Holiday Cottages In Cornwall To Rent

Holiday Cottages in Cornwall

Littered with continental-quality beaches, swathed in spectacular scenery and soaking up the best of the summer sun, Cornwall is a favourite with visitors who want all the best bits of a holiday abroad, but without the language barrier and the funny-looking currency. However, our Cornwall Cottages will lead you to discover that there’s far more to this stunning part of the UK than soft sands and cream teas.

With some of the best surf in Britain, anyone with an interest in catching some waves will be well rewarded. Cornwall Cottages near Newquay will put you within reach of some of the local surfing hot-spots and you can even watch the professionals hang ten in the English National Surfing Championships. However, if that all sounds a little too energetic, then perhaps a touch of sightseeing is on the cards. Cornwall is soaked in Arthurian legend and there are some astonishing attractions to explore, such as Tintagel Castle and the magical Merlin’s Cave.

What can I do on my Holiday in Cornwall?

Think Cornwall and you probably think cream teas and pasties. Using Holiday Cottages in Cornwall as your base from which to explore the region puts you in touch with one of the most exciting gastronomic scenes in the UK. Being surrounded by the sea, there’s seafood aplenty on offer and many top-notch chefs have opened restaurants in the area; be sure to hunt out Rick Stein’s in Padstow (or ‘Padstein’, as the locals have christened it!) and Jamie Oliver’s pukka eatery, in Newquay. Alternatively, pick up some fish and chips from one of the many chippies along the coast and sit on the beach, serenaded by the sounds of the sea. A visit to Cornwall wouldn’t be complete without sampling one of the local pasties, championed as the ‘Best in the West’!

While Cornwall offers a spectacular backdrop for couples looking to enjoy some quality time together, there’s plenty for families to see and do. We offer a range of Holiday Cottages in Cornwall that are ideal for those with kids and will put you within a short distance of some of the best attractions Cornwall has to offer. Be sure to check out the botanical wonders offered by the Eden Project, the Monkey Sanctuary in Looe – or even catch a play at the Minac Theatre.

Cassy - verified booking

"S21193 was a delightful picturesque cottage in the heart of cadgwith, u can hear the bustling of the locals bringing in the fish and chatting amongst themselves! It is a stunning little cove and the cottage is the prettiest fairy tale cottage u could ever wish for, inside it is very quaint, very clean and tidy and Wendy the caretaker, who was very friendly and helpful had lovingly left a vase of flowers out on the table and biscuits with tea and a small bottle of milk ready for our arrival, which was a very welcome surprise after a 7 hour drive down from Manchester.There was an information book with every bit of information we could need, with a local dog friendly beach guide and details of local doctors surgeries which I had to visit due to horse fly bites (the evil buggers).The walk up and down from the car park is a pain in the butt every day but as a regular visitor to cadgwith I was aware of the walk before booking so this had no reflection on the cottage itself!!The local people who lived around the area were lovely, welcoming and very friendly other than crabby Annie that sits in the fish shop window poking her pick into crabs legs all day long, she was very rude, very unwelcoming and even gave us the middle finger when she blocked the tiny country lane down to the cove and refused to let the oncoming traffic pass! She didn't spoil my stay, I loved the cottage and would sit imagining what it would be like to live in such a beautiful place, the only negative comments I have about the cottage itself is the number of tourists the cottage drew in, I felt like a celebrity with the paparazzi outside constantly being photographed and even entering the garden to stand in the door way to take pictures of themselves, (cheeky buggers), I spent many a morning photobombing pictures being taken or waving at people outta the window! I was also a little bit gutted that when booking the cottage I paid extra for my little shidtzu dog to come along and enjoy the holiday with us but when I arrived there was notices up stating I wasn't allowed to leave her alone in the cottage, this was a little bit annoying as the weather was glorious outside and way too hot for my dog to be out all day in it!! If I'd have known prior to booking and paying the extra money that she was unable to stay in like she does at home I'd have made alternative arrangements for her to stay with friends.All that said I had a fantastic time and will remember my stay in cadgwith for a very long time."

