Cornwall has been a favourite holiday destination for British holidaymakers for years and it is easy to see why. Visit the busy fishing port of Mevagissey and sample some of the finest and freshest seafood around, or take coastal walks that, during the colder months, provide you with views of nature at its most fierce as the waves crash onto the beach and cliff faces. Taking your motorhome down south offers some fresh air and peace from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
