Breaking News ! Hundreds of hotels are still taking bookings in Cornwall despite the country being in lockdown. Online travel agency Booking.com shows over 350 available hotels and properties that can be booked for this weekend alone in the county despite people only being able to travel for a small number of exceptions. All hospitality venues were allowed to remain open after Boris Johnson announced the third national lockdown in the UK but many hotels quickly took the decision to close entirely for this duration. However many are still remaining open for a multitude of reasons and are permitted to do so as long as it is on the basis of very few exceptions. Those include people who are still allowed to stay overnight with their support bubble, people travelling and staying away from their homes for essential work, if you are seeking refuge or escaping harm, if you are moving house or if you need accommodation to attend a funeral. The government website states: "You cannot leave your home or the place where you are living for holidays or overnight stays unless you have a reasonable excuse for doing so. This means that holidays in the UK and abroad are not allowed. "This includes staying in a second home or caravan, if that is not your primary residence. This also includes staying with anyone who you don’t live with unless they’re in your support bubble.

. "Accommodation providers are also encouraged to work cooperatively with local authorities to provide accommodation to vulnerable groups, including the homeless." While you are here take a minute to let us know your holiday plans for this year in our survey below. The full list of reasons that you can stay away overnight: are visiting your support bubble are unable to return to your main residence need accommodation while moving house need accommodation to attend a funeral or related commemorative event require accommodation for work purposes or to provide voluntary services are a child requiring accommodation for school or care are homeless, seeking asylum, a vulnerable person seeking refuge, or if escaping harm (including domestic abuse) are an elite athlete or their support staff or parent, if the athlete is under 18 and it is necessary to be outside of the home for training or competition. A spokesperson for Booking.com explained: "During this rapidly evolving time, Booking.com is committed to featuring information across its site reiterating to customers that there are currently travel restrictions to consider in many destinations. "We also have tools in place, which many of our UK accommodations have adopted, that provide clear information to guests about what national and local measures mean and indicate any conditions that may apply, including requiring proof of essential travel where relevant, ensuring that crucial workers still have access to accommodation when required. "We continue to monitor the current situation closely and the ways in which governments around the world are adjusting travel restrictions, working with our global partners on the information they provide customers while adhering to their own government guidance. "As the situation evolves, we continue to update the support we provide and our customer service team is available 24/7 to answer any questions and offer support to any partners or customers."
