Sheer Romance in the Enchanting South of England
Anyone who likes it sunny and pleasantly warm during the summer should visit England's most popular vacation region, Cornwall. The year-round mild temperatures in southern England make this region a true paradise. The dreamy landscapes, the numerous fishing villages, and the old manor houses from the English writer Rosamunde Pilcher's romance novels are even more charming on location than in the films.
The landscapes with their rugged cliffs, strands, and idyllic bays make Cornwall an impressive destination for seaside vacations. Here, you will find the most stunning beaches in all of England and particularly Newquay stands out with seashores like Fistral Beach. Furthermore, passionate water sport enthusiasts get to enjoy sailing, kayaking, or surfing on the kilometre-long shore. However, let us not forget those who like to stay dry. Good alternatives to the water-based activities are a round of golf in the middle of the marvellous nature and a hike on along the coast on one of the various trails.
