Choose a region to find the most popular holiday destinations and suitable cottages.

Lizard Peninsula

The rugged Lizard Peninsula is located in the southwest of Cornwall. Surrounded on three sides by the sea the area has a large number of beaches. The sandy beaches of the west coast such as at Porthleven and Perranuthnoe allow surfing, whilst Kynance Cove is spectacular all year round.

West Cornwall

West Cornwall is a region of opposites. On the moors of ancient Penwith it is possible to take yourself back to the distant past amongst stone circles and Iron Age hill forts; whilst the vibrant town of St. Ives has long been a draw for artists due to the quality of its light, it also boasts some of the best beaches in the Duchy.

Mid Cornwall

Mid Cornwall provides the perfect base from which to explore the whole of the county with ease. Due to its shape, you are never all that far from the sea yet Bodmin Moor offers the chance to lose yourself for a while, explore former mining ventures or investigate ancient standing stones and settlements. That wonder of the modern world, the Eden Project is here along with the Lost Gardens of Heligan.

South East Cornwall

South East Cornwall offers a variety of options for visitors. The coastal fringe features the popular towns of Looe and Polperro. There are fine beaches at Lantic Bay, Talland Bay as well as Freathy in the far east. The Rame Peninsula is well worth exploring.

North Cornwall

North Cornwall has a wealth of places in which to stay and to visit. The dramatic north coast features mystical Tintagel and rugged Boscastle, further west lies the surfing mecca of Newquay and the cosmopolitan Padstow. Fine beaches include Watergate Bay, and the 'seven bays for seven days' between Trevone and Porthcothan.
