With spectacular scenery, gorgeous beaches and a host of tourist attractions, Cornwall has long been a popular seaside resort.
But if you want to visit this much-loved county you’ll have to pay the price, as Cornwall is amongst the most expensive seaside destinations in Britain.
Cheaprooms.co.uk compared the cost of seaside resorts across the UK, based upon the cheapest double room in accommodation rated three star or higher near a beach during July.
St Ives took first place in the list of most expensive resorts, with a one night stay averaging £123.
Falmouth and Padstow came joint sixth, averaging £84 per night, with Penzance sitting in eleventh place at £81 per night.
Malcolm Bell, head of Visit Cornwall, said: “Visitors are willing to pay a premium price for a quality product…why should this be any different for accommodation?”
“As an industry we should be proud of our quality product, not ashamed of its worth. Cornwall is well loved and has a loyal fan base.”
The recent heatwave has boosted the trend of staycations, with British holiday-makers flocking to the seaside to enjoy the domestic tourism industry.
Cornwall remains a firm family favourite and, despite topping the list of expensive seaside resorts, has accommodation to suit all budgets.
