Cornwall holiday cottages

Cornwall is a stunning peninsula in the South West of England with mile upon mile of craggy coastline, stretches of golden sand and clear waters with isles and islets standing proudly overlooking the mainland. The county is studded with English Heritage sites, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and National Trust properties as well as stunning gardens and attractions.

Home to many lovely self-catering Cornwall holiday cottages, vibrant cafes and celebrity restaurants, Cornwall has a cosmopolitan atmosphere and many boutique shops offering mementos of a fantastic Cornwall holiday. Choose from the popular town of St Ives or head to Newquay, the surfing capital of the county; we have plenty of properties in coastal locations so you will have some of the best cottages by the sea to choose from.

You can make it extra special by choosing one of our luxury cottages, many of which have their own hot tubs and boast their own pools. Make it complete and choose one of our dog-friendly cottages so that your four-legged friend can come too.

For an absolutely perfect holiday, choose the right holiday accommodation to suit your Cornish break.
