288 pages, 16 with colour photos & 12 maps.As much an entertaining armchair read as a practical guide, this is a personal, slow, tour of Cornwall. Experience crashing waves and glorious beaches, wild moorland and wooded valleys, and the quiet and hitherto unsung byways of the Cornish landscape. Take time to savour the outstanding cuisine and seek out the lively arts scene. Interviews with locals - from blacksmiths and bakers to artists and fishermen - paint an intimate picture of the people of the region. Kirsty Fergusson enriches your stay with her local knowledge on where to stay, eat and drink and what to see and do. Tips on where to paddle with the tide up wooded creeks to village pubs, on where to discover lost varieties of Cornish apples and on riding a bike from standing stones to swimming holes, provide an intimate picture of this popular tourist destination.
