Cottages in Cornwall for the School Summer Holidays

Take the family to Cornwall for the school summer holidays and stay in a beautiful family-friendly cottage. With a well-deserved break from work, school and the rhythm of everyday life, summer holidays are the perfect opportunity to catch up and spend quality time together. From country to coast, revel in Cornwall's glorious-ness this summer and stay in a private self-catering retreat. 

With the school summer holidays in reach, it's time to get into the holiday spirit and book yourself a self-catering retreat in Cornwall. Whether you would like a family getaway with the kids, group holiday with all the family or a catch up with friends, our cottages provide an idyllic base from which to explore all that Cornwall has to offer. Pack the sun cream, don the shorts and get ready for some tough decisions: short crust or flaky pastry? Classic vanilla ice cream or exotic salted caramel? Wetsuit or swimming costume? Well, swimming costume, obviously. 

When summer arrives in Cornwall, it is a county truly unlike any other. With crystal clear waters lapping golden sands, lush woodland overhanging meandering rivers and countryside dotted with an array of brightly coloured flowers and plants, every second is one to be enjoyed. And the cherry on the cake? When you've had your fill of exploring, you can return to your very own slice of heaven in a summer holiday cottage just for you.
