The Roseland peninsula on Cornwall's southern shore offers quiet coves and craggy cliffs to explore. Here, in the tiny fishing village of Portloe, you'll find the Lugger Hotel, which currently has a winter offer of two nights with breakfast, a champagne cream tea and one dinner for £138 per person. The deal is valid for stays until the end of March (though with the exception of the half-term week, 10-19 February), but you'll have to book by this Friday to take advantage. Luggerhotel.co.uk
