Cottages to rent in Cornwall are ideal for getting acquainted with this magical part of England. Regardless of where you are in Cornwall, you're never far from the sea. Inland, cutting through typical winding lanes with high hedges, you'll end up enjoying unexpected stunning coastal and sea views. The the air is refreshingly salty and wonderfully clean. Because light pollution is minimal, the night time heavens are teeming with stars. And the shorelines are breathtakingly beautiful, whether it's the surfers' paradise of Newquay or the county's numerous secret, hidden coastal caves and coves.
Cornish holiday cottages come in all kinds of shapes and sizes. From basic to sumptuous, family and pet friendly to adult-only retreats, based on the coast or inland. Many people opt for a place that offers a genuine home from home. Great amenities truly are a must unless you're into roughing it.

A garden's particularly important for anyone who is bringing the kids with you, offering somewhere for them to play out before bed when the weather's warm. Imagine. You're seated at a garden table having a cool glass of wine or beer. The sun's just setting. You've had a fantastic day and now you're enjoying the a feeling of being truly relaxed for the first time in ages. All of your problems have disappeared... that's Cornwall!
