It’s getting closer to the Easter holidays, and for those of you who haven’t planned so far ahead, there are some great cottages still available for a break away with the family or as a couple.

Aldermoor Cottages (sleeps 2-4) near Camelford in Cornwall are three cottages set in idyllic green surroundings with wild flowers, perfect in spring. The cottages are set within their own grounds and are ideally located for touring Cornwall and North Devon. You are within easy walking distance of the Moors and only minutes from surfing beaches, including the old market town of Camelford 1.5 miles away. The pretty fishing harbours of Boscastle, Port Isaac and Padstow are also within easy reach, as are many excellent coastal and moorland walks and the famous Camel Trail (bikes can be hired locally).

Or alternatively if you are in the mood for a romantic getaway for just the two of you, why not try Helpful Holidays’ the Bothy; a private, single-storey cottage with French windows overlooking its little wild garden with lovely views beyond. Approached by 80 yards of sloping path, there are 4 steps up to a glazed door opening into a large open-plan room with high exposed beams, comfy sofa, TV/DVD, dining table/chairs, woodburner, imposing four-poster bed (5’), floorboards/rug and wall-hung tapestries; 2 steps up to little kitchen with combi-microwave and separate electric hob, through to shower-room (suite). No children, except pre-crawling babies. A very romantic cottage situated near Exmoor and only 2.5 miles from the little pebble beach at dramatic Heddon’s Mouth.

Finally, if those don’t quite fit, there’s always a sea and shipping themed holiday at this third floor apartment with 180 degree sea view of ships (and the occasional warship) entering Plymouth from Helpful Holidays’ 48 Fort Picklecombe (R378). This well-kept apartment comprises of hall leading to living/dining room, smart fitted kitchen area (washer-drier, microwave) with TV/DVD, full of interesting pictures and pieces of china, and glazed doors to balcony (table/chairs), all with superb sea views (telescope). At the back, overlooking the gardens there are two bedrooms – one twin (VDU/DVD/video), and one with single and pull-out truckle; bathroom (suite plus bath-shower).
