I have never discovered a coastline pretty enough to distract all 7 leaders of the G7 long enough for them to agree on something, but if I had to (for the memes), my first thoughts would be to send them to Cornwall.

Oh wait…

Anyway, Cornwall is a magical place, where coastlines make geographers go ‘agh’ and almost everyone has won an award for their award winning pasties. There is excellent surfing, a nice range of ice creams, and great camping.

But where in blazes are you to store your dinner jackets amidst these bloody hedgerows?!?

An excellent question, and one that will be shortly defeated in my RAVISHINGLY SMOOTH guide to where to stay in Cornwall. Full of the sauciest coastlines, gnarliest waters and most tempting chippies in all of the land…

Please don’t rain.

Located in the midst of the rolling fields of Zennor village, it’s only a short hop from St Ives, and has brilliant access to the rugged north Cornish coastline.

Talland Bay Hotel | Best Hotel in Cornwall

Talland Bay Hotel

Centred in 2 acres of well-kept gardens, this hotel offers a coastal location that is possibly unbeatable. Each room is individually designed, which may be one of the reasons this hotel keeps winning awards. It feels fairytale-esque, with bright spaces, a refreshing amount of green, and quick access to the beautiful local coastal paths. As my pick for the top hotel in Cornwall, it is suitably charming, artistic, and could probably placate a Saudi Prince.

The Terrace Restaurant serves rosette-winning cuisine, and offers vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options. With everything going for it, even the best holiday rentals in the UK look meagre and downcast in comparison…

Looking for something sexier and more romantic? There are plenty of good accommodation options around the county, but why not consider booking into one of the best lodges in Cornwall instead?

FAQs on the Best Places to Stay in Cornwall

Here’s what people usually ask us about the areas of Cornwall and where to stay.

What To Pack For Cornwall

Pants, socks, underwear, soap?! Take it from me, packing for a hostel stay is not always quite as straightforward as it seems. Working out what to bring and what to leave at home is an art I have perfected over many years.

Final Thoughts on Choosing a Place to Stay in Cornwall

Cornwall is one of the most beautiful places in the UK. It has stunning sandy beaches, scenic views, areas of outstanding natural beauty, world-class surfing and plenty of shopping, dining and nightlife options. A relaxing holiday destination, there’s something for everyone in Cornwall, UK.

Just remember that many of these popular towns suffer through most of the year and rely heavily on summer tourism to bring them healthy sustenance. They’re populated with second homes, which can make them seem unbelievably quiet at certain times of the year.

Just like anywhere in the world, it has its problems, so please be kind to the Cornish Coast!
