A county of elemental beauty, cottages by the sea in Cornwall put you face to face with its most impressive feature: the mercurial ocean.

Quaint villages such as Mousehole and Portloe attest to the sea’s influence on the county’s bygone inhabitants; the bustling ports of Falmouth and Penzance to its continuing importance to the county’s vitality.

Start your own family’s love-affair with the county in one of our holiday cottages in Cornwall by the sea. Family friendly adventures begin on one of the county’s many stunning sandy beaches: try Perranporth, Carbis Bay or Sennen Cove

Strike out to the wild and wind-swept Lizard Peninsula and Lands’ End: the country’s most southerly and westerly points, respectively. If you’re looking for a splash of rest and relaxation, chill with a glass of something cold in a bar with a sea view in sophisticated Rock or popular Newquay.

If wildlife’s your thing, Cornwall has it all. Spot dolphins from not only boats or beach cafes, but even your own seaside cottage. Try Watergate Bay or Fistral Beach in the summer months. Hosts of rare breed maritime birds make the coastal estuaries and cliffs their home: along most stretches of the South West Coast Path you are given prime access to their seaside sanctuaries.

Whatever your coastal passion, a self-catering holiday by the sea in Cornwall means sunsets over the water; the chance to witness the elements at work and the opportunity to indulge in the bounty of the seaside: surf, sand, sun and fun!
