This year is set to be a bumper one for British seaside destinations as more than half (58%) of respondents to a UK survey commissioned by Travelodge said they plan to holiday or take a mini break to the coast this summer - and Cornwall is top of the charts for the second year running.

The survey also showed that Britons will spend more than ever on their UK holiday this year – splashing out £729.80 on their breaks to give the UK economy a welcome boost of almost £20 billion.

The report, which has surveyed 3,000 British adults for the past six years, shows that 2016 is set to be the biggest year for a jaunt to the seaside since the study started.

The study also reveals that the average British family is taking a one-week holiday supported by four short breaks throughout 2016. A fifth (19%) of families are going all out and taking a ‘traditional’ two-week holiday.

We've plenty of properties to choose from - whether you would like a full week or a short break. But be quick - Cornwall's popular! Simply go to our homepage for more information.
