Why consider a weekend break in Cornwall?

We might be biased, but we think that Cornwall is one of the very best holiday destinations in the world. And, what’s even better, is that it’s in the UK so for those who want a quick getaway, it’s the perfect choice. If you are looking for a weekend break with a difference, discover how Cornwall can make a few days the ultimate holiday.

Easy to access from around the UK

For weekend breaks, Cornwall is a great choice as it’s easily accessible from around the UK. Whether by car, train or even plane, there are easy links to the county from all around the country. You won’t need to worry about a passport to get here either which is a bonus!

For those who want to drive, taking the M5 down to Exeter can get you there easily and then you have a range of routes to take depending on whether you are going to North Cornwall or South Cornwall. If you are looking to take the train, there are a range of services from major UK stations that travel as far down as Penzance in West Cornwall. Alternatively, why not fly to Newquay Airport?

Surrounded by an amazing coastline

One of the highlights of Cornwall is its coastline. Whether you enjoy surfing, want to try your hand at stand-up paddleboarding or just want to lay on the beach and hear the waves lap up against the coast, there is an almost unending coastline around our county.  We know that for many, being able to enjoy stunning beaches and the sea is the token of an amazing summer holiday, and, Cornwall has that to offer wherever it is you choose to stay.

A range of amazing attractions

Many think of Cornwall as quite isolated due to its location (and that’s one of its great draws!) but that doesn’t mean there still aren’t some great attractions here. From a selection of wonderful theme parks to museums and galleries and more, there is a lot to be done and you’ll struggle to fit even a fraction of it in over a weekend break in Cornwall. There are the popular attractions like St Michaels Mount and popular seaside towns like St Ives to enjoy, but there are also some amazing fishing villages and old fishing harbours that are ideal for a quiet and relaxed day out and some authentic exploration.

Home to amazing flora and fauna

The natural beauty of Cornwall doesn’t stop at its coastline (although that is stunning)! The flora and fauna you can see here are spectacular and are one of the things that give our county its unique feel. From being able to see dolphins and seals on the shoreline to the elusive beavers inland and even occasionally eagles that soar overhead, there are so many creatures to see. And the flora is amazing too. Even outside of attractions like the Eden Project and stunning gardens like those at the Lost Gardens of Heligan, for those who enjoy a hike or a walk, the beautiful flowers and plants will offer a great experience.

Great for those with dogs

We know that it doesn’t feel like a proper family holiday unless ALL the family can come, and for those with four-legged friends, you’ll be pleased to know that Cornwall is perfect for dogs. From dog-friendly pubs to beaches perfect for getting their paws wet, your pet won’t know what to do with themselves when enjoying a trip to Cornwall. Just pop them in the car with you and they’ll be able to take in every second of this family holiday.

Don’t have to take too much time out

We know that the modern world is busy, and we want to be able to rest and recuperate whilst not having to take too much time out of our day-to-day lives. Visiting Cornwall lets you do that. As it’s easy to access from the UK, you won’t need to worry about having to book off holiday to visit here, a weekend trip can still be filled with ample fun! Plus, once your trip is finished, you don’t need to worry about long trips and travel before getting back to real life – although we doubt you’ll want to!
