Where to stay in Cornwall?
Cornwall is a popular destination for tourists, with its many regions and towns offering a variety of experiences. There's something for everyone, whether you want to stay in the city or countryside; book into an Airbnb apartment or cottage; try one of the many B&Bs available and immerse yourself in Cornish culture while enjoying delicious local cuisine.
Cornwall has been welcoming visitors since ancient times--the Romans built their own settlements here--and today there are plenty of places where you can stay if you're looking for something different from traditional hotel accommodation.
Discover the area with a local
If you're looking to get away from the crowds and explore the real Cornwall, then Airbnb is a great option. You'll find hosts who know their local area inside out - whether they're guides or event organizers, chefs or brewers - and they'll be able to share their passion with you as well as give recommendations on things to do.
Eat like a local
Cornwall is known for its seafood, so it's worth trying some local dishes. A traditional Cornish dish is the pasty, which has been baked in a pastry case with beef or vegetables inside. You can find them at most bakeries and supermarkets in Cornwall.
Another traditional Cornish dish is cream tea: scones served with jam and clotted cream on top!
