Cornwall holiday cottages

Located at the south west peninsula of Great Britain, Cornwall is as diverse a holiday destination as there can be. With facets of its personality ranging from high paced adrenalin fuelled short breaks to child friendly holidays and then down through to reflective countryside walks on the beguiling Bodmin moor, it is perhaps the most versatile place to stay in the UK.

In the summer, with temperatures usually rivalling those countries found in the Mediterranean, it is the perfect location to go for a beach break. No matter where you stay in Cornwall, you are always 16 miles or less from the sea as there are more than 200 beaches across almost 300 miles of coastline. Whilst North Cornwall has the more energetic coastline of the county, making it particularly suitable for surfing and other water sports, it also comprises of the beautiful sands of Newquay and Bude, to name but a few of those famous for their golden dunes.

However, the seaside and sea views are not the only jewels in its crown - the place is furthermore blessed with an abundance of picturesque hills, valleys and cliff tops which all add to the spiritual charm. Steeped in mystery and folklore, such as the legends of King Arthur and tales of Cornish Witchcraft, be sure to take a trip to St Michaels Mount near Marazion and learn about the myths of giants long ago. From there head to Penzance in West Cornwall, to hear the legends of ghosts, pirates and smuggling.

Should less fabled and more factual sightseeing be desired, then there are medieval buildings and pre-historic remains in abundance the whole county through to satisfy the curiosity of young and old.

As is congruent with its character, Cornwall again shows its flexible nature by not only celebrating the past, but additionally embracing the present and inspiring future generations, by being home to the top visitor attraction, the Eden Project. Two biomes supporting different climates and housing plants from around the world not only displays forward thinking and concerns for the environment, but is also highly educational and a must for every family visiting the area.

So whether staying in a holiday cottage, log cabin or another form of self catering accommodation such as a yurt, rest assured that Cornwall will provide the holiday of a lifetime with memories that will be cherished forever.
