Welcome to the far west of Cornwall

The far west is a land of beauty. Rugged cliffs, big skies, hidden coves with tales of smugglers, fishing villages, history, mysterious moorland and ancient monuments. It's a place to kick back, relax and contemplate, where you'll be inspired by your surroundings. Or come for adventure, the exhilaration of the sea, to surf, swim, kayak, perhaps climb some of the challenging cliffs, walk or cycle through our stunning scenery.

Whatever your idea of a great holiday, we're confident that the far west of Cornwall is your ideal destination. At The Cornish Way we offer you superb self-catering accommodation for romantic breaks and family holidays, coupled with an intimate knowledge that only a local specialist can provide.
