Whether you're looking for a catch up with your friends or are looking forward to bringing the family together for a well-deserved break, our cottages in Cornwall provide an idyllic escape from the chaos of everyday life.

The coast paths, beaches and towns remain quieter ahead of the summer crowds, and longer daylight hours mean days can be taken full advantage of.
