Boutique Cornwall

Annabelle's verdict:

A cottage in Cornwall, what could be more relaxing? Until you have to shop and cook, or find a good place for dinner. Book a luxury bolthole in the West Country with Boutique Retreats and they do all the hard work, from booking restaurants to arranging a private chef or deliveries of local produce. All of which leaves little to do but put your feet up and enjoy the peace. Perfect.

Boutique Retreats says

Our gorgeous hand-picked homes in the UK range from a super-sweet fisherman’s cottage for two to a palatial Georgian hall for eight, offering a truly unique stay. But that’s not all – it’s our aim to bridge the gap between boutique hotels and traditional holiday cottages, so we provide a personal service too, not simply a place to stay.

We place the personal touch at the heart of the Boutique Retreats experience. The team behind-the-scenes is on hand to help before, during and after your stay. We can arrange for a private chef to cater for you, deliver local produce to your holiday cottage, take care of restaurant reservations and generally point you in the right direction.

We’ve got just the place for you. Whether it’s a large and luxurious country house or a romantic penthouse for two, our retreats all share the same tip-top standard of luxury. There are ideas for your honeymoon – this hideaway perched on the water’s edge for example – a sunset soak in a cliff-top pool or hot tub on Cornwall’s surf-sprayed coast, or a getaway in a sumptuous dog-friendly cottage.

From homestays to farmstays, itty-bitty boltholes to big and beautiful houses, all of our holiday properties share the same high standards of decor, furnishings and gizmos with a big dollop of style.

We have more than 30 years’ experience in the holiday letting business. What’s more, we know where they are located inside out. So whether you want recommendations for the best walks, where to find hidden coves or tips on where the best surf is, just ask – we’re here to make sure you get the most out of your holiday.

We know how good getaways should be.
