Discover Cornwall during a weekend break

Mysterious moorland, rugged coastline and the wild beauty of Poldark country. Family-friendly beaches, celebrity restaurants and a multitude of local attractions. Cornwall is the setting for just one of our 12 peaceful forest locations in the UK, where freedom awaits on a weekend break.

A weekend in Cornwall's forests

There’s more to Cornwall than summer holidays, and a weekend away with friends or family is a great way to reconnect, whatever the season. Everything is within easy reach so that you can get the absolute most out of your time.

Once you are here, it’s amazing how quickly you relax. Spend your weekend on the beach, cycling or walking across the moors, or exploring Cornwall’s stunning parks and gardens. Back at your cabin, discover the secrets of Cornwall’s past on a Forest Ranger adventure, before sinking back into your hot tub beneath the stars.

Self-catering Cornwall breaks

When it comes to mealtimes, relax and order dinner, treats and drinks, all for delivery to your cabin. That way, you have more time to enjoy your surroundings. Rare birds and butterflies thrive here, the mild climate gives life to lush and colourful flowers, and the forest setting is peaceful and therapeutic. A weekend in Cornwall is a wonderful way to reset your dial and feel truly refreshed.

Take a weekend break exploring the best of Cornwall

Cornwall lends itself to a weekend break, for couples, for families or for groups of friends. This beautiful peninsular offers an escape from the hubbub, it’s small enough to explore, and there’s an almost endless choice of things to do.

  • Coast and countryside

    Over the course of a weekend in Cornwall, you can wander through the picturesque harbour villages of Looe and Polperro, take a picnic along the coastal path to enjoy the sea views, or head inland for the wild beauty of Bodmin Moor and its prehistoric standing stones.

  • Action and adventure

    If you have energy to burn, Cornwall is the place to burn it. Go surfing in Newquay, fly through the air at Adrenalin Quarry or try wakeboarding at Siblyback Lake. Visit the Eden Project, where, inside the biomes, exotic flowers and plants bloom, and outside, wild adventures await, with zipwires, climbing walls and giant swings. Then hire cycles and explore the Camel Trail or the Clay Trails.

  • Natural relaxation

    Take time to enjoy the beautiful landscape on your weekend in Cornwall. The moorland and coastline, the woodlands and the gardens. Back in the forest, where your cabin awaits, simply relax and enjoy the natural peace and quiet.


The perfect spot for a weekend break, our cabin location at Deerpark is in the easiest part of Cornwall to get to, and it is close to the famous Eden Project, the moors and the south-east coast.

This scenic coastline is known as the Cornish Riviera, because of its warmer than average climate, picturesque fishing villages that tumble down cliffsides, and golden sandy beaches.

After a day’s adventures, your cabin at Deerpark awaits. Here you can watch the sun set over the ancient millpond, deep in the forest, and let this beautiful corner of Cornwall work its magic on

Weekend breaks in Cornwall with hot tubs

Every cabin at Deerpark has its own outdoor hot tub, which you can use as often as you like on your weekend break. Whether you are with family or friends, or on a romantic break for two, the hot tub is always a highlight.

Set around the millpond and surrounded by mature woodland, Deerpark is a perfectly secluded spot, meaning you can relax in peace and enjoy the luxury of sinking into the bubbles with the birds singing in the trees or the soft moonlight casting its glow between the trees.
