Weekend breaks in Cornwall are the ideal getaway – beautiful landscapes, delicious local food and a huge variety of things to do coupled with an abundance of quality accommodation to suit every budget.

Because of its slower pace of life and spectacular scenery, the South West remains one of the top three domestic destinations for quick getaways, with weekend breaks in Cornwall proving especially popular. Even if it’s outside your reach for a comfortable journey by car, access via train and plane has never been easier. The increasingly busy airport at Newquay now boasts a daily Flybe service to and from Manchester and Gatwick while a rail journey to St. Austell  from a major hub like Reading takes about 3 ½ hours.

Just think – one minute you could be struggling with your daily commute and the next you could be soaking up the sights and sounds of the world famous Cornish coastline that inspired Winston Graham’s Poldark novels and Daphne du Maurier’s enduring classics, Rebecca and Jamaica Inn. You could even have your photograph taken outside Doc Martin’s fictional surgery in Port Isaac, the quaint fishing port that doubles for Port Wenn in the hugely successful TV series. Even a couple of days spent in a totally different, relaxing environment can help to achieve enhanced work life balance.

Since the county is long and narrow in shape, it doesn’t take long to hop from coast to coast so that weekend breaks in Cornwall offer the opportunity to take in both the wide sandy beaches of the Atlantic facing North coast and the yachting and fishing harbours on the calmer South coast. You will even have time to cover a section of the 600 mile long South West Coast Path.

Cornwall is now renowned for the quality of its food offering which has come on in leaps and bounds from just traditional specialities like cream teas and pasties. Local chefs like Rick Stein and Nathan Outlaw have set a high bar to which newcomers continue to aspire, which means that you can enjoy a taste of sophistication in a breathtaking setting.
