Cornwall is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the UK, with millions flocking to the south-western tip of Britain to sample its beautiful beaches and refreshing summer breezes. The reputation of the county has been further boosted after it was voted one of the happiest places to live in the country.

It comes from David Cameron’s first annual happiness index, conducting a questionnaire in multiple areas of the country to distinguish a ‘life satisfaction’ record for that region. Cornwall did exceptionally well, scoring 7.72 out of 10, with 80% of the 973 people interviewed saying they were completely content with their lives.

Completely surrounded by sea and laden with quaint rural villages, it comes as little wonder why so many people have happy holidays in the county year after year. Why not book into one of the luxurious holiday cottages in Cornwall this summer and discover the region for yourself.
