CORNWALL VOTED UK’S FAVOURITE HOLIDAY DESTINATION!
28 January 2014
If you love visiting self-catering cottages Cornwall then you can now be proud to announce that you take your holidays in the country’s favourite holiday destination, as voted for in a BBC poll.
It is not the first time that Cornwall has been graced with this prestigious award. It is, in fact, the second year running that the region has featured in the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards, beating off opposition from the popular destinations such as the Lake District and the Highlands.
A spokesperson for the magazine said: “Our most southerly county very clearly proved most popular again, beating the Lake District and the Highlands comfortably.
The magazine attributed the win to “the blend of rugged coast, sandy beaches and charming towns and villages – and the half-decent weather.”
The BBC Countryfile Magazine requested that experts in each field to draw up shortlists of candidates in each category.
The awards then went to the vote as readers of the magazine and members of the public voted via post, email as well as on the BBC Countryfile Magazine’s own website.
