Torpoint in Cornwall

Discover a break that escapes the madding crowds

We’re all thrilled that there’s an end to lockdown life in sight and we’re able to look ahead to less…distanced days. That said, after so long in our own bubbles you’d be forgiven for feeling a little hesitant about holidaying in a lively destination.

We know that many of you are happier slowly easing your way of out lockdown life at a pace you feel comfortable, and breaks in Cornwall are perfect for those of you keen to avoid the crowds of summer.

Did someone say windswept scenery and nobody for miles? We have just the breaks for you. Cornwall is blessed with unspoilt scenery that makes you feel like a dot on the landscape, and best of all, it’s full of wide-open spaces and clifftop destinations, like Torpoint that can be seen glistening in the picture above!

The beauty of Cornwall holidays is that you can choose whether to head to the nearest resort for some pub grub and sightseeing, or just hop in the car and drive in the other direction to find your own little slice of Heaven. Either way, the choice is yours.

Watergate Bay in Cornwall

Watergate Bay

The idea of Watergate Bay probably evokes images of surfers showing off their skills on foreboding waves, but there’s plenty to enjoy if you’re happier on dry land too. Home to a seemingly endless sandy beach, Watergate Bay is just the spot to catch your breath after a rollercoaster year.

Just imagine lazy picnics on breezy headland while the waves crash the shore beneath you, or long walks taking in sea views. However you want to recharge those batteries, this beautiful corner of Newquay is just the place to do it. If you are feeling like trying something new, the Extreme Academy Surf School offers surfing lessons for all ages!

The Tamar Valley in Cornwall

The Tamar Valley

If you’re going to get out and about, you may as well head to an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Tamar Valley is perfect for finding your spirit of adventure and making memories together. Hire a bike and cycle the Tamar Trails, or head to one of East Cornwall’s sleepy seaside resorts for a day by the sea.

The Tamar Valley is a scenic wooded river valley that stretches all the way from Bodmin Moor to Dartmoor National Park. We love the fact that there’s space to make your holiday entirely yours, and plenty of opportunity to stay off the beaten track.

Bude in Cornwall


Last but not least, there’s Bude. Found on Cornwall’s rugged north coast, Bude sits right on the border between Devon and Cornwall. Often overlooked in favour of Cornwall’s more southerly destinations, this unspoilt stretch of coast has a beauty all its own.

Whether you visit Crooklets or Summerleaze Beach, both sandy spots have space for everyone, even on the warmest sunny day. When the sun starts to set, you’ll find plenty of restaurants to choose from, and the resort’s small enough to have a friendly atmosphere all year round. For a wander away from the resort, pick up the South West Coast Path and take in the local scenery.
