You can’t beat a good seaside break, and where better to enjoy one than the sunny county of Cornwall? Home to a great number of coastal towns and villages (and not to mention over 300 beaches), you’ll have everything you need for a relaxed weekend away by the sea. Cornwall isn’t just loved for its coastal regions, though – the Cornish countryside is home to acres of rolling fields and valleys.
If a chilled out break in Cornwall sounds like a good plan, then we’ve got a huge selection of cosy cottages awaiting your arrival. Whether you’re stopping by the North Coast or heading as far down south as you can, you’ll get to enjoy the county’s sub-tropical microclimate.
