Make the most of Cornwall in Spring

Looe Valley Bluebells

A couple of days in Cornwall in Spring can give you the motivation you need to carry on with those New Year resolutions. Banishing the winter blues and recharging flat batteries is part of the tonic you get from sucking in some fresh Cornish air. And if you’re still worried about the Christmas credit card bill, a short break in Looe won’t add an extra burden!

A visit to Looe, a change of scene, a slower pace, taking some time out, can be the path to relaxation. You can beat the stress and find your balance. If you book even just a 2 or 3 night short break – it won’t break the bank. At Polraen Country House, prices start from just £70 per person in February/March.  In April, perhaps £10 per person higher but worth it to see the bluebells – a sight not to be missed in the Looe Valley.



Cornwall in Spring = Bargain Breaks

For not much more than the cost of a couple of theatre tickets or a night out, you and your partner could  escape to a beautiful quiet Cornish historic former coaching inn. Imagine waking up to a magnificent breakfast overlooking beautiful gardens in a hotel bed and breakfast just 2 miles from Looe and the sea.  Surprise someone by adding a Special Occasion package of Champagne and Chocolates or Flowers at £35.  Perfect for a special occasion when visiting Cornwall in spring.
