Why Hire a Camper Van for the Trip?
Many visitors to Cornwall stay in the hotels, B&Bs, and other accommodation options dotted around the county. While this is a fine choice, it can make exploring the entire county a little difficult, as your home base is set in one location. You can stay in various hotels and accommodation, but this can get expensive.
The much better option that truly allows you to enjoy the entirety of Cornwall is to hire a camper van or motorhome, as these are essentially hotels on wheels. They provide you with the necessities for your trip, such as a place to eat, wash, and sleep, but you aren’t restricted to one location.
You can drive your motorhome or camper van across Cornwall, visiting any place you wish to. Stay for one night or more, explore the area, and then move on to the next spot on your travel wish list, all in comfort. This way, you can easily explore the entire county of Cornwall if you wish to.
