Mostly As
The family man or woman:

For you, your loved ones are everything and spending quality time with them is what your holiday is all about. From the moment you start planning your annual get away it’s all about making sure everyone is involved.

Fun games to play in the car might include Name that Tune or I Spy – get more ideas from The Baby Centre and family-proof games to play together while you’re away might include charades, Dingbats or Pictionary.

Cornwall’s beaches offer miles of space to play and explore, whether you want to relive your childhood by building sandcastles and paddling in the sea, or create memories together having fun at one of Cornwall’s many theme parks and family adventure centres.

Mostly Bs
The foodie:

Quality over quantity is top of your agenda – you love spending time preparing, cooking and perfecting your meals using only the very best local ingredients.

Cornwall is a foodie’s paradise, with the home of Rick Stein’s world-renowned fish restaurant on the north coast and Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall just minutes down the road. There is plenty of award-winning fresh produce to enjoy in the county from Rodda’s Cornish clotted cream and Cornish Orchards Cider to Davidstow Cheddar.

Mostly Cs
The gardener:

Green fingers are your trademark look, with a trowel and a garden fork never far from your hand. You love to explore the countryside, taking samples from open gardens (where permitted!) and sharing your passion with anyone who will listen, including family and friends.

Cornwall is home to some of the UK’s finest gardens, including Lanhydrock, Cotehele, Trebah and, of course, the internationally renowned Eden Project.

Mostly Ds
The action man or woman:

There is no cliff too high, no sport too tough, no activity too extreme for you and your adrenaline. Holidays are all about once in a lifetime experiences, trying new things and pushing boundaries, sharing them with anyone brave enough to join you.

Cornwall’s many watersport centres are a tempting attraction, from coasteering and surfing to kiteboarding and wave-skiing, not forgetting the zip wires, abseiling, canoeing and sailing.

Mostly Es
The art lover:

You have a real eye for good quality art, whether it’s hand-drawn, painted, sculptured or crafted. Touring local art galleries is at the top of your wish-list for any holiday, and Cornwall is no exception.

The unique quality of the light in St Ives has drawn thousands of artists, poets and writers to the far South West of Cornwall, including Turner in 1811, the famous artist Whistler, writer DH Lawrence and potter Bernard Leach.

With the impressive Tate St Ives, Penlee House and Gallery in Penzance and Newlyn Art Gallery all based within the county, you will struggle to find a more inspirational destination than Cornwall for your art-inspired break in 2015.
