Cornwall

The county of Cornwall has been attracting holidaymakers for decades and is without doubt one of the UK’s most loved holiday destinations, with its rich abundance of natural assets; beautiful beaches, dramatic sea cliffs, pretty fishing harbours and winding country lanes.

Cornwall’s unique charm and its stunning countryside and coastal landscapes are easy to access in this compact corner of south west England and you won’t have to travel far from your Cornish cottage to find it!

A host of top quality visitor attractions and holiday activities await you and here you’ll also find a fine selection of Cornish cottages, suitable for families and couples alike. But before you start packing your bags you might like a few suggestions for things to see and places to go on your break.

The Eden Project is undeniably one of the most popular attractions in Cornwall. This all-weather oasis offers a wealth of stunning flora in an amazing collection of ‘biomes’. Or, if you fancy getting out in the open-air then a visit to the Lost Gardens of Heligan is a must.

Padstow is highly recommended for those seeking the fine Cornish cuisine. This lovely coastal town offers an endearing sense of community and, thanks to the involvement of Rick Stein, several fantastic eateries.

For a unique occasion why not take in a play at the Minack Theatre, one of the world’s most spectacular open-air venues perched on the cliff side facing the sea. Similarly, St Ives celebrates a rich and varied artistic heritage through its Tate Gallery, the Barbara Hepworth Sculpture Garden and much more.

With Cornwall’s temperate climate its beaches are perhaps one of the biggest attractions; a spectacular coastline extends for mile after mile and whether you want to surf, swim, stroll or just relax, you won’t be short of fantastic activities and great seaside locations.

With an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty that covers 12 separate geographical areas, walking in Cornwall is a delight. Enjoy the beautiful moorland and towering tors of Bodmin Moor, take a cycle ride down the Camel Trail or gaze out from Rame Head; there’s a wealth of wonderful choices.

Alternatively you may prefer to relax and enjoy the comfort offered by a holiday cottage in Cornwall. So start a search for your dream holiday home right now.

    From the tip of the St Anthony’s headland, there is direct access to the South West Coastal Path, and the views across to Falmouth and St Mawes are breathtaking. The National Trust purchased the headland during the 1950s and converted many of the former military buildings. Holidaymakers can now enjoy this beautiful part of Cornwall whilst staying at stylish accommodation which is rich in heritage. Tiffy’s (so named as it was originally the artificer’s workshop, ref NT011069) and The Major’s Quarter (ref NT011064) are both all on one level and offer comfortable accommodation.

    The area is rich in history and attractions. In summer, the ferry can be taken across to the sailing town of St Mawes with its superb selection of restaurants, cafés and local art galleries and shops. The walk to the castle on the point is well worth the effort to watch the ships and boats coming and going from Falmouth across the water. Kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and sailing can all be booked in the town.

    Molunan is a small beach close to the property. There is also a bird hide nearby to enable viewing of abundant sea birds; alternatively just relax on the beach or take the opportunity to go crabbing amongst the rock pools.
