If the beautiful weather has got you thinking about getting away, slipping on that bathing costume and enjoying some summer sun, you’re not alone. Tens of thousands of people across the UK have begun to make their summer plans with destinations as varied as you can imagine, but for those that want something a little different this year, book yourself onto a self-catering holiday in Cornwall.

Why? ….

Summer 2017 is going to be hot in the UK

Many of us get out of the UK for our summer holidays to enjoy the sunshine, but what if you could get that experience without the hassle of overseas travel? Well, that’s the promise of summer 2017, if you believe the forecasters.

Blistering conditions are apparently set to arrive in the UK this Summer, as heat surges from Europe push the temperature to a near record-breaking 38C. Even better for you sunbathers out there, the heat could last for three months!

Couple that with Cornwall’s traditionally higher average temperature than the rest of the country and you’ve got the basis for sun worshiper’s dream.

Cornwall is an amazing cultural destination…

If you go on holiday for the opportunity to take in some history and culture, you won’t be disappointed by Cornwall. From the myriad of fantastic art galleries on offer to the sweeping vistas, seismic history and truly incredible cultural locations like the Minack Theatre.

You’ll also find dozens of castles, country houses, gardens, ports, mines and other fascinating, historical locations within a short stroll of our Carbis Bay and St Ives properties, making our summer breaks extremely walking friendly.

And it’s got world class restaurants!

Having the license to eat out is one of the best things about going on holiday (at least for us), but the quality of the food on offer can vary wildly. That’s simply not the case with the food and drink in Cornwall, which boasts no less than nine 2017 Michelin Starred restaurants, alongside hundreds of stunning and underrecognized eateries.

In line with the UK’s eclectic food culture, you can expect stunning seafood, classic curries, sizzling steaks, bombastic barbeque, essential English and much, much more. Whoever you’re with or whatever your taste, Cornwall’s world class food culture has you cover. Or, if you’d prefer to stay in and dine, St Ives and Carbis Bay’s award winning butchers, fishmongers and bakers have the fresh produce you crave.

It’s extremely affordable

Exchange rates are far from favourable at the moment, making travelling abroad more expensive than it’s been in a decade for the English holidayer. Couple that with the unexpected costs of going abroad and you’ve got a significant outlay.

That’s where a summer break in Cornwall really comes into its own. You can bring your own car, leave the passports in the draw, skip the lines at the bureau de change, get the family in the car and be at your holiday destination within hours – saving money that you can then use on the little treats which make a holiday amazing.
