Visitors interested in British history and artefacts will be simply mesmerised by Stonehenge, arguably the most impressive remaining prehistoric earthwork in Europe. Meanwhile Cornwalls Lands End is a favourite haunt for many first-time visitors to this corner of the island.
The spectacular cliffs of Dartmoor and the panoramic views across Bodmin Moor make for an ideal walking and hiking holiday.
Families and couples looking to relax by the sea can do just that with South-West England vacation rentals. Devon and Cornwall is home to Englands most golden sands, with Newquay, Croyde and Woolacombe much-vaunted surfing and watersports venues.
In terms of accommodation, holiday cottages and chalets are very popular and common in South-West England. Tourism drives much of the economic prosperity in the region and there are hundreds of properties each within walking distance to amenities and coastal attractions.
A number of the South-West England vacation rentals available are timeless relics of bygone eras, restored from over 400 years ago. There is accommodation dotted across the region, allowing you to choose vacation rentals within walking distance to the beach, or hidden away in the countryside away from it all.
For a holiday or vacation rental packed with wonderful memories of the English countryside, fantastic coastline, narrow, meandering roads and a rich and strongly held heritage, the South West of England is well worth a visit.
