Gwel an Mor Luxury Resort, Portreath offer a self catering holiday, you are not left entirely to your own devices unless you want to be.

For stunning views and lush greenery, Penzance is a popular choice, visited for nearby Land's End. For watersports enthusiasts, Newquay is a lively town filled with surfer-types and great swell. The Eden Project in St Austell is a domed haven for botanists, with stunning gardens and unusual plants. The Lost Gardens of Heligan are also close by, perfect if you love the countryside.
London; The capital of England and the busiest place on the planet. With so much to see we can promise you'll never be bored. The amount of places to eat is phenomenal, and every restaurant goes above and beyond to make sure you have the most special dining experience with the best quality foods out there. However, London comes at a price, and a very large one at that, so get saving. Go shopping down Bond Street , Home to some of the world’s most prestigious retailers including Asprey, Bulgari, Burberry, Yves Saint Laurent, Chanel, Cartier, Dolce Gabbana, Hermès, Jimmy Choo, Louis Vuitton, Mulberry, Ralph Lauren and Tiffany & Co. Bond Street offers an unrivalled mix of history, traditional elegance and modern luxury.
Infamous places to stay include The Savoy ( perfect if you're wanting luxury and are willing to splash a bit of cash), The ME hotel, The Lanesborough, The Marylebone, The Hoxton Shoreditch, The Ned, The Waldorf Hilton, and if you're wanting a cheaper weekend then Premier Inns can be found dotted all around London.
Our last recommendation would be the Lake District. Places to eat and drink that we would recommend are; The Fizzy Tarte, L'enclume in Cartmel, Porto Restaurant, Baha Bowness, Gilpin Lake Hotel and Lake house which has 2 restaurants, one called Gilpin Spice which is a more causal eating restaurant and Hrishi which can include a tasting menu, or a plant based menu and afternoon teas.
Fantastic days out in the Lake District can be spent walking in the hills or spending the day at the spa. There are many spas In the Lakes but to list a few; MacDonald Hotel and Spa, Daffodil Hotel and Spa and Low Wood bay and resort.
Of course there are obviously so many places to visit in the UK but we thought we would give you a taste of our 3 favourite and why they are our favourite. Take a look HERE for more staycation ideas.
