Cornish Cottage Holiday Accommodation to Let

Staying in Cornish holiday cottages is simply the best way to explore Cornwall. From being the isolated home of Celtic Kings, Seafarers, tin-miners and fishermen (many of the latter can still be found), Cornwall has re-invented itself to appeal to beach lovers, surfers, artists and families in search of relaxing, sometimes active, self catering holidays.  Cornwall's beaches such as Sennan Cove, Fistral Beach and Crantock are regularly listed amongst the best in the world. The coastal villages of Padstow, Falmouth and Fowey make attractive harbours for yachtsmen. St Ives, now home to a Tate Gallery, (The Tate St. Ives) has a wonderful collection of the many artists who found their spiritual home here. Being surrounded on both sides by the sea, taking to the water in Cornwall is very easy. Most beaches will have desirable holiday cottages within easy reach of lovely stretches of sand, swimming and surfing opportunities. There are also plenty of opportunities to hire boats. Chunter around the coastline in a small self-hire boat from many of the small fishing villages such as Mevagissey, Mousehole or Looe, or take the passenger ferry from the Cathedral city of Truro down to the sea past the yachting haven of Mylor to Falmouth or from Falmouth across the estuary to St Mawes.
