Holiday Cottages in Cornwall

Our exclusive collection of Cornwall cottages range from coastal escapes to country houses, all handpicked and inspected by our team of local experts. Treat yourself to a hot tub retreat, bring every member of the family for a dog friendly break, plan a glamping holiday for two or a large family getaway. We have the best collection of holiday cottages in Cornwall and go the extra mile to make sure your holiday in Cornwall is as special as this beautiful county.

Holidays in Cornwall are what childhood memories are made of; Cornish beaches for bucket and spade holidays, miles of moor for walking holidays and an altogether more relaxed way of life that make Cornwall holidays stay in your memories forever. It’s no wonder Cornwall has won the Best UK Holiday County for so many consecutive years.

Find a Holiday cottage in Cornwall with stunning sea views Explore the Cornish coast path

Stay in Cornwall’s cottages on the south coast for the safe, family-friendly beaches around Mevagissey or Looe, explore the lunar-esque landscapes of china clay pits around the Eden Project and learn about the county’s industrial past. Travel down to the Roseland peninsula for rolling countryside, pretty villages lined with Cornish cottages, quiet spots to sit and ponder the view. Continue south to the Lizard peninsula for treasure troves of hidden coves dotted with fishermen’s cottages reflecting in turquoise seas. Head around the headland up past Porthleven (you’ll recognise it from the storm watching photos) to Mount’s Bay, where majestic St Michael’s Mount looms over the town of Marazion and Penzance further along. 

The panorama of aquamarine seas around Sennen, Porthcurno and St Ives is interspersed with its mining heritage, chimneys clinging to every cliff top and tiny streets crammed with the cottages Cornwall is known for. Travel the north coast, spreading out from the centres of Newquay and Bude where every beach is bustling with surfers and every other water craft you can imagine. If you're not a water baby, head inland for landscapes that are out of this world. Sit atop a tor on Bodmin Moor and survey the 360 panorama over Bodmin round to Camelford, over to Launceston and down to Liskeard.

This most westerly county of England even has its own language, with quirky place names and signpost translations. Along with a very mild climate you could be forgiven for thinking you weren’t in England.
