The South West is one of the UK’s most popular places to holiday, and with such beautiful Cornish coastlines and delightful Devon valleys, we’re not surprised that nearly half of last year’s visits to the region were to Devon and Cornwall alone.
It’s just as well the two counties are home to a great selection of accommodation providers to cater for the thousands of tourists who visit each year.
