Cornwall isn’t short of sandy beaches, spectacular views and scenic walks, but that isn’t the only relaxation the county has to offer; there’s a wide range of wonderful spas that help people unwind and discover their inner calm.
We wanted to discover the best spas the Duchy has to offer, so we took to social media and asked our followers which spas they loved the most.
