Inspired by the changing of the season, we have selected a range of feel good winter retreats in Cornwall.
As the Autumn leaves drop and the air gathers a chill, we look to inspirational places and spaces to find calm and contemplation. Discover wild woodland retreats and beach hideaways, where days can be spent walking on blustery Cornish beaches and evenings around a warming fire.
Wild Woodland Retreat : Forest Holidays, Deerpark
Far from the madding crowd, Forest Holiday cabins in Deerpark, Cornwall occupy an idyllic setting deep in the forest. Most are on the edge of an ancient millpond, while other cabins are set on the valley amongst towering pines offering incredible views.
The surrounding woodland is home to rare plant species and an abundance of wildlife including, naturally, roe deer. Away from the tranquillity of this location, you can be at the Cornish coast in less than 15 minutes, exploring, among other delights, the pretty fishing villages of Looe and Polperro.
Dog Friendly Beach Retreat : Ty Bach Twt Beach House
This luxury and contemporary beach house is a stunning retreat that sleeps eight, and has uninterrupted views of the wild cornish sea. The retreat is exceptionally well equipped and has underfloor heating for comfort. Ty Bach Twt is set right by the amazing beach at Gwithian Towans, and has direct access to wild sand dunes and the Cornish coast path.
Magical Stargazing Retreat : Peswara Ekopod
Tranquil Ekopod is the perfect escape for couples. Each pod has been individually designed with a king size bed, wood burning stove, a kitchen and bathroom annexe and a terrace to capture the wonderful views.
Ekopod is about more than simply being comfy under canvas. It’s about living with nature in a way that treads lightly upon the planet. At Ekopod we don’t use any electricity in the pods, which as well as benefiting the environment gives a feeling child-like fun to everything you do. And that’s what you get from a holiday with us – a sense of returning to the simpler things in life (but in comfort).
Located in Bodmin Moor, in an area known locally as “The Peaceful Valley”, just a short distance from the dramatic coastline, Ekopod is an excellent base camp for exploring Cornwall.
Crafty Workshop and Getaway : Bedruthan Steps Spa and Beach Jewellery Workshop

Stay in a natural playground with the beach just below you and stunning coastline on the doorstep. What would you like to do…? Drift away as you gaze out to sea from the spa’s giant hydro pool.
