Find yourself the perfect place for all the family with a holiday cottage in Cornwall that suits all ages. [Region] is the ultimate family holiday destination, consistently voted number one in many a UK family break survey. 

If you want to get away with the kids, [Region] has everything for a child friendly holiday; miles of beaches surround you on all sides, no matter where your base is located, but there's plenty of inland opportunities too, with moorlands and fields to explore as well as urban environments to get lost in.

Head to far west Cornwall to really get away and experience action-packed family holidays along the coast. With fishing villages, amazing coves and secret beaches, there's lots to explore. For younger or older family holidays, the south coast is calmer, with flat sandy beaches, shallow seas and lovely towns with child-friendly eateries on every corner. The north coast is a bit more up-market with clifftop walks for miles. East Cornwall is the land of fairy dust and magical moorlands.

Wherever you choose to call home for your holiday, this could be the best family holiday yet in one of our 546 holiday cottages that welcome children in Cornwall.
