Short Breaks are the new Summer Holidays

A ploughman's in a pub with a sea view; a hot toddy on a moorland hilltop; an ice cream in a deckchair on the beach - they're closer than you think. Just a couple of hours' drive from London and you could be on holiday. 

Forget airport security or the stomach-churning bobbing of a boat. Head to the West Country and you'll be on holiday before you know it.

Check-in day doesn't have to be a travelling write-off. Make the most of it by leaving early and heading off-route for a lovely pub lunch on the way. Follow up with a few days of West Country wandering. Tick off one or two 'must-dos', but don't cram them all into one week a year. Spread them out over a few weekends. After all, short breaks are the new summer holidays! 

So, pick a part and enjoy discovering your favourite spot. We've short breaks available across CornwallDevonSomerset and Dorset
