Self-catering coastal holiday cottages in West Cornwall

Stay at one of our self-catering coastal holiday cottages in West Cornwall; we have properties large and small for you to choose from including fisherman’s cottages, chic sea view apartments, large country farmhouses, and romantic glamping prospects by the coast. A coastal escape to West Cornwall is perfect at any time of year; home to the county’s legendary folklore, West Cornwall is both magical and enchanting. With fun attractions for the little ones and romantic walks along the rugged coastline for couples, West Cornwall is also ideal for family holidays or weekends away for two in one of our coastal cottages.

Cornwall feels like a separate country from the rest of the UK, and yet again, West Cornwall feels even further removed. Characterised by its lack of woodlands across vast swathes of its area, much of the far west of Cornwall was cleared for industry and arable farming. Much of the ground now is low lying or sparse, criss-crossed with ancient stone Cornish hedges and the remnants of Cornwall’s mining heritage. Old engine houses and mine buildings lay ruined across the landscape, or in precarious positions on the cliff tops like the Crown Mines at Botallack in St Just. Modern visitor attractions have been hewn from this heritage and you can visit old mines that have been turned into museums at Levant and Geevor (both just outside St Just). The most popular visitor attraction in West Cornwall is Land’s End, which is the furthest point west on mainland Britain and a fun attraction with a 3-D cinema, places to eat and lots of fun and games for all visitors of all ages.

Visitor attractions and places of historical interest in West Cornwall include Flambard’s Theme Park near Helston that offers the ultimate day out for all the family; RNAS Culdrose is a major military base with a viewing platform where you can see fighter jets come and go. Another fab place for a day trip is the majestic St Michael’s Mount close to the large seaside resort Penzance, which is England’s most westerly large town. Head to Penzance for handy promenade walks, antique shops, and handy amenities. You could also catch a plane to fly to the Scilly Isles from there too. If you love surfing, the main beaches in West Cornwall are Sennen, Praa Sands, and Gunwalloe.

The best-loved towns and villages to stay in West Cornwall are home to picturesque cottages and cosy farmhouses. Be sure to browse our collection of holiday accommodation in St Ives, with its harbour, beach, narrow streets, and one of the four Tate Galleries in the UK; Mousehole for its picture-perfect Cornish houses and pubs facing across St Michael’s Bay, or the double-harbour town of Porthleven with its quayside restaurants and opportunities for dramatic photographs when the storms come in the winter.

You can find out even more about West Cornwall in our useful blogs that cover walks, best fishing villages, dog-friendly places, food and drink, surfing, things to do and more.
