It’s easy to see why Cornwall is one of the UK’s most popular holiday destinations. This historic county has over 300 miles of jaw-dropping coastline with rugged cliffs and golden beaches, quaint fishing villages and bustling ports, while inland it boasts ancient forests and dramatic moors.

Cornwall is also home to 12 National Landscapes as well as the world’s largest greenhouses and a UNESCO-listed landscape scattered with the remnants of the region’s Poldark-era tin and copper mines.

With so much on offer, it’s difficult to know where to start – and stay. With that in mind, we’ve curated a list of the very best views and asked the experts at Aspects Holidays to pair them with charming holiday cottages in Cornwall

Lowarth Mor, Marazion

St Michael’s Mount is a rocky tidal island in Mount’s Bay in Cornwall. The picturesque Mount is home to a medieval church and castle as well as a small community of 35 people. It is linked to the town of Marazion by a cobbled causeway which can be crossed between mid-tide and low water.

St Michael’s Mount was historically linked to Mont Saint-Michel in Normandy, France, when it was given to the Benedictine religious order of Mont Saint-Michel by Edward the Confessor in the 11th century. Both islands share the same characteristics, although the Cornish site is much smaller; 57 acres compared with 247 acres.

St Michael’s Mount is one of 43 unbridged tidal islands that you can walk to from mainland Britain. Needless to say, it’s one of the most iconic sights in Cornwall.
