Cornwall

Highly recommended
Remoteness and wildness are the charms of the Cornish peninsula, which lies at the southwestern tip of England. Inland from the irregular coastline are its fishing villages, former haunts of smugglers, lush gardens contrasting with the desolate lands thrashed by the winds, sandy beaches nestled in the creeks, and the spectacular rocky headlands of this earth steeped in the myths and legends of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.
