Booking a short stay in a self-catering holiday cottage in one of Britain’s lovely countryside or seaside counties can be a fantastic way to get away from the everyday hustle and bustle and snatch a little time to relax. Most self-catering cottages are available all year round with discounts for off-season rates, so whether you want somewhere to sunbathe in the summer, cosy up in the winter or explore during spring or autumn, most UK holiday cottage providers will have something to offer you.
As one of the UK’s best-loved holiday destinations, Cornwall has some of the loveliest holiday cottages in the country and there are absolutely heaps to choose from. Offering the best possible balance of gorgeous countryside and pristine sandy beaches, self-catering holidays in Cornwall give you the chance to explore the region and enjoy some time to yourself, whether you decide to visit for a couple of days, a few weeks or even longer!
Cornwall cottages offer a range of different amenities and price ranges depending on what your budget is and what sort of short break you’re looking for. If you just want a quick weekend away to relax somewhere quiet then a nicely furnished one bedroomed cottage isn’t likely to set you back much at all – in fact a weekend’s booking can even be cheaper than a night on the town in places like London! Looking for something a bit more luxurious? Up your budget and you can find something with all the amenities you could want from a five star hotel, but with none of the associated hassles.
Best of all, Cornwall tends to enjoy a mild climate thanks to the Gulf Stream so usually experiences milder winters and less sweltering summers than the rest of the UK – perfect if you don’t want to freeze (or roast) during your short break! Wildlife enthusiasts will find this especially beneficial as the gentle weather tends to produce very colourful and varied gardens and wild flowers throughout the region, and if you get lucky you can see everything from birds and bees to dolphins and seals along the coastline.
Rather than going through a big travel agency you can often find the best deals by searching locally – try looking for self-catering Cornwall holidays from locals like Looe and Polperro Holidays instead of just heading down to your local Thompson’s or Thomas Cook.
