant, some great bakeries, and lots of seafood options. The town beach is great for swimming and surfing – so long as you’re careful of rip tides. The harbor village of Port Isaac is one of the top places to visit in Cornwall and has been made famous by the hugely popular ITV television series Doc Martin (you can even join a Doc Martin tour!).
The most famous of these dishes is Stargazy pie where the head of a fish sticks through a pie-crust as if it were “star-gazing”. If you are bringing a coach to Cornwall, did you know Cornwall Council now offers a weekly coach rover ticket. This is available for all car parks where coaches are permitted and costs £15 for 24 hours or £50 for 7 days and £35 for 4 days. These can be obtained by creating an account to use the ZatPermit system.
The region boasts some of the most stunning beaches in the UK, as well as dramatic cliffs, hidden coves, and picturesque harbours. Cornwall’s geography is unique, with a rugged coastline, rolling hills, and moorland landscapes. This fact always starts a few brawls, especially as I live in Devon… but both counties serve cream teas with jam, clotted cream and scones.
