Girls’ weekends away in Cornwall

What could be better than a weekend away with the girls? Whether you’re planning a hen weekend, celebrating a special birthday or simply fancy treating yourselves to a short break, Cornwall offers plenty of scope to indulge your passions and tempt your taste buds.

Self-catering gives you the ultimate flexibility for a weekend away. Our cottages have all the mod cons you’d expect, plus plenty of communal space so you can kick back, relax and really make the most of your time together.

Our stylish eco-house, Lowen, sleeps eight and has heaps of room inside and out, plus a private hot tub. If you prefer something a little more traditional, take a look at our Farmhouse. Dating back to the 17th century, it’s full of quirky charm and character and can sleep up to 12. It now has the added luxury of its own hot tub too!


Create your perfect break

Planning is the key to any successful group weekend away. While you don’t want to map out every minute of your time together, you’ll probably need to book some activities (like spa treatments and craft workshops) in advance. It’s also worth doing a bit of research and putting together a list of things you’d like to do or visit that you can choose from during the weekend.
