Cottages in Cornwall and Self Catering Accommodation by Holiday Lettings

Why Cornwall?

With its sweeping sandy beaches, quaint fishing villages, sensational seafood and a fascinating Celtic history, it’s no wonder that Cornwall has eternal appeal. Its mild climate and huge range of attractions, from the Eden Project to Tintagel Castle, will keep you coming back year after year.

Food & Drink

You’re in for a treat when it comes to Cornish cuisine! The noble Cornish pasty, packed with steaming hot beef and veg, is just what you need after a day spent surfing or walking. Seafood is excellent too, from cockles on the beach to fine dining at Rick Stein’s restaurant in Padstow. And no trip to Cornwall is complete without the classic Cornish cream tea.

A Family Favourite

Keeping the kids entertained in Cornwall is a breeze. Highlights include discovering the legend of King Arthur at Tintagel castle, seeing a show at the Minack Theatre, with its beautiful views of Porthcurno Bay, and exploring the The Lost Gardens of Heligan in St Austell. And with so many cottages and self-catering accommodation in Cornwall to choose from, picking a place to stay will be a pleasure.

Beaches In Cornwall

If it’s a beach holiday in Britain you’re looking for, Cornwall ticks all the boxes. The subtropical climate and array of Blue Flag beaches will appeal to couples, families and watersports enthusiasts alike. Surf at Fistral Beach, swim at Porthcurno, go rockpooling at Treyarnon Bay and much, much more beyond.
