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.
