Short Breaks in Cornwall

As the most iconic county in England, boasting a heady mix of dramatic coastline, sheltered bays and beautiful green countryside, Cornwall is the ideal destination for short breaks.
Whether you fancy a romantic holiday getaway, a secluded retreat or a group weekend celebration, you’ll be able to relax and unwind amidst delightful rural surroundings.

Weekend or mid week short breaks, with or without children, can be spent in comfort and style at our farm-based self-catering holiday cottages and B&Bs. You’re guaranteed a warm welcome throughout the year, but we believe the best time for short breaks in Cornwall is from Autumn to Spring – when you can savour all that the county has to offer without battling the crowds or the traffic! In addition, out-of-season prices are significantly lower than during school holidays, meaning you can recharge your batteries for less.
