2018 holiday inspiration

Looking forward to feeling the warmth of the sun on your face and an empty to-do list? It's officially time to start counting down to your next holiday, so here are a few ideas to get you started...

Four ideas for your next Cornwall escape:

1. Spring walking break

The bright splashes of colour in the hedgerows, the dancing daffodils lined up in the fields, the Spring bulbs bursting into life - just some of the reasons we love Cornwall in the Spring. After months of freezing mornings, dark evenings, and naked tree branches, it's finally time to celebrate the arrival of colour!

Callestock Spring walking break

Spring is the perfect time to enjoy Cornwall - with milder temperatures and longer days, you'll love exploring the Cornish countryside. Our resident dog-walking companion Sandy can show you all the very best walks around Callestock, and Liz can give you some insider knowledge so you can discover some of the region's very best walks around the coast.

3. Autumn foodie break

Cornwall has become a bit of a foodie favourite, with celebrity chefs such as Rick Stein, Nathan Outlaw and Jamie Oliver all opening restaurants in Cornish villages in recent years.

And it's not just the finished dishes that are delicious - the county is also a hub for artisan food and drink producers, with award winning cheeses, wines, teas and fish appearing on menus all over the county. The region celebrates its high quality food and drink at the annual festival in Truro, where you'll get to try clotted cream, real ales, chutneys, cured meats and more.

Europe's Christmas markets have been popular for decades, but Cornwall is also now becoming well known for its fantastic Winter markets.
