the simple life

With a laid back approach, connected to a more naturally authentic and sustainable way of life, Cornwall is the dream if you’re thinking about life away from the city.

It’s easy to see why Cornwall is so loved. This peninsula at the South West tip of the UK has some of the most beautiful scenery and rugged landscapes to be found.

All along its southern coast — dubbed the Cornish Riviera — picturesque harbour villages touch the waters edge, and the endearingly traditional way of life is a rare find in a fast paced world.

The North coast is more wild, with the UK’s best surfing hotspots set against dramatic cliffs, and golden sand beaches stretching out for miles.

Between the two coasts are windswept moors, home to a diverse ecosystem of wildlife and native plants. For centuries the land here has been celebrated for its rich mineral deposits, and the area around St Austell became the most important for china clay production in the world.
