Find cottages in 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.

    Ref: NT011089

    National Trust Property

    A most beautiful National Trust estate, set on the banks of the River Tamar, Cotehele was the ancestral home to the Edgcumbe family for centuries. This magnificent Tudor house, perched high above the River Tamar, is decorated with tapestries, arms and armour, pewter, brass and old oak furniture. In the gardens and grounds of Cotehele, you can easily lose yourself exploring this most tranquil and beautiful location. Admire the stunning, formally planted terraces of gorgeous, colourful plants, or wander down to the Valley Garden, which includes a medieval stewpond and dovecote, which in turn leads down to the River Tamar. Sit a while and seek tranquillity in the beautiful Upper Garden and explore the orchards planted with local varieties of apples and cherry trees.

    From early spring, bright flowers adorn the grounds and the colourful herbaceous borders are simply stunning in high season. With orchards bearing fruit in the autumn and dainty snowdrops peeking through in winter, there will be horticultural activity all year round. This very popular National Trust property appeals to people of all ages, but Cotehele will be available to guests in early mornings and after the day visitors have gone home.

    In the 19th century, local industries boomed and Cotehele Quay bustled with vessels loading and unloading cargo. Paddle steamers came upriver to see the Tamar Valley’s famous blossoming orchards, and small boats carried market-gardening produce back down the river for sale at Devonport Market. The restored sailing barge Shamrock is moored at the quay and a proper Cornish cream tea can be enjoyed in the Edgcumbe tea room. The Discovery Centre here tells the story of the Tamar Valley, offering a gateway to the wider estate and is just a short walk through the Morden Valley to the sister property Cotehele Mill. Cotehele welcome dogs and there are some great walks on the miles of paths around the estate, at the quay and in the mill grounds. Dogs are also welcome in the outside seating area of the restaurants. Assistance dogs only are welcome in the house and garden.
    In the heart of the lovely wooded seclusion of the Morden Valley, Mill Cottage is an attractive semi-detached cottage, part of the stylish gabled house with tall brick chimneys that was built in the 1860s for the miller at Cotehele. With abundant wildlife all around, the views from the latticed windows of the cottage are across a flower-rich meadow to the stream and woods beyond. The cottage has its own small, enclosed garden. In the mill building opposite, you can watch the mill in action twice a week throughout the season, and its excellent stone-ground flour is available to buy: it will make you want to bake! Beach 16 miles. Shop 5½ miles, pub and restaurant 2½ miles.

    Step to entrance. Cosy open-plan living room with open fire, garden views, dining area and compact kitchen with stable door to front yard. First floor: Double bedroom. Single bedroom. Bathroom with over-bath shower and toilet.
