I always spend time thinking about taking a summer holiday or short trip - it seldom occurs though, just once per year on average I get a real holiday with my family, friends or partner. One thing which I see as a more and more inviting idea is that of mini break holidays - taking advantage of the bank holidays and a day or so each side to make the most of time. Consider that going away for a week or longer your probably need to sort a whole bunch of stuff out before you head out, less needs to be sorted on a shorter break and one will hopefully not spend as much money on their holiday.

Cornwall is a perfect place to take a mini break, there is loads to do and tourists can fly directly into the County from some European countries and domestically from London. The transportation network has had much investment and is capable of providing amenities for holiday makers - albeit a little cramped during the peak summer months.

Some cool ideas for a short break around Cornwall:

Depending upon the time scales you have given yourself a day to two days, I would recommend during the first day heading up to the Eden Project and spending the entire day there - visiting each of the amazing bio domes and amazing at the entire operation, grab your lunch here, there is so much to see you could spend the entire day. Follow the Eden Project up with dinner somewhere in Fowey; there are some fantastic pubs and eateries here capable of rustling up some tasty treats! Accommodation can be sourced in East Cornwall or booked in advance; personally I would book in advance.

Take a look at some of the alternative options for accommodation - typically hotels and guest houses in this area are quite pricey, camping or hiring a campervan gives you the freedom and mobility to stay anywhere in the County of Cornwall, next to a beach, in the woodlands.. anywhere (legal).

On your next day be sure to head to the coast, my preference (and probably bias) recommends the north coast, driving the entire coast gives you the chance to visit some of the fantastic little Cornish seaside towns, villages - on this coast there is such a contrast between say the likes of quaint Padstow and the party surf town of Newquay. Head as far as you can in a day with occasional stops in places which interest you.

If you have some more time then Cornwall has so much more to offer you, each coast has its unique rugged features and spoils of beautiful beaches and quaint townships, enjoy!
