South Cornwall Cottages

Softer, calmer, more Mediterranean than its north coast sister, Cornwall's south coast cajoles Cornish rivers into a warmer sea.Read more

Head inland for a visit to the awe-inspiring Eden Project, or relax on the coast; the ancient creeks and sheltered coves around Falmouth and Fowey are a playground for sailors. The up and coming eco hotspot of the south west, with the Eden Project and proposed eco villages of St Austell, there are plenty of green holiday cottages in south Cornwall. See our complete guide to South Cornwall.

A self catering holiday is best taken between Falmouth and the Tamar Estuary, along the ‘Cornish Riviera’ where waterside restaurants and coastal pubs abound, plus there is plenty of sight-seeing to be had inland at the Cathedral City of Truro or whilst exploring the history of Lostwithiel.

Cross the harbour at Falmouth to the sailing waters of St Mawes on the Roseland peninsula, along this picturesque coastline of broad estuaries, to the tall ships of Mevagissey, the safe anchorage of Fowey at its estuary mouth and the fishing port of Looe, which all lead up to the Rame peninsula. Home to Freathy Cliff, the Antony Estate and Mount Edgcumbe, Torpoint, and Kingsand looking out towards Plymouth Sound, there is more than enough for a holiday.

We have 283 self catering cottages in south Cornwall.
