MANY of Cornwall hotels and campsites are already full up for the summer as a UK booking boom is seeing huge demand for holiday hotspots.
However, there is still some availability – but you might not get the places you want this year.

Visit Cornwall boss Malcom Bell said that many hotels and popular campsites will be sold out but there will be other options available.
He told CornwallLive: "Cornwall isn’t fully booked yet, but we’re telling people to book now to avoid disappointment. This year will be busier than last year.
"The hotels might be full but the B&Bs aren’t – the most popular campsites might be full but there are other campsites.
"It’s a bit like an overflow tank – you‘ll hear lots of agencies say ‘we’re full’ but there are a lot of tourism businesses that aren’t because they don’t get the same reach."

He said that during the busy August months, as many as 180,000 are likely to visit, on top of the 530,000 locals, including an extra 20,000 day visitors.
Mr Bell warned families to book now as it will only get more popular during the peak holiday months as anyone who normally went abroad won't be able to this summer.
Holidays abroad are yet to be given the go-ahead although experts have warned it won't be before July – putting summer holiday plans at risk.
The government's Global Travel Taskforce will announce next month when holidays can go ahead.
However, the Covid situation abroad is likely to put pause to overseas travel despite the UK's successful vaccination rollout, as countries in the EU are seeing a third wave and slow uptake of the vaccine.
Last month, Mr Bell warned that families were even asking to be put on waiting lists for Cornwall holidays this summer.
He told Sun Online Travel: "The demand is there – there are lots of people asking to be put on waiting lists for self-catered places.
"People are phoning up, saying 'I know you are fully booked but will you take my phone number in case something comes up in July?'"
Cornwall holiday demand has even stretched to Christmas as families move their 2020 holidays to this year.
You can buy a Cornish holiday home with stunning sea views which has gone on the market for £650,000 – but you can only stay a few weeks a year.
Here are some other UK holiday deals for the summer from just £49.
