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: UKC217

    Approached down a quiet country lane, Talehay is a Grade II listed Cornish farmhouse which dates back some 300 years. The farmhouse and the detached stone cottages retain much of their original character and beauty, whilst providing tastefully furnished accommodation around a central courtyard. During the warm summer months, the lawned areas and spacious communal gardens that encompass the properties are ideal for picnics and barbecues. All cottages are supplied with their own seating area, and to the rear of the main house is a further 3½ acres of fully enclosed meadowland, so youngsters and their 4-legged friends can get a good run around.

    Set amidst delightfully unspoilt countryside, Talehay Cottages are situated a mile from the village of Pelynt and just 3 miles from the sea. Owing to its serene location, the cottages are ideal for guests wanting some peace and quiet on their holiday. It also makes a convenient base for exploring the many attractions Cornwall provides; its beaches, stately homes, famous gardens, coastal and inland walks, not to mention the world-renowned Eden Project.

    Characterised by busy fishing harbours, dramatic headlands and secluded sandy coves, Cornwall’s coastlines feature some of the most evocative, breath-taking scenery in Britain. For those wanting to escape the crowds, there are hidden gems scattered along Cornwall’s south-east coast, and if you know where to look, you can find empty golden beaches even in the height of the tourist season. Head to Lantivet or Lansallos, and Lantic Bay is regarded as one of Cornwall’s best kept secrets.

    There’s more dynamic terrain to be found further inland; Bodmin Moor possesses a stark ruggedness of its own, which has long drawn holiday goers up into the hills. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, The Cheesewring is a striking granite tor, Roughtor features a Neolithic tor enclosure, and Brown Willy (the highest point in Cornwall) enjoys vast unbroken views over moor and mire. Bodmin Moor is also famous for its Jamaica Inn, which was immortalised by Dauphne Du Maurier, and also used as the film location of the much-loved Poldark drama.

    From fine dining to quirky beach cafés, Cornwall is known as a prime foodie destination, with Rick Stein, Jamie Oliver, Nathan Outlaw and Paul Ainsworth among the many top chefs championing the county’s culinary field. Other attractions in the area include Cornwall’s finest country house Lanhydrock, the fine fortress built by Henry VIII Pendennis, the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, the Tate Gallery in St Ives, and for a completely unique theatre experience, head to Minack Theatre; an open-air theatre that sits atop the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. There’s also sailing, fishing, diving, golf and horse riding to be found locally, and with many country and coastal paths criss-crossing the region, Cornwall is a paradise for walkers and cyclists. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.
