Holiday Cottages in Cornwall

Cornwall’s a place that makes loving the UK, far too easy. Opal blue waters lap against 250 miles of gloriously diverse coast. Silken beaches stretch into rugged south-west cliffs, where the homes of rich and wonderful wildlife hide. Below the rocks, lie smugglers coves, and hundreds of years of seabound secrets.

Whether you’re looking to lounge on the sandy beaches, explore the wild rocks above, or head inland for a world of tourist attractions, fabulous food and incredible culture, Cornwall is an astonishing place to be.

Why plan breaks in the South West of England?

Why have your holidays in Cornwall? The short answer is, why not? This luxury south-west location serves up any and all kinds of holidays. It’s one of the only destinations in England where you can lounge on the coast, beside a stunning sea view, but still be barely a minute walk from rich woodland, cultural hotspots, and even wild nightlife..

More award-winning beaches than anywhere in the UK

Cornwall is home to a whopping 300 beaches, almost every one a tropical paradise, ready to give the Bahamas a run for its money. It boasts more award-winning sandy stretches than anywhere else in England, and one in 10 of the UK’s ‘Blue Flag’ beaches (an award given to beaches that are impeccably maintained and faultlessly beautiful).

Kynance Cove and The Lizard is an unmissable spot

While it would be impossible to say one of Cornwall’s many sandy gems was the best on the South West coast, Kynance Cove on the Lizard Peninsula is a strong contender. Sparkling green moss rises from rich cerulean waters, while the tide laps against the astonishingly white sand. At sunset, the day’s last light bounces across the rugged cliffs of the south west path, bathing the scene in a rich, warming orange, that words can’t quite capture.

The perfect place to plan your holidays

We don’t just want your holidays in Cornwall to be incredible. We want to turn the south-west of England into your new home from home. Even for short breaks, we’ll make sure your cornish cottages deliver everything you desire. To start, we won’t just find you your ideal holiday home; we’ll make sure your breaks take place in the part of Cornwall that’s perfect for you.

North Cornwall is a surfer’s paradise

We all know Cornwall is probably the most popular location in England for surfing holidays. But, when it comes to choosing which part of the south-west to start shredding some waves, the north coast and Newquay is definitely where to head. Newquay is home to Fistral and Watergate Bay; two of Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches and the hub of the south-west surfing scene.

Here, waves coming from the Atlantic Ocean make it an excellent destination for beginners and show-offs alike. Not to mention, North Cornwall is also home to Britain’s best surfing festivals. The most famous, Boardmasters, features four full days of live music, skateboarding and surfing, in and around Newquay.

South Cornwall boasts top tourist attractions

South Cornwall is the ideal holiday destination for tourists with a check-list. Home to many of Cornwall’s most famous attractions, head to Falmouth and check out Pendennis Castle. Here, you can watch some of the best medieval battle reenactments in England, and take a stroll through 450 years of riveting history, back to the times of Henry VIII..

Of course, no list of Cornwall’s top attractions would be complete without mentioning the Eden Project; a place so famous, it’s worth visiting just to say you have. While its fame precedes it, don’t think for a minute that this beautiful biome won’t live up to its reputation. Named after the biblical garden, wandering through paradise is precisely what visiting this indoor rainforest brings to mind.

West Cornwall is for class and culture

West Cornwall is home to many of Cornwall’s most spectacular spots. It boasts the Lizard Peninsula, the part of the UK to most frequently make the list of ‘best beaches in the world’. It’s home to Land’s End, the gorgeous Minack Theatre, and Cornwall’s best seal sanctuary, a must-visit destination for anyone looking to make some unforgettable memories.

But West Cornwall and St Ives is also where culture vultures flock. With one of the best art scenes in England, St Ives boasts almost all of Cornwall’s must-visit galleries. Not to mention, a superb selection of luxury beaches and bustling high streets. Kick off an artistic tour at Tate St Ives. Sat on the coast, in a location beautiful enough to rival the art inside, the world-famous gallery has a rotating display of the best modern art Britain has to offer.

There’s so much more to see in the South West

We’ve barely scratched the surface of what the south-west has to offer. From national trust attractions to adrenaline-pumping watersports to pasty-making workshops; it doesn’t matter who you are or what you’re looking for - Cornwall is the place to be.

Not to mention, it’s home to maybe the most incredible coast in England. Wherever you base your Cornwall breaks, you’ll be driving distance from at least one beautiful beach, and a cracking coast view that’ll make snapping perfect pics almost too easy.

Types of holiday cottage in Cornwall

No two holidays in Cornwall are the same, and rightly so! From north to south, east to west, St Ives to Newquay, this luxury location is home to a world of incredible cottages and unforgettable breaks, ready to fulfil your wildest holiday desires. From barn conversions to log cabins, Cornwall’s got it all.

Want your four-legged friend to join the fun? Have a look at Cornwall’s dog-friendly cottages. Fancy living the high life? Choose from an incredible collection of luxury or extra-large holiday homes, or perhaps peruse properties with a pool or a decedent hot tub. If you do love to be beside the seaside, check out cottages on the coast, or maybe beside the beach.

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

David - verified booking

"Kettles On a lovely remote bungalow type cottage. Yvonne the owner was a lovely person who dropped us off to pick up the car when we left it at the nearest pub the previous night. Nearest pub was over 4 miles away. Which if you want a quiet holiday would be ideal. However if you would like a livelier holiday the cottage might be a bit remote. The cottage itseself was a spacious two bedroomed cottage with underfloor heating throughout. It was kept very clean. We arrived and there was high teas (scones, jam And cream) waiting for us and a fresh bowl of fruit. Very nice touch. The cottage had everything required for a good relaxing stay. It was situated centrally for you if you wanted to discover the surrounding Cornish area. We had an excellent stay and seen a lot of the sights you would expect to see and the cottage was a good base for this.."

Steve - verified booking

"Stated that we wouldn’t stay here again -the distance from our home was a problem which obviously is our problem not yours.The main reason was that I’d booked a house with Superfast Broadband as I knew my son needed to work while his family were with us. The internet was not good at all, it kept stopping and this meant in the end that my son and family had to leave on the Tuesday evening, which upset the grandchildren and us.The house was nice and clean with good beds, bedding, towels etc and plenty of crockery and kitchen equipment but the sofas in the lounge were not comfortable, very short in depth and length and not enough seating for 8 of us in the evening when we were all together."

Richard - verified booking

"This is clearly a holiday accommodation that was created some 30 years ago and whilst perfectly clean and tidy is quite dated and minimally furnished with few homely features. The kitchen equipment provided is not really sufficient for six people if you want to cook in. The cooker is very small and pots and pans are few. The setting is delightful with a safe and secure outside area for children to play. We enjoyed our time in Ash but feel the owners need to think about updating a few things to bring it up to date."

Penny - verified booking

"Thoroughly enjoyed staying at Saffron. Having four bathrooms was ideal and also the downstairs bedroom was very useful as one of our party was disabled. It is ideally situated for The Eden Project and Heligon. Mevagissey and Charlestown are within easy reach and Bodmin is worth a visit. We would certainly recommend Saffron to friends and family. Charmaine had left us a Saffron cake and scones and cream which was much appreciated."

Greg - verified booking

"Fantastic house to stay in with the family. Kingsize beds are very comfortable. The fridge in the kitchen really needs repairing/replacing, this is the 2nd year we have stayed here and the fridge is still broken and not holding temperature which isnt great considering the price we have paid. Its a great home from home and ideally situated in a nice quiet village close to Bude. Bathrooms seem rather dated now but are adequate."
