Requests for Places to Stay

Looking for Accommodation ? Cornishlight itself has a growing number of nice Places to Stay, from Cottages, Camping, to Hotels, to B and B. to Last Minute and late availability. Thank you.

Requests for Cornwall Tourist Brochures

"Can you send me a Tourist Information brochure and details of TIC's addresses and phone numbers? Many of the Cornwall Tourism Organisations produce informative and eye-catching brochures.

"Can you send me a brochure about Cornishlight?" We do not have a "Brochure" as such about Cornishlight. Hopefully the Site speaks for itself. It is designed to be printer friendly and looks even better when printed in colour rather than black and white, so feel free to print them out for your non commercial use. Have a look at our wide choice of Accommodation ? We do have high quality colour copies of all our pages, and some eye-catching colour promotional literature about us we'd be happy to send you by snail mail.

Advertising on Cornishlight

Interested in a site of your own, or a page on Cornishlight? Launched in 1998, Cornishlight has become very popular. For two years we were the only Cornwall Travel and Tourist Guide with a 3 star rating from Infoseek. In fact there were only 8 other UK sites with such a high rating. We are an Editor's pick in many of the Web Directories. An Open Directory Coolsite. Lycos 'Highly Commended'. In 1999 we had over two million hits. In May 2000 we reached the Yell Awards 2000 Shortlist. Daily in August 2006 we had on average over 120,000 hits. For the benefit of the ignorant that high figure is in part due to the large number of images on the site. Hits and visitors must not be confused - they are not the same thing. Every day we get emails from people saying nice things about the site, here are some of the more recent examples.

We have over 170 pages of information, that is excluding advertisements, and thousands of nice (and unique) photographs. Our photo archive is one of the most extensive in the County. Many of our visitors come looking for places to stay, things to do. Our Accommodation Section is one of the most visited on the site. People like all the text and images on the pages, the way the site is laid out, and its ease of navigation. We have been selected to distribute many of the Official Tourist Guides thro' online brochure request forms.

Suggest an update

All our sites are in a constant state of flux. For example every year we take hundreds of new images, there is always a delay of at least several months in uploading them. If you feel something is missing it may be something we are working on- such as the section on the Coast Path on Cornwall by Cornishlight. It may be we have not got around to it yet, or just not occurred to us you would find it interesting. Though we have gone to a lot of effort to ensure the accuracy and currency of all our sites, we are only human, so sometimes miss the point, information becomes out of date, things change, or we have just plain got it wrong. If you feel an update would be useful we would love to hear from you. We rely on your comments, feedback and suggestions to improve, and look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

There is demand for nice accommodation. We sometimes release 30 day Trial Offers. What are you waiting for? Contact us for details of current offers. Check out our Price List | Terms and Conditions. Though we are not the cheapest we believe our rates offer value for money. Sadly there is no such thing as a free lunch so please don't expect to have a paid listing for free. Want a web-site of your own?. Why not have a look at our web-site design section? Cornishlight is listed in Yahoo.
