Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


Ideal for a small family or group of friends, this delightful barn conversion will provide all your needs for an enjoyable stay in Cornwall.

Blackthorn Cottage is a delightful, spacious, cosy and comfortable, single-storey barn conversion with high ceilings, sky lights and solid wood floors, and is perfect for a relaxing holiday.

This is a peaceful location with easy access to miles of coastal paths and some of Cornwall’s most beautiful beaches including Swan Pool Beach, the beautiful sheltered beach at Maenporth cove and Gyllingvase white sandy beach with crystal clear waters. There are beach cafes, restaurants and fish restaurants, and water sports are available on many of the beaches.

The main bustling town and harbours of Falmouth is just minutes away, with its prestigious marinas attracting some of the world’s leading racing yachts and ocean going vessels. The port of Falmouth is the third deepest natural harbour in the world. The town has an excellent choice of restaurants, bistros, tea rooms, cafés and pubs. Events Square is home to the National Maritime Museum with various events throughout the year, including the lively Sea Shanty week, Oyster Festival and food and music festivals.

Falmouth has a multi screen cinema, theatre, bowling, golf course and cycle hire with a number of old tram line cycle trails running from the south coast across to the north coast.
Take the train from Falmouth to the cathedral city of Truro to experience great shops, markets, cinema and theatre with a great selection of restaurants and pubs serving great food.

Water taxis will take you across the estuary to St Mawes and the riverside village of Flushing, or take one of the local boats to explore the beautiful River Helford and creeks. Enjoy a thrilling Sea Safari to watch dolphins, basking sharks, seals and much more.

Visit the beautiful sub tropical gardens at Trebah, Glendurgan and Trelissick, or discover many National Trust and English Heritage properties including Pendennis Castle with its twin St Mawes Castle across the estuary.

The area is perfect for exploring south Cornwall, the stunning coves and pretty villages on the Lizard Peninsula, and the rugged north coast, popular with surfers. Shops and pub 2 miles, restaurant 1 mile.

    Disappointed to find cottage semi detached and part of a complex of several holiday properties accessed via long single track lane as this was not mentioned in the description.

    Loved this cottage and would definitely stay again. It was very clean and had all amenities. Can't not recommend it enough

    This cottage is in a great location for local beaches. Although it is a dog friendly property, I am pleased to say it does not smell doggy and is basicly very clean. My overall rating is not 10 stars only because the master bedroom would have benefited from a better quality more supportive mattress and a kingsize bed. The room is of generous proportions and would easily take a bigger sized bed. A minor point also to make is that the pillows could have been of better quality. We have stayed in several other rental properties from this website of this rating so feel able to make comparisons. The garden area is of good size but has no outlook other than 6 ft high fencing. On the plus side, the kitchen is very well equipped, the area adjacent to the property is very pretty and peaceful and there is ample parking at the front and rear of the property. And the local beaches are fabulous! What more can I say!
