North Cornwall Cottages

With vast beaches and towering cliffs, well known hot spots and plenty of places off the beaten track, the north coast is a firm favourite when holidaying in Cornwall.Read more

Cornwall's backbone, a 50 mile stretch of coast with some of the world's finest beaches whether you are a surfer, a beachcomber or looking for a gastro extravaganza. The North Cornish coast has it all. But there are plenty of lesser-known delights here too, so take a step off the beaten track to discover another side of Cornwall's north coast.

North Cornwall holiday cottages are the ideal base for exploring any of the top surfing beaches, from Portreath up through St Agnes, Perranporth and Newquay, and on as far as Bude. The north coast also has several Cornish hotspots for food. Rick Stein’s restaurants have put Padstow and its sheltered harbour firmly on the map, whilst Jamie Oliver has brought an innovative menu to the spectacular beach at Watergate Bay.

The exposed coastline of north Cornwall has a wilder landscape with extreme topography such as the highest sheer-drop cliff in Cornwall between Boscastle and St Gennys. From the clifftops and coastal walks of Boscastle, to fishing villages like Port Isaac and then the wide flat expanses of the Hayle Estuary, there are holiday cottages in north Cornwall to suit all.
