Devon & Cornwall Lonely Planet

Lonely Planet writer Oliver Berry describes why he loves Devon & Cornwall. "Cornwall is my home country, so it's the place I know better then anywhere. I've travelled all over the globe as a travel writer, but there's something special about the world out west, and I always find myself drawn back. I reckon I've visited pretty much every beach there is over the years, but there's always something new to see: the light, the weather and the changing seasons all bring out a different side to the landscape. for me, the Lizard and the Penwith coastline are very bit as spectacular as any of the more exotic places I've visited."
