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.
