Im reading all the general stuff...halls, st michaels mount, lizards point, tintagel castle.... nothing about the people or the feel / mood of the area. Is it a popular place or a quiet shire?

I've been there, but not for many years!

One of our members lives in Cornwall but she hasn't posted for ages! She runs holiday cottages down there. If you pm her she might be happy to have a chat. Her name's Sue and her username is boturnell (that's the name of the cottage complex).

She's a really nice, friendly lady!

From what I remember it's a beautiful place with friendly people and tons of history! But I was just a child when I went there on holiday so I can't say much.

Sue will, though - I believe she's quite into the history of Cornwall although I could be wrong!

Of course you weren't rude!  happy 

To most of us in the UK Cornwall is a holiday destination - gorgeous but not the easiest to get to.

Let us know what you want to know and we'll do our best to help you  hug
