North Cornwall, from the highest cliffs in the West Country around Morwenstow to the Penwith peninsula and the ‘end of England’, has a stunningly diverse landscape which means Cornwall holiday cottages there are just right for families as well as those seeking activity and exhilaration.
You’ll find holiday cottages overlooking great, golden expanses of sand/surf beaches such as Widemouth Bay and Crackington Haven, and self-catering cottages sheltered in pretty Cornwall fishing villages, such as Mousehole and St Ives. For the adventurous, holiday cottages in Cornwall offer the thrills of watersports (Rock, Watergate Bay), fine golf (St Enodoc) and scenic cycling (the Camel Trail).
And the delight of self-catering holidays in Cornwall is being able to return to comfy holiday cottages, rinse away the sand in a hot shower and perhaps enjoy a barbecue in the peace of your own garden. Or, when you fancy a treat, take advantage of the many award-winning restaurants which are often within a short stroll of our holiday cottages in Cornwall and dine out at places such as Rick Stein’s seafood venues in Padstow or Jamie Oliver’s ‘Fifteen’ at Watergate Bay.
Cornwall holiday cottages are perfect bases from which to explore the area, which is a wild land but one which has been inhabited since long, long ago. Granite-topped hills and small fields sprinkled with sheep slope down to spectacularly rocky headlands from which you gaze down into deep azure sea; tall chimneys of extinct tin mining tower romantically over Bronze Age hut circles and Iron Age villages - wonderful memories to take home from holiday cottages in Cornwall. And you can leave the car at your holiday cottage - the South West coast path hugs the shore, inviting you to dust off your walking boots and stride out. We offer a fine selection of dog-friendly holiday cottages, so dogs can enjoy the walking too.
