How to save money on your Cornwall Holiday

Everyone wants to be able to enjoy a summer holiday and it really doesn’t have to cost the earth. There are many ways to ensure that the cost of your holiday to Cornwall doesn’t break the bank.

1. Great news! You’re staying in the UK.

Choosing to holiday in the UK means that you don’t have to worry about the exchange rate of the Euro or the cost of added extras from budget airlines. Taking a trip to Cornwall not only means that you will be contributing to the UK economy, you have the best chance of the weather being great, as Cornwall is one of the sunniest places in the UK with more than 1540 hours of sunshine every year.

2. Holiday as a group

If you can bear to go on holiday with extended family or friends this can be a fantastic way to save money. You can split the cost of accommodation and club together to have a barbeque on the beach. If you are going on holiday with children, going with another family means that the kids can play together and the adults can take it in turn to look after the children meaning you can all get a rest too.

3. Planning is key!

Once you know who is going away you can start to plan what you will do when you get there. Whether you fancy a day out to Newquay Zoo, The Eden Project or trying our watersports like sailing or windsurfing, booking online before you go can often save your wallet. Looking online can also often mean that you can get great discount vouchers for buy one get one free entrance on family attractions.

4. Make the most of Cornwall’s natural beauty

Enjoying Cornwall’s natural scenery costs nothing! Take a bucket and spade with you and enjoy the golden sandy beach at St Ives or take your surf board and have a go surfing the waves at Newquay. Or bring your walking boots and set off on a coastal walk. You could even strap your bikes to the back of the car and enjoy a family bike ride along Cornwall’s winding lanes. The choice is yours!

5. Pick self catering accommodation

Choosing self-catering accommodation means that you can bring some groceries from home and top up on supplies with a trip to a local market. You can make packed lunches to take out with you too. There are plenty of self catering options like hostels and log cabins as well as lots of cottages in Cornwall to choose from for your tip. Being self-catered in Cornwall is also a great chance to enjoy local food like super fresh fish, a clotted cream scone and the ultimate budget snack, a Cornish pasty.
