Cornwall cottages

Amanda's verdict
My family love Cornwall, we’ve been holidaying in the south west regularly since both boys were young. Happy memories of hiking along coast paths in the sunshine with babies in slings, watching first surf lessons at Watergate Bay over a hot chocolate, eating salty fish and chips on the harbour at St Ives and waking up close to the sea.

With its enchanting mix of sandy beaches, blue seas and friendly seaside towns, Cornwall is the ideal holiday destination.

The north coast picks up the Atlantic swells, making it the perfect choice for those looking to go surfing or coasteering. North Cornwall is also home to some nationally renowned restaurants.

The gentler south Cornish coast, with its sheltered beaches and estuaries, is the perfect place to get away from it all. Take sailing lessons or just sit back and relax with a day on the sands.

The west coast of Cornwall, from Hayle to Falmouth, has something for everyone, from hidden smugglers’ coves to three-mile-long swathes of beach, from clifftop theatres to island castles.

There are 258 miles of stunning South West Coast Path to explore in Cornwall; a great way for the entire family to experience the wonderful coastal scenery, wildlife and heritage.
