The reason why I have chosen to feature Cornwall in my blog is to share a holiday where you don’t have to spend air fare prices!So how does this qualify for a discount? ( I hear you cry). Well my boyfriend and I were looking for a cheap holiday destination ( not too far away) and he suggested Cornwall. 

We traveled by car to Truro and stayed at the Alverton Hotel a Bar and Brasserie in Cornwall which stands on a hillside setting right at the heart of the Cathedral City of Truro close to the city center.

How did we save money?

If we had chosen a holiday outside of the UK then we would have been left with the dilemma of paying to hire a car or relaying on a bus service to travel around in. However since we had the car with us we didn’t need to worry about that since the local amenities were very close. The shopping center is a twenty minute walk from the hotel. Familiar high street chains such as New Look, Lush and Primark (to name a few) were also found!

On our first day we stopped of at Sam’s and the service and food didn’t disappoint.

Although it was a short break, it has left a lasting impression strong enough to visit this beautiful place and the Alverton hotel again!
