Cornwall is the only destination in Britain to be included in the Lonely Planet's prestigious Blue List of 30 'must-see' places for 2007

[ Wednesday, 9th May 2007 ]

Chosen for its "spectacluar coastline", "arresting beauty" and "cultural and historical riches". Cornwall also came out on top as Britain's favourite UK holiday destination at the annual British Travel Awards at the end of 2006.
Spring comes earlier and lasts longer in Cornwall; and it’s always in glorious technicolour! Cornwall is home to great diversity of different daffodils and The Eden Project is the only place to be this spring when Bulb Mania promises to set the county alight. Cornwall is rightly famous for its celebrated woodland gardens – and of course the exotic Biomes of Eden. This is now Eden’s fourth spring festival and it just gets better and better with over a million bulbs being added in successive waves of colour. Come in March for the daffodils, April for the tulips and May for the lilies.


olive, the BBC’s magazine for restaurants, recipes and travel, has named Fifteen Cornwall their Restaurant of the Year in the January edition which has hit news stands across the country this week. The amazing accolade follows a review in the magazine’s pro vs. punter column, when Gregg Wallace, presenter of BBC 2’s Master Chef Goes Large and BBC Radio 4’s Market Forces, and olive reader, Allan Ford, both dined at Fifteen Cornwall and gave the restaurant on the beach at Watergate Bay a combined score of 53 out of 60 – the highest score of all of the restaurants reviewed in 2006.
