Whether you want a relaxing holiday with massages and cocktails or an action-packed adventure, Cornwall has it all, read on to see why Cornwall is the perfect destination for a weekend break.


Cornwall is a place with an abundance of excellent food, from the lush farmland providing quality beef and lamb, to the various sea life found in the local waters, in addition to the local favourites of pasties, cream teas and Cornish Yarg. Dine at The Cormorant Hotel's award-winning restaurant or try a variety of other restaurants in the area; our restaurant sources its veg from local providers, and the food is all seasonal, so you can be sure to enjoy delicious food all year round!

Cornwall has a rich and varied heritage, and you can find interesting parts of the county's history all over if you know where to look. From King Doniert's Stone at Liskeard to Wheal Martyn Mine near St Austell, there are lots of historical spots to explore. Highlights include the historic town of Charlestown near Fowey and several quirky museums. Not only are these places of significant historical interest, but they are also located within gorgeous Cornish scenery too, giving you excellent photo opportunities.


With the gorgeous sunny weather looking like it here to stay, it is the perfect time to head to the beach. You and your partner can spend a day lounging on the golden sands, going for a dip in the sea and treating yourself to ice cream or two! Near our boutique hotel, there are many fantastic beaches to head to, such as Readymoney Cove and the secluded Lantic Bay. Cornwall is also lucky to have eight of its amazing beaches designated as Blue Flag, meaning they have top water quality, good amenities and clean sands.

Along with the many beaches, Cornwall has several castles to explore. On a bright sunny day, take the time out to wander the gardens as well as the castles themselves, and learn more about the medieval history of Cornwall and the roles the castles played in it. There are many to visit, from Launceston to Restormel and St Catherine's Castle which overlooks Fowey Harbour. St Catherine's Castle is an artillery fort dating to the 1530s and was built by Henry VIII to be part of a system of coastal defences.


Cornwall's sunny weather and warmer climate make it ideal for creating and cultivating stunning gardens, and as such, many of the gardens in the county have gorgeous exotic plants and flowers on display throughout the summer along with sculptures, mazes and other gems. A day strolling through The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Trebah Garden or Caerhays Castle Garden in the sun is a day well spent. There is also the world-renowned Eden Project just a short drive from our hotel which is well worth a visit, with its spectacular Biomes and outdoor gardens.

If there is a chance the weather turns, and you want a backup plan, why not book a massage at a spa? A great way to spend time with your loved one, and the ultimate way to relax, a spa treatment sounds ideal! The Cormorant also offers holistic treatments off-site with Sheila Morgan so that you can treat yourself to a massage, aromatherapy session or reflexology treatment. Contact Sheila on 07710 136307 to book for when you are staying. Her treatment room at her cottage is just five-minutes-walk from the hotel.


Cornwall has an abundance of wildlife, and you can get close to nature and closer to your partner with a country walk, spotting birds, animals and plants. Whether you opt for a coastal walk or a hike across the moors, you are sure to spot some fantastic creatures, all the while enjoying the stunning Cornish countryside. Alternatively, head out to sea on a boat ride where you can have the chance to see porpoise, dolphins and maybe a whale! Cornwall's waters are rich in food, which attracts plenty of interesting marine wildlife.
