This English county, which is located on the far south west tip of England, is ideal for a self-catering holiday, as it has a fantastic selection of properties to rent for the duration of your holiday.

Not surprisingly, Cornwall is rich in history and there are numerous towns and villages to explore during your vacation.

Truro is the only city in Cornwall and is a good place to start your holiday.

And if you want to find a spot to unwind, you can take a break in either one of the two parks in the city.

If you've got children in tow, then Cornwall has no shortage of attractions and activities to keep the kids happy. For example, you can take the youngsters to Cornwall's Crealy Great Adventure Park or DairyLand Farm World - or why not spend a day at Newquay Zoo? If the sun's shining, you will no doubt want to head straight to the beach with the children.

You will be spoilt for choice by the number of beaches in this county. In fact, Cornwall boasts 697km of coastline and has numerous beaches to choose from - whether you want to do spot of surfing or simply to sunbathe.
