South West Cornwall Cottages

Follow lackadaisical lanes from the most southerly part of England at Lizard Point to the wide open coastline of the north coast at Hayle, and enjoy everything in between.Read more

From the clutch of classic Cornish harbour villages at Porthleven, Mullion and Cadgwith that dot the south coast, to the dramatic dunes and sweeping sands of Gwithian in the north, south west Cornwall provides endless opportunities for exploring. This is superb self catering holiday cottage territory.

Lizard Point is the most southerly part of the British mainland, but Helston is its ‘gateway’, home to the unusual folk tradition of Flora Day, with its well-known ditty accompanying the Furry Dance played by the famous town band. To the west is Porthleven, a hamlet of fisherman’s cottages surrounding its harbour, and on the north coast is Hayle with its vast expanses of sandy beaches stretching across the towans.

Further up the northern coastline lies Portreath, a harbour town with a popular surfing beach. Self catering cottages in South West Cornwall encompass many different styles and are a good base for exploring the furthest reaches of the county. Immerse yourself in rich and vibrant traditions; there are plenty of relatively obscure villages throughout South West Cornwall waiting to be discovered.

We have 236 holiday cottages in south west Cornwall.
