Short Breaks in Cornwall – Mullion Cove

We have three holiday resorts in Cornwall with short breaks available where you can stay for as little as three days with prices starting at just £130.

If you are looking for a resort which is designed for the whole family, you may want to consider Sandymouth Holiday Resort. This park won the family fun in Cornwall category at the Hoseasons Awards 2015 and it is clear to see why, with extensive family friendly facilities including a crazy golf course, football field and the exciting Black Pearl Adventure Play Area.

Alternatively you could stay at Mullion Cove Coastal Retreat which is the perfect place to escape from the stresses and strains of everyday life, being located in a tranquil location on the Lizard Peninsula. On-park facilities are limited here because it is all about peace and relaxation, but the holiday lodges are extensively equipped with everything you could ever need for a short self catered break in the region.

Another option is Piran Meadows Resort & Spa which has just been named Holiday Park of the year at the 2015 Hoseasons Awards. One of the major reasons for the success of Piran Meadows has been the 5 Star on-park facilities, which includes the relaxing Serenity Spa where you can take advantage of a range of therapies and treatments available from our expertly trained professionals that work on park. This makes Piran Meadows is a great destination for short spa breaks in the region.
