40 Stunning Images of Cornwall in 1895

Unspoiled beaches, enchanting seaside villages, and idyllic countryside make Cornwall a special place to live and visit.

Home of the TV sitcom “Doc Martin”, set in Port Isaac, Cornwall’s wild and rugged beauty, down to earth people, and mild climate make it the perennial favorite getaway for Britons.

An awful lot of people have childhood memories of holidays in Cornwall, and the holidays are old-fashioned and hugely successful. You stick a child and a dog on one of the beaches, and they just light up; they just love it.
—Martin Clunes (Doc Martin)
