Coastal cottages in South Cornwall are the perfect backdrop for a relaxed seaside holiday. Pretty little harbour towns and small flat sandy beaches make it a great place for multi generational holidays, with big attractions like The Eden Project providing days out of interest.

South Cornwall has a plethora of lovely holiday accommodation by the sea, from luxury coastal cottages up on the cliffs to bijoux beach cottages right on the shore, or stay a safe distance from the spray and book a holiday home with a view of the twinkling blue tempting you from across the fields.

Well known towns such as Looe, Mevagissey, St Mawes and Falmouth are popular places to stay, with quality cottages and lots of places to watch the waves from, as well as witnessing the comings and goings of various watercraft from harbours and marinas. There's a big sailing community around these parts, making the most of the big blue that you'll be admiring from the windows of one of our 147 holiday cottages by the sea.

Don't forget to bring the most excited member of the family - the walkies around these parts will really get the tail wagging so book into a dog friendly seaside holiday cottage.

Treat yourself and you could be waking up to the sound of the ocean from your South Cornwall cottage by the sea.
