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.

What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Cornwall To Rent.

SUSAN - verified booking

"What an amazing week we had in Cornwall. We stay in cottages regular and 'Skyber' was the best cottage we have stayed in. We were extremely grateful for the Cornish Ground Coffee, Cornish Biscuits, Cornish Teabags, Milk, Bottle of Red Wine and the stunning Hand Tied Fresh Flowers that were left in the cottage for us from the owners. There was everything in the cottage that we required including lovely fluffy white towels and an enormous bed that was so comfortable. We had our 2 teenagers with us and they each had a comfortable bed too with curtains that seperated them off for privacy. There was a fabulous whirlpool bath which was much needed after a long tiring day exploring Cornwall. Everything in the cottage was SPOTLESS clean. Fresh eggs were available to buy every day as was meat from the farm.There was a communal 'utility' where there was a washer, tumble dryer, ironing board, iron and lots of DVD's that could be used.We had our small dog with us and there was even a 'doggie' basket with freshly laundered throws in as well as some treats.EVERYTHING in this cottage has been well thought of. It was like home from home.The owners were extremely friendly and welcoming and very approachable.In Cornwall we visited lots of beautiful places including Padstow, Mousehole, Lands End, Holywell Bay (we can recommend the School of Surf there), The Eden Project (go early to avoid queues) and so much more. The beaches are fabulous for surfing and body boarding which our two kids loved. We visited The Cracking Crab in Polzeath which does amazing Fruits de Mer. Launceston has a lovely little town which has a large Co-Op and various takeaway restaurants, lots of Chinese restaurants as well as Indian's and Fish and Chip restaurants.We would most definitely recommend Skyber and would certainly return to this cottage if we were to visit Cornwall again."

"As the cottage is located in a small cul-de-sac, it feels private and quiet and there is parking for two cars. The cottage is only a couple of years old, so is very modern, with the rooms being of a good size and very light. The kitchen has everything you could need including separate fridge and freezer and dishwasher. The bathroom has a good double shower (over bath) and the enclosed garden has a gas barbecue and garden furniture on the decking for warmer days. We found milk, biscuits, tea bags, coffee and sugar waiting for us, which was really helpful. There is a village pub, only a couple of minutes walk away, along with a small shop (open every day), butchers and chip shop (Tuesday to Sunday Evenings) and where is a good feel to the village and the people seem friendly. We took our collie, but we could only find one grass area, to walk him in the village, as there is a small children's playing area in a side street only about a five minute walk from the cottage (this was useful early morning and late evenings). But we were able to take our dog on Par Beach (you need to pay for parking) and there is a wetlands park (with duck pond and grass area), within 10 minutes drive.The location of S40061 is really good if you wish to visit Fowey, Mevagissey, Charlestown Bodmin or the eden project as they are all within 40 minutes drive away. There are large supermarkets in Bodmin and St Austell, if you need them. We only had one issue, during our stay - as we found that the wifi never had enough signal and the TV would go funny at times, so we missed parts of TV programmes. But on the plus side, we had no problems using our mobile phones, while we were in the cottage and this is normally an issue in Cornwall."

"It could be fantastic with a few adjustments. In both the twin rooms upstairs only 1 of the skylights had working blinds. And the windows that did have blinds, the blinds were light coloured so didn’t really do anything to keep the light out. My children were up with the sun every morning and so were we. I booked the cottage on the premise that there was WiFi available. It was definitely one of the main criteria when we were looking for accommodation. We have small children who go to bed early and we wanted to watch films on the computer. Also, they like to relax with their kindles after a busy day exploring. Unfortunately, there was no WiFi available in Goose Cottage. I really feel that this cottage cannot be advertised as WiFi enabled and feel quite angry that it is not as advertised. We asked the vendors and were told they had someone coming Monday. There was still no WiFi when we left. On the other hand, my children thoroughly enjoyed feeding the animals everyday and the owner was lovely with the children. Very patient with the thousand questions asked. I feel quite bad with the low scores as most things were great, but our main criteria wasn’t sufficiently met."

"Overall we loved Thurlibeer. It’s in a great location, close to Bude and a couple of supermarkets for supplies. It’s also within easy reach of other beaches and more of Cornwall. There is a large grassy area for outdoor games and relaxation with the most amazing view towards Widemouth Bay and open countryside. We were a large group of 16 including young children. There were a few minor issues; all kitchen knives were blunt and a sharpener would have helped at meal times as would a measuring jug; we did eventually find some kitchen scales on the last day tucked away out of sight. A couple of the lounge seats had missing slats. The description of a “games room” is a stretch....it is in a dark and dingy basement with a table tennis table in a poor state and the ceiling is right on your head if you are 6ft, we didn’t use it. Final comment relates to the exit; it’s on the main road with fast traffic so you have to be really careful coming out as you have to stretch your neck to see if the way is clear. It’s really a concealed entrance and needs one of those mirrors to check for oncoming traffic, as it is it’s potentially a hazard."

"We had a wonderful short break at Skyber, which is the first floor of a beautiful converted barn located in a very tranquil setting and literally five minutes off the A30, which makes access to Cornwall and West Devon so easy. The apartment is airy, very spacious and wonderfully light, with all the amenities expected of a premier property. The hosts were most warm and welcoming, and the complimentary bottle of wine, coffee, tea and biscuits on arrival were an added bonus! The apartment easily caters for a family of four, with a really comfortable large double bed and two singles. The bathroom was well appointed with bath and shower and there was always plenty of hot water. The property was very clean and tidy and there is a wood burner in the middle of the living area, which would make the whole place feel incredibly snug in the winter. Outside there is plenty of parking, a private terrace for sundowners, and various walks across the fields to enjoy. We would definitely stay at Skyber again and I would thoroughly recommend it."
