Wow this year is going by so fast! Can you guys believe it’s almost July? I don’t know about you, but after working so hard since Christmas, I’m ready for a holiday!
The last thing I want to do is get on a plane and deal with all the stress that comes with an international holiday though. If you’re ready to relax, but don’t want the stress or expense of an international trip, why not spend some time in a cottage on the coast of Cornwall?
First, let’s look at what a cottage holiday actually is. Many people own holiday cottages throughout the UK, but since they don’t live in them full time, they rent them out to holiday makers looking for a break. The great things about this is that just like a normal home, there are a huge variety of types of cottages available. That means that you can choose a large cottages with hot tubs if you’re travelling with family or friends, a small cottage if you’re solo or just with one other person, or one that allows pets if you’re hoping to bring the dog.
This also means that regardless of your budget, you’re sure to be able to find an option for you.
Cornwall is one of the most popular choices for cottage holidays for a variety of reasons. The first, is that there’s so much to do for the whole family. Stroll amongst ancient ruins, grab afternoon tea at a local cafe, enjoy fish and chips down on the beach, or go shopping for local artwork.
Cornwall used to be a blue-collar area, known for mining, farming, and fishing. This is no longer the case, and the town evolved with the times, becoming known as a top tourist destination for Brits and visitors from around the world.
This is the place to go if you’re hoping to get back to nature. Cornwall is well known for its many beaches, and since it has a sub-tropical climate, you’ll find that it’s much warmer here throughout the year than most other places within the UK. The coast is perfect for long walks (don’t forget to take your camera) and there are also plenty of activities in the area if you’re planning to bring the kids.
This is a place where the pace of life is just slower. Compared to the cities, Cornwall is much more relaxed, making it the perfect option if you need to spend a few days away from it all.
It’s also a very popular place for creative types. There are many markets where you can buy local art, and you can even take a pottery class yourself. If you’ve been working on your own creative endeavour in your free time, be sure to spend a few days in Cornwall for some rest, relaxation, and inspiration.
