Cornwall located on the South West of England is famed for its beautiful coastline, cream teas and Cornish pasties. All of these elements combine to make a fabulous option for your UK staycation whether it’s in a hotel or in one of the many cottages and apartments that are great for a self catering option.
The journey down to Cornwall is normally made by driving but as you’ll discover as soon as you get off the motorways you’ll then be on small A roads which although offers you lovely views of the countryside can often be very busy during peak times. It is best to allow a good amount of time to drive down to Cornwall but there are other options if you travelling from around the UK.
Travelling by train is an option if you are looking to stay in some of the main towns and areas, such as St. Ives, Newwquay or Looe. However if you’re looking to venture out from these areas to explore then a car would definitely be my recommendation.
If you are planning on flying from within the UK to Cornwall the closest airports are Exeter and Newquay, but I would then recommend hiring a car locally to made it easier to travel around, again unless you are planning on staying solely in one of these areas.
Accommodation in Cornwall
There are many options to choose from whether you’re looking for a high end hotel to camping, it truly depends on your budget but I have listed some of my recommendations below:
The Scarlet in Mawgan Porth, near Newquay. The tagline on the hotels website is “A luxury eco hotel just for grown ups” and with it’s prime position overlooking the beach of Mawgan Porth it makes an excellent choice for an adult only break.
The Rosevine near Portscatho is a great mid budget option if you’re travelling with your family. It’s half country hotel, half apartment complex, meaning that here is plenty of choice if you’re looking for a hotel or a self catering option. Roseland’s beaches are within driving distance of the property but if you don’t want to travel too far for some watersports there is an indoor pool if the weather isn’t too great!
There are a lot of self catering options to choose from in Cornwall and they cover a wide range of budgets it will just depend on the time of year and location. Self catering allows you the freedom to indulge in some of the amazing seafood that this area is famous for whether you eat out or you decide to cook something yourself at your self catering cottage there are some fabulous options to choose from. The good thing about booking into a self catering cottage is there are also plenty of dog friendly options meaning your furry companion can come too!
