Art and craft holidays in Cornwall

Cornwall has long been a magnet for artists and holiday makers alike. We are blessed with the longest stretch of continuous coastline in Britain, quaint Cornish fishing villages, dramatic cliffs and coastline, plus who can forget the beautiful moorland and our rugged countryside.
