Cornwall

CornwallLocated in the South West of England, Cornwall is well known for its picturesque moorland landscape, stunning coastline and unique cultural identity. Indeed, the region’s great natural beauty, combined with its rich history and mild climate, have helped to make it one of the United Kingdom’s most popular tourist destinations, attracting approximately five million visitors every year.

Cornwall has countless tourist attractions, sights, festivals and events to keep visitors entertained, as well as numerous accommodation options to choose from. However, for those travelling to the county on holiday, by far the best way to experience the region is by staying in one of its many luxury cottages.

We are able to offer an extensive range of cottages throughout the area, catering to all needs and budgets.

Cornwall’s Coastline

Many of Cornwall’s breathtaking beaches serve as major drawing points to the area, attracting swathes of tourists each year, especially during the summer months. In fact, large areas of the Cornish coastline have been officially recognised and protected as ‘Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty’.

The sandy coastline in the north of the region includes some of the most popular tourist destinations, like Newquay, Bude and Watergate Bay. Moreover, the town of St Ives was named as the best seaside town by the Guardian newspaper back in 2007 and received the same honour at the British Travel Awards in 2010 and 2011.

A number of the beaches along the south coast are more sheltered, rocky and rugged, with examples including Porthcurno and Fowey. This section of the county, known as the Cornish Riviera, also has a strong fishing culture.

Luxury Cornish Cottages

Whether you are travelling to the area alone, with a partner, as a family, or with a group of friends, we have a range of luxury cottages in Cornwall to choose from, each with their own defining characteristics. These cottages are available on a self catering basis and there are options to suit all demographics and requirements.

Those looking to enjoy a family holiday may be interested in one of the pet and dog friendly options, allowing them to bring their pets with them and save on the cost of kennels or sitters. Meanwhile, couples or groups may be tempted to check out some of the more lavish cottages, such as those with hot tubs or private swimming pools.

Our varied accommodation options are spread throughout the county. This means that some will be best suited to those looking for easy access to the busier towns, like St Austell or Redruth, while others are ideal for those hoping to stay in some of Cornwall’s smaller or more remote villages, away from the tourist hotspots.

Places to Visit

Of course, in addition to relaxing in a luxury cottage, visitors to the region will also want to get out and about, spending time in some of Cornwall’s towns and villages.

Truro is the only city in Cornwall and it serves as the region’s administrative and retail centre. The city contains a number of sites of interest, such as Truro Cathedral, the Royal Cornwall Museum and a large selection of shops, restaurants and pubs.

St Austell is the most populated settlement in Cornwall, and tourists are attracted to the town thanks to its sporting events, public houses and nearby beaches. Some of the region’s other popular places to visit are Porthtowan, which is particularly popular amongst surfers, and Porthtowan, home of the ‘Obby ‘Oss Festival.

Attractions

The Eden Project, based in St Blazey, is currently Cornwall’s most popular tourist destination, attracting as many as one in every eight visitors to the region. The large greenhouse complex is home to art exhibitions, educational facilities and plants collected from all across the globe.

For couples visiting the region, there are few more romantic experiences than a trip to the gorgeous Lost Gardens of Heligan; one of the United Kingdom’s most popular botanical gardens. Furthermore, the award winning Newquay Zoo is a sure hit with younger visitors, housing animals ranging from lions and meerkats to penguins and red pandas.

Active-8 Cornwall offers a variety of outdoor activities, such as canoeing, snorkelling, off road driving and paint balling, making it a great choice for school groups, corporate parties and stag or hen weekends. Alternatively, those with a keen interest in history, art and culture may wish to check out the Newquay Steam Railway, or the Barbara Hepworth Museum in St Ives, for examples of quieter, more sophisticated offerings.
