You’d think that Cornwall hardly needs an introduction and yet this rugged outcrop leaning out into the Atlantic Ocean is a diverse county of fabulous beaches and surf, stunning countryside, and a fascinating collection of artisan producers. Summer holidays in Cornwall go far beyond sandcastles and stone skimming.
There are fishing villages as busy with traditional fishermen as they are with happy tourists, and welcoming rural communities producing art, gifts and delicacies that make a self-catering holiday in Cornwall a foodie dream. Known locally as Kernow, Cornwall is packed with patriotic heritage. It’s a county of lighthouses and shipwrecks where you’re rarely more than a short drive from the coast. Whether you’re drawn here by the prospect of an idyllic family holiday, or by the world famous attractions such as the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan, you might need one of our Cornwall holiday cottages to create a base for your visit.
