Why it is important to use a Cornish Insurance Broker?

A Site about Insurance Brokers in Cornwall would be incomplete without a page dedicated to Cornwall.  

 

We live in one of the most beautiful places on the planet, but unfortunately it’s also one of the most expensive places in the UK to live. 

 

This is why it is important to use a Cornish Insurance Broker.  Cornish businesses need to help and support other Cornish businesses. It really helps the local community, keeping money within the county.

Why focus on Business Insurance when you are surrounded by Beauty?

While it is extremely important to organise your Cornish Business Insurance, you can sometimes get that involved and bogged down with Professional Indemnity, Public Liability, Employers Liability and Commercial Insurance Policies that you forget about the beauty that surrounds you every day. 

 

By using an Insurance Broker in Cornwall, you can relax knowing you are in good hands and free up your time to actually get out and enjoy Cornwall.

It provides an in depth look at the history of Cornwall from 400,000BC to the present day and is well worth a read.

Beaches

Cornwall is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It forms a peninsula that encompasses cliffs, beaches and moorland.

With over 400 Beaches, you can never get bored and even in the heat of summer you can find a quiet spot somewhere.

The South coast is dubbed the Cornish Riviera – here you can find the beautiful places of Falmouth and Fowey. Both steeped in fishing history.

Cornish Towns & Villages

Cornwall has a vast number of towns and villages and one City.  These range from Altarnum all the way through the alphabet to Zennor.

 

We also have Land’s End, approximately 8 miles west of Penzance, next tot he beautiful parish of Sennen. The tourist complex located there is one of the Cornwall’s most visited destinations. 

 

Please find below information on a number of these

Truro – Cornwall’s only City

Truro is Cornwall’s only City. It has an amazing Cathedral and is set in a beautiful location with some nice gardens and parks. It has a number of shops and café’s that caters for everyone’s needs.

 

It’s the centre of Cornwall for facilities including the hospital. Truro is steeped in history from its Georgian streets, cobbled lanes and leats running alongside the streets (we know them locally as kennels) – they were used to keep the horses watered and the streets clean.

 

Mevagissy

One of Cornwall’s traditional fishing towns, Mevagissy is a beautiful place to visit and attracts many tourists.  It has a working harbour and many narrow streets, a great aquarium and many craft shops and fish restaurants.

 

It used to be the centre of Cornwall’s pilchard fishery industry. Mevagissey’s name comes from the names two saints, St Meva and St Issey

 

St. Ives

Due to it’s unique light, St Ives has become a Mecca for artists and tourists alike.  A town once dependant on the fishing industry, St Ives has now become one of Cornwall’s major tourist destinations.

As well as hosting the Tate gallery, St. Ives has many beautiful cobbled streets, restaurants, shops, beautiful beaches and walks. Alongside the wharf you will find bars and cafes and if you head west along the shore you will find Smeaton’s Pier – a great vantage point to take in St Ives.

Padstow

One of Cornwall’s most well known fishing towns, Padstow is a small and beautiful place filled with gift shops and restaurants, including home to one of Rick Steins restaurants.  There are many boat trips on offer – one of which takes you across the river to the town of Rock.

 

It is also home to a treacherous sandbank, known as the Doom Bar, located at the mouth of the Camel Estuary.

Penzance

Originally an ancient Market town, Penzance is now a magnet for tourists due to its Cornish culture and beauty.  It has a big promenade, hundreds of shops and a good selection of restaurants, as well as being close to St. Michaels Mount.

If you are down that way in June, then we recommend checking out the Mazey Day celebrations and the Golowan festival.

Newquay

Home to the world famous Fistral Beach, Newquay is a vibrant town that caters for everyone.  A great place to grab a pasty, watch the seals in the harbour and surf.

 

It has numerous beaches, shops, restaurants and sporting activities such as surfing, diving, Jet Ski’s and boat trips as well as a vibrant night life making it popular for couples, families and party goers.  

St Austell

Just a couple of miles from the coast, the old market town of St. Austell is one of the largest towns in Cornwall.  It was once a very important mining town until the discovery of China Clay in the 18th Century when the extraction of clay soon became the town’s main industry. 

Home to the biggest brewery in Cornwall, the St Austell Brewery, and the world famous Eden Project has made St. Austell a visiting place for tourists.
