Cottages in Cornwall

Annabelle's verdict
Spend a day walking the coastal paths of Cornwall and you might wonder why Brits ever bother to travel abroad. The undulating hills, secret sandy coves and soaring cliffs are as fine as you'll see anywhere. With great local restaurants and superb self-catering cottages, this is paradise on your doorstep.

Classic Cottages says

A short break in Cornwall is the perfect way to discover the many delights this beautiful county has to offer. Adventurers will love exploring over 200 miles of the Coastal Path where secret coves, dramatic cliffs and sandy beaches await. Inland, the deserted moorlands of Bodmin offer fabulous cycle paths and walkers can enjoy miles of scenic rambling.

Cornwall is famed for being foodie heaven. Stop off at a roadside stall to stock up on the freshest of produce, or perhaps treat yourself to a famous pasty. Many a famous chef has put down roots in Cornwall and you are never far away from the delights of Padstow where Rick Stein invites you to dine in style, or perhaps Port Isaac where Nathan Outlaw cooks up a storm.

With a collection of over 700 gorgeous properties, from waterfront apartments to romantic boltholes for two and large family cottages with a hot tub or swimming pool, we have something for everyone here at Classic Cottages.
