The Hidden Places of Cornwall

The Hidden Places of Cornwall

Published by Travel Publishing
This is the 10th edition of the Hidden Places of Cornwall but it is also the first Hidden Places
title to be published simultaneously in printed form and as an e-book which reflects the
significant growth in the demand for travel information in digital form.
The free-to-download digital edition is reproduced in full colour and reflects many of the changes
made to the printed version with an attractive new cover and redesigned page layouts. The
changes will significantly improve the usefulness, accessibility and appeal of the guide.
Editorially, the new style continues Travel Publishing’s commitment to exploring the more
interesting, unusual or unique places of interest in Cornwall. In this respect we would like to
thank the Tourist Information Centres who helped us update the editorial content of the book.
As an e-book of course readers are able to quickly browse the guide on a page-by-page basis,
search for, and locate places of interest using the index and find out more information on our
advertisers by clicking on their website or email address. In addition, any part of the guide can be
printed off for readers who want information on specific places.
Cornwall has been described as “an isolated beauty that contains some of the most dramatic and
spectacular scenery in the country”. It is surrounded by rugged coastlines and has often been
referred to as the ‘English Riviera’ encompassing pretty fishing ports, secluded scenic villages,
narrow winding lanes and strong, romantic seafaring traditions. This is a land of strong Celtic
heritage and ancestry, a place that is dotted with monuments such as crosses, holy wells and
prehistoric sites and where legends of old still hold their romance amongst the Cornish people.
The Hidden Places of Cornwall contains a wealth of information on the history, culture and the
hundreds of interesting places to be found within the county. But it also promotes the more
secluded and little known visitor attractions and advertises places to stay, eat and drink, many of
which are easy to miss unless you know exactly where you are going. These are cross-referenced
to more detailed information contained in a separate, easy-to-use section to the rear of the book.
This section is also available as a free supplement from the local Tourist Information Offices.
We include hotels, bed & breakfasts, restaurants, pubs, bars, teashops and cafes as well as
historic houses, museums, gardens and many other attractions throughout the area - all of which
are comprehensively indexed. Many places are accompanied by an attractive photograph and are
easily located by using the map at the beginning of each chapter. We do not award merit marks or
rankings but concentrate on describing the more interesting, unusual or unique features of each
place with the aim of making the reader’s stay in the local area an enjoyable and stimulating
experience.
Whether you are travelling around Cornwall on business or for pleasure we do hope that you enjoy
reading and using this book. We are always interested in what readers think of places covered (or
not covered) in our guides so please do not hesitate to give us your considered comments. We also
welcome any general comments which will help us improve the guides themselves. Finally if you
are planning to visit any other corner of the British Isles we would like to refer you to the list of
other Hidden Places titles to be found to the rear of the book and to the Travel Publishing
website (see below).
