Holidays always seem to be best in summer, when warm, dry weather is a guarantee, but there are merits of taking a holiday off-peak and out of the school holiday time, especially for adults who want to avoid crowds of children at popular tourist attractions. Book a stay at our boutique hotel in Cornwall in April and May to enjoy our springtime offer and avoid the hustle and bustle that comes in the summer.

Fewer Crowds

When you have experienced popular attractions in Cornwall such as the Eden Project in the height of summer, you will understand the attraction of visiting during off-peak seasons. Though some places will always be busy - just proving how popular and unmissable the attraction is! - avoiding crowds of younger children is appealing, giving you more chance to enjoy the beauty and means you won't miss out the details!

Good Weather

Everyone wants good weather on their holidays, and while summer is a guarantee of hot weather, a milder temperature of spring is better allowing you to be more active and not uncomfortable in the heat. You can enjoy being outdoors and indoors, there is no need for heavy coats, and a light raincoat or umbrella is all you need if there is a chance of rain. Best of all, the spring weather is perfect for spotting wildlife and plants, and Cornwall is in full bloom in the late spring months!

Happy Locals

Holidaying in months that do not see tonnes of tourists often means you are greeted by friendly locals, not those who are exhausted by the busy season. Off-peak, there is more chance to interact with the locals, learn about hidden gems in the area and the best places for eating out. It is much better to know about the place you are visiting from the people who live there than reading up online.

Like Minded Holidaymakers

When travelling and holidaying during the off-peak season, you are more likely to meet fellow holidaymakers with similar interests and disposition to yourself. This makes for a relaxing atmosphere wherever you go and an opportunity to meet new friends.

Discounts and Deals

It is well-known that cottages, hotels and holiday accommodations hike the prices up in their busiest times, but that means a more expensive holiday and the possibility of missing out on some fantastic discounts and deals! At the Cormorant Hotel, we are currently offering a reduced two-night spring garden break throughout April and May, excluding the Bank Holidays. The offer includes dinner every evening and discounted entry to Trebah Garden and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
