Cornwall, one of the most beautiful and protected parts of England, is home to many outstanding holiday cottages available to rent for weekend breaks and longer-term stays. The area is popular with holidaymakers due to its agreeable climate, long and sandy coastline, and combination of sleepy villages and picturesque countryside. Much of Cornwall, along with Devon, is recognised as an Area of Outstanding Beauty and is known internationally for its beauty. Holiday cottages in Cornwall can be found in close proximity to coastal areas, perfect for seaside breaks with the family, or head closer towards Truro and neighbouring towns if you fancy something a bit different.
Cornwall holiday cottages are also perfect if you want a taste of South-western culture; the area is know for its links to the visual arts, due to its unspoilt maritime scenery and lack of pollution, which gives clear visibility (and is great for amateur astronomers looking for some star-gazing). Music is also widespread in Cornwall, with an abundance of folk festivals and brass bands - common in many of England’s former mining towns - for you to enjoy. Watersports, including rowing and sailing, have a strong following in Cornwall for obvious reasons.
Whatever your reasons for visiting Cornwall, holiday cottages are a great alternative to hotels and offer you the home-away-from-home experience in a beautiful part of the country. Cornwall holiday homes are also very versatile; it’s never one-size-fits-all and you can choose a property based on your requirements. Family and large groups will prefer bigger mansions and estates, often complete with luxury modern conveniences including jacuzzis, while couples may prefer a cosier, romantic cottage with traditional features and close proximity to the forest.
