As the winter continues, it is the perfect time to escape to a serene bolthole in Cornwall to rest and rejuvenate with a relaxing Hygge-style stay.

Hygge, the traditional Danish word for ‘wellbeing and protection from the outside elements’ lends itself beautifully to a warming, winter break in the tranquil Cornish countryside or ruggedly wild coastline. Traditionally associated with the colder months, Hygge is a feeling created by immersing yourself in your surroundings with warm lighting and snug interiors; soft linens, comfy blankets, and nature-inspired interiors.

Perfect for a heartwarming seasonal getaway or starting the new year with a deeply soothing break, the team at Aspects Holidays share a few of their favourite Hygge-inspired holiday cottages.
