Last minute short breaks

Pamper yourself for the weekend in a Cornish cottage with a private pool, or stomp along the Cornish Coast Path for a well-earned dose of sea air. For couples after a romantic weekend away, Cornwall has plenty to offer. Perhaps a bubbling hot tub will await your arrival, with a cottage only a stone’s throw from hidden coves and quiet beaches. 

Getting back to nature is often what we need when escaping day to day life, and Cornwall offers that in spades with countless stunning gardens, beautiful countryside walks and sea safaris all on your doorstep. Take a look at our selection of fabulous holiday cottages to find the perfect place for a short break.

 

Last minute dog friendly cottages

Cornwall is a great location for long walks, both muddy and sandy! Get a great deal on an exceptional pet friendly holiday. Whether your four-legged friend is a salty sea dog or a pampered pooch, we’re sure they’ll feel right at home in one of our dog friendly properties. Wide open beaches are brilliant, but one that allows dogs can be tricky to find once the summer beach bans are in place. 

Never fear though, as Cornwall has a host of rather special inland walks that will not disappoint, with plenty of pet friendly pubs to welcome you along the way. And if it’s sea views you crave, the entire Coast Path is dog friendly and has stunning views all the way round. These handpicked properties welcome you and your dog with open arms, and many come with fully enclosed gardens and even a few extra treats waiting on arrival. 

 

Reasons for a last minute holiday
