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.

A short walk from the NT beauty spot of Mullion Cove and close to adjacent sandy coves, this lovely stone Cornish holiday cottage stands peacefully in a sunny sheltered garden. The garden features a revolving cedar wood summerhouse (an ideal hide for bird-watchers), which is set between a lily pond and stream and there is an octagonal gazebo cum brick barbecue area. A cosy property with full central heating and gas stove. Wrapped up for the night in the summerhouse, sensible older children will be enthralled to watch badgers and foxes spending long hours digging for worms in the grass.
Located on the Lizard Peninsula, Mullion is Cornwall’s biggest village and is situated just a mile from the coast, where Mullion Cove lies with its unusual rock sculptures and small beach. Marking the spot where the first transatlantic radio transmission was made in 1901, the Marconi Monument can be seen at the cliff’s edge. Nearby Kynance Cove (the peninsula’s best known beach) is characterised by impressive cliffs, offshore islands and displays stacks and arches of serpentine rock. With surfers, the beaches at Polurrian and Poldhu prove popular, whilst sandy beaches can be found at Church and Dollar coves. Five miles north of the cottage is the stannary town of Helston, where tin ore was once extracted and sent to the port at Porthleven. Held each May, the well-known Floral Dance is performed here – men in top hats and women in summer dresses taking to the streets to re-enact a somewhat strange dance, which lasts for the greater part of the day. Younger family members will enjoy the theme park also found there, and the network of quiet country lanes connecting the inland villages with those on the coast provide a good way to explore the area, with cycle hire available at Helston. Just over half an hour’s drive away are Truro, Penzance, Falmouth, Redruth and St Ives. Golf, riding and pleasant coastal walks all found locally. Shops 400 yards, pub close by.
