Holiday cottages by a beach in Cornwall

Nothing says summer more than warm sand between your toes and turquoise waters lapping onto golden beaches. Stay in a holiday cottage by a Cornwall beach for some of Britain’s best.

Throw open the window and breathe in that fresh salty air - you're definitely on holiday when you can smell the sea! Have breakfast by the beach, spend all day on the beach or just gaze at the beach from the comfort of your holiday cottage. Nothing beats being by the sea.

If you're on holiday with children, staying by a beach means non-stop excitement and entertainment; sandcastle-building, wave-jumping, rockpool-searching, never-ending fun. If it's a more grown up affair, soak up the sun and refresh in the sea, find yourself a private cove and have yourself beachside holiday in a home-from-home.

We have 377 self catering cottages by a beach in Cornwall.
