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.

Cerys - verified booking

"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."

"The cottage made a good central point to visit the area. It was clean, nicely presented, and quite comfortable. The people around about were very friendly and welcoming. However, there were a few things that prevented the cottage from feel like that special place you would want to come back to. Delabole has a good pub, a Spar and a Fish and Chip shop, but otherwise perhaps isn't as charming as many of the surrounding villages. The drive is very tight, rough and quite difficult to turn into and shared with other houses. Parking is very limitted at the cottage and on the road. Outside the cottage looked a little untidy and un-cared for. The grass was very long and full of weeds making it difficult to use the outside space. Unfortunately inside the dishwasher was not working and during our stay the boiler broke down so we had no hot water, although that was fixed pretty quickly by the house manager, Ian. Basically, it did not feel as nice a place to stay as other cottages we have rented, although clearly the area around is very popular."

"Unfortunately first impressions let this property down. The holiday park itself is in need of tlc and is a little run down. The swimming pools were a bonus. Valley lodge could be greatly improved with a bit of care to the outside - fixing the lodge number for starters. When venturing in we found a few left over wrappers, sweets in a cupboard and a flannel from previous occupants. However the crockery was all clean as were the beds and the bathrooms. I was disappointed there was no soap within the property and luckily I’d brought my own washing up liquid. The master bed was rock hard and had the noisiest springs which didn’t make for a restful night. There was also no information whatsoever within the property regarding the site; such as swimming pool openings, or about the property - bins etc. Overall we had a good holiday and enjoyed our stay but first impressions were underwhelming and could easily be improved."

"The Lodge was in good shape generally - one or two small repairs required and some general maintenance. Well equipped and nicely clean. Good communication with the owner and general manager. Nice to have a running stream immediately outside.On the downside, the mattress on the double bed was of low quality and too hard. It was not a comfortable sleep and by the third night we were contemplating sleeping on the sofas. I have said 'yes' I would stay there again, but only if the mattress was replaced with a much improved version. The site was curious. It seemed to be a mixture of residential and holiday accommodation which dragged down the look. It all looked tired and in need of a good spruce up. The Lodge served our purpose for a short stay, and with a replaced double mattress we would return for other short trips that we need to make to that region."

"Goose Cottage was amazing! Pat and her Son Alastair were lovely people, very welcoming and friendly on arrival - nothing was too much trouble. The cottage itself was lovely and clean with all of the equipment we needed for our family holiday. The garden areas were lovely, Pat fed the animals each morning and the children (and adults) were able to join in the fun!The facilities on site were great - a lovely garden area with bench just outside the back door, the pool, the tennis court and a playground which the children in our group loved. Plenty of fields locally too so you could go for a walk in the day or evening if you wanted to and enjoy the views of the sunset. We'd highly recommend Goose Cottage and the other Cottages at Quinceborough Farm. We had relatives who stayed in another at the same time as us and they loved it too!"
