Holiday cottages in West Cornwall

Stay at one of our holiday cottages in West Cornwall and discover long stretches of golden sands, smugglers coves with glistening waters and traditional fishing villages, all connected by the South West Coast Path.

You could explore the bustling harbour towns of Penzance and Falmouth, or visit the galleries and artisan cafés in St. Ives. Enjoy lazy beach days at Kynance Cove or walk along the windswept headland of Lizard Point.

Whether you're looking for a romantic retreat for two, a sea view family cottage a short walk from the beach, or larger properties for a big celebration, we have something for you.