"We have stayed at S21235 for the last 5 years, but unfortunately we do not believe we will return next year, was really disappointed this year.The downstairs bathroom light didn't work, it wasn't the bulb, it was the actually light fittings were dodgy, so couldn't use the bath or bathroom after 4pm. The tumble dryer wasn't working which we were told the day before we arrived when we rang, we were told the people before us blew it up but also that no-one had been there the week before we went, so couldn't understand why they had not been able to replace the tumble dryer. It was wet and windy, so needed this facility. The path / private road leading to the house was extremely muddy, which wasn't a problem in itself, but the house does not have a mat inside the front door so if you go into the conservatory you leave mud and dirt on the carpet, but there is a cleaning bill if you leave it dirty. With the house being by the beach and the whole point of going to stay there is to walk the coast line, you would think common sense would mean a mat of some sort would be used. Otherwise you have to stand out in the wet and rain to take your shoes off and then have no where to put them. Luckily we brought items to start a fire, as there was nothing but a bucket of coal, no paper, kindling or matches. The house was very cold when we arrived.The upstairs showers were just a trickle and cold most of the time. There was no cleaning products to be able to clean the bathrooms etc, which would have been handy.The large comfy armchair which use to be in the conservatory is no longer there, there are 2 small sofa's and a small chair, but these were not high enough to be comfortable to stare out to sea for long. Overall, really disappointed, which is shame as we have had some lovely weeks in this house, but do not think we will go again."

"We have given a very low score for cleanliness as on arrival we found the cottage hadn’t been cleaned since the previous occupants left, beds unusable as bed linen was dirty and so were all of the towels. We were unable to unpack or to shower and spent our first night after a eight hour journey on the sofa and the chair in the lounge. We were unable to contact yourselves or the owner as there was’nt a mobile signal in Port Isaac. This was resolved the next day and a cleaner arrived about midday, she was most apologetic although she wasn’t at fault.Generally the standard of cleanliness we have come to expect having stayed in previous holiday rentals was sadly lacking. The kitchen cupboards were very musty, the cooker was greasy, the sofa and chair in the lounge were stained and dirty. Also there were cobwebs in corners and a number of faulty lightbulbs. The second bedroom was swamped by the bed therefore it lacked a set-up to get ready. The main bedroom lacked any storage or hanging space for clothes and we lived out of our suitcases for the entire holiday. As it is an attic room we realise space is tight but a chest of drawers would easily have fitted into the space taken up by a blanket box. Maybe hanging could have been fitted between the rafters.In addition a dishwasher rather than a washing machine would have been much more appreciated. Basic items were not provided eg. A cafetière, salt and pepper grinders were empty. No welcome pack on arrival either. Although the cottage is marketed as being dog friendly dogs are only allowed downstairs, this should be made clear as the lounge is on the first floor."

"We all enjoyed S20720 , the best part being it’s location although getting to it and parking was a pain. It was equipped well but thought the washing machine a waste of time and space as no where to dry any washing ? A dishwasher would be far more useful . We had a giggle each time the loft toilet was used as we had never seen one like these in action , so noisy! but hey better than not having one .We all struggled trying to close doors as none of them closed hence I suddenly realised the reason for big balls of rope door stops in every room , the only way sometimes to keep the doors shut . I got stuck in the main bathroom as the latch stuck ...again causing fits of laughter . We thought the cottage quirky , cosy and did feel at home , the only reason we wouldn’t stay again was that I didn’t take into account as hubby complained not much of a view, he likes to see the sea and enjoys watching life going on around , so that’s my fault . I wouldnt hesitate in recommending S20720 to others though,although I do think on reflection the letting rate was a bit high, but there again it was tastefully furnished , with nice quality items but it’s sad that others did not treat it like home as the covers on the most comfortable lounge furniture were a bit dirty in places , we tried turning them over but they were worse the other side . Oh the beds were lovely to sleep on , with nice clean sheets so in all , we did have a nice stay ."

Jane - verified booking

"S20720 is pint-sized luxury accommodation in a distinctively charming location. Port Isaac is like some Italian fishing village reeking with allure.The listing says “dogs welcome”, but a more accurate descriptions would be “dogs welcome in kitchen”. The owners request that you keep any dogs contained to the kitchen and provide a baby gate to block of the rest of the property from them. Our dogs were not so happy to be exiled there during our stay (coincidentally, the command to punish my childhood dog was “Kitchen” which sent him off to his bed in the kitchen).The whole property is a bit squoze in. The second bedroom has a bed that is more of a one-and-half sized bed than a proper double bed. And even then it pretty much fills the room so completely that you can barely walk around it. The main bedroom is situated on the "top floor", aka converted attic crawl space. And crawl you do have to do most of the tie to get around it. It's 5’ 8” at the apex, but that means that most of the room is half that height. Still, my wife was pleased that I was forced to use the toilet sitting down.The property is beautifully decorated and maintained, and is located superbly in the heart of this great seaside destination, but be prepared for cozy accommodation at bedtime."
