Used this book for an intensive trip around Cornwall, so we covered a lot of ground. There are some strange problems with this book, like a couple towns have writeups or information, yet don't appear in the index which is annoying when you're deciding whether to jump off the train or not. The are almost no maps of anywhere in Cornwall (though maybe the other counties are okay?). But the advice is sincere and personal and gives little tidbits about the place. Definitely recommended.

Great guide. Designed to help you find the things you want to find, without colour photos... although it would be nice to actually see where you going :/

I purchased this book as I was planning a driving holiday covering Bath, Bournemouth, Paignton and various parts of Cornwall. I have bought a couple of other lonely planet guides which have been helpful - sadly this one is fairly useless. The main problems with it are a lack of any half decent maps, no pictures, lack of detail about places of interest and in some cases no mention of them at all. For example I know the Bournemouth area fairly well; the lovely gardens at Compton Acres are not mentioned in the book and worse still the best Tank Museum in the country (at Bovington)is only mentioned in passing in a section about a walk to Clouds Hill. Obviously Tank Museums are not for everyone but if this has been omitted who is to guess what else hasn't even been mentioned. On the plus side the book talks a lot about food and where to eat so if you want a holiday where all you do it eat and have little interest in anything else this is the book for you! If you have more varied interests I would invest in a different book!

We have just got back from a two week holiday exploring devon, Cornwell and the isles of scilly. It gave info on everything we could ever have wanted to do from booking accommodation, travel to the isles, snorkalling trips and even restaurant recommendations. We wouldn't have seen half as much without it. A very useful guide. Lacking a bit on maps but I wrote things on our road atlas of interest.

I bought this book as I had not done cornwall ever. It was perfect. It had everything in it that I needed to know and saw some wonderful sites with easy to get to directions. Highly recommend this book to get the most out of Cornwall.
