Find cottages in CornwallVisit 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.

This very spacious, detached property, converted from a 200-year-old barn, with grain silos 8 yards (toddlers beware!) occupies a peaceful setting on the owners’ 850-acre working arable farm and pheasant shooting estate. Very attractively furnished and well equipped, it boasts eight en-suite bedrooms (all with colour TVs), two sitting-rooms, a games room with open fire and pool table, and its own garden with children’s play area – making it the ideal choice for three or four families wishing to holiday together. Clay pigeon shooting is available by arrangement, with fishing on site (permit required). The farm is centrally located in the beautiful Camel Valley – a haven for nature lovers and fishermen, cyclists and riding enthusiasts, close to the wild expanse of Bodmin Moor.
An ideal base from which to tour, The Shooting Lodge is convenient for the North and South Heritage Coasts of Cornwall, where to the north, the picturesque fishing villages of Port Isaac and Boscastle, and the old port of Padstow are within easy reach. To the south is the harbour town of Fowey, and the charming villages of Looe and Polperro, each with narrow, winding streets full of fisherman’s cottages and intriguing tales concerning their smuggling past. Partly isolated from the rest of the country, until the railway crossed the River Tamar in the 1860s, this region has retained a wealth of antiquities. For historic days out, St Breock Downs Monolith and the Nine Maidens, Pencarrow House and Restormel Castle, and Lanhydrock (NT), with its 450-acre grounds, are nearby. Whilst a little further afield, scholars of myths and legends will find enigmatic Tintagel Castle – said to be the birthplace of King Arthur, a mystical delight. Ancient Wadebridge (4 miles) offers a sports centre, swimming-pool and tennis. Shop 1½ miles, pub 3 miles.

Col Ros Ref: GB2

Commanding a peaceful and idyllic cliff-top position with panoramic sea views, this spacious and well-equipped house stands in its own large gardens. Set at the end of a 1/2-mile unmade lane, it enjoys views over the Atlantic and across Mounts Bay towards Penzance, and footpaths lead from just outside the garden gate down to Polurrian Cove , a quiet and secluded haven with good surfing. Other coves are just a short walk along a dramatic cliff-top – Mullion, with its granite-walled harbour and Poldhu, scene of Marconi’s first transatlantic cable message.
Col Ros is ideally situated for exploring the west of the county, with the Lizard Peninsula, Penzance, Falmouth and Truro all within easy access. The Lizard (5 miles), with its craggy cliff scenery to the west and wooded vales to the east, is a mecca for walkers, surfers and divers. Penzance (21 miles) is an ideal centre for touring Land’s End and boasts the National Lighthouse Centre and Cornwall’s only promenade. More local attractions include the Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose, famous for its air-sea rescue helicopters, and Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station, 4 miles inland. Helston (6 miles) is an ancient market town built on two hills. In early May each year there is the world-famous festival, ‘Flora Day’, with its colourful ‘Furry Dance’, in which long lines of people with hands joined make their way through the flower-lined streets. Helston has Flambards theme park, with a reconstructed Victorian village, ‘Britain In The Blitz’ street with wartime aircraft, rollercoaster rides, award-winning gardens and adventure playgrounds. Mullion has pubs serving food, or a short drive of 6 miles leads to Halzephron Cliff with its inn above Gunwalloe Church Cove – a 500-year-old smugglers’ haunt with lovely views, and recommended by the Good Pub Guide and Egon Ronay Guide.

"Character cottages in a countryside setting, ideal for an activity-filled family holiday.."

In glorious Cornish countryside on the edge of the pretty village of Tresmeer, just 6 miles from Launceston, the ancient capital of Cornwall, and 10 miles from the stunning North Cornish Coast, Higher Churchtown Farm offers the ideal holiday location for friends and family to escape and unwind or as a wedding venue as the owners have been granted a licence to conduct weddings on site.
Set beside the historic village church and with glorious views reaching to Dartmoor, these four delightful converted barns are very spacious and beautifully presented with oak furniture, underfloor heating on the ground floors and heated towel rails in most of the bathrooms. They retain much of their original charm with vaulted ceilings, exposed stone walls and beams. Kettle’s On is a detached single-storey barn with its own rear garden; each of the others has its own small patio and all enjoy shared use of a large garden area with 18ft circular above-ground swimming pool (summer only) and an additional ½-acre games field which provides a great place for children to play. For amusement indoors, a selection of reading material is also provided, together with games, puzzles, DVDs and a 42in television. The largest of the barns also has its own games room with pool table, darts and board games. A local artist displays her work in the barns of scenes around Cornwall, which can be purchased and taken home as a memento. Lambing also takes place on the farm during the first few months of the year up to the beginning of April.
Whether surfing, walking the coastal path, playing golf, fishing or simply relaxing this stunning location has something for everyone. Riding, cycling and walking trails are in abundance including a lovely riverside walk from the barns across the owners’ farmland. This really is a superb holiday choice for friends, families or when booked as a whole for a celebration gathering. Launceston has a good selection of local shops, town amenities, and restaurants.
Family attractions include Trethorne Leisure Park and Golf Club, Harlequins Bude, Crealy Adventure Park, Newquay Zoo and the Blue Reef Aquarium. Ideally situated to visit the North Cornwall coastal resorts of Tintagel, Boscastle, Port Isaac and Padstow. For a great day out, enjoy the famous Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

Provender House Ref: TBZ

Set amidst a wooded valley with a tranquil stream running alongside it, Provender House is the quintessential detached country house, the original mill stone now forms the doorstep and the pretty garden is edged by the stream. A short walk through woods to the beach is highly recommended. The pretty village of Veryan, which sits on the edge of the Roseland Peninsula is minutes away and offers a wonderful local pub serving local ales and food, a gallery and a shop. Along the peninsula visitors can find many beaches including Pendower and Carne, considered to be amongst the prettiest in Cornwall. There are also fishing villages with the day’s catch which guests can buy for that special meal or simple barbecue on the beach. The area is renowned for its beauty and dramatic coastline which provides hours of walking with stunning views across the open sea or inland across rolling fields. There is horse riding, golf and cycling within easy reach of the village. Further afield is Fowey, Truro, Padstow, St Ives and Falmouth which can be reached by passenger ferry from nearby St Mawes. The Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan are easily reached and both well worth a visit. Truro has a theatre, cinema, a museum, plentiful local restaurants and excellent shopping. Falmouth has the historic docks and is home to the National Maritime Museum, with many hands-on exhibits for children of all ages. Pleasure cruises around this picturesque bay can be enjoyed, as can kayaking, river trips to Truro or simply meander the narrow streets. There are many cycle trails in the area many of which are linked and are mainly off road. Cycle hire centres are available and it is possible to cross the county by bike, or cycle through the Cornish industrial heritage sights and marvel at the ancient tin mines. The beaches of the peninsula and Cornwall are second to none and provide the ultimate day out for little cost. Rock pooling, crabbing and fishing as well as lazing on the fine white sand are all recommended. Shops and pub ¾ mile.
