Choose a Cornwall holiday cottage to explore Britain's dramatic coast
In recent years, Cornwall has become one of the most popular travel destinations in the United Kingdom. It boasts idyllic beaches, beautiful countryside and a unique culture that appeals to holidaymakers all over the world.
Located in the most southwesterly point of England, Cornwall is unusual in that it only has one city, Truro. However, the charm of such a rural landscape is clear, with large stretches of Cornwall's coastline protected as Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The most popular type of holiday letting in Cornwall is a cottage. With hundreds to choose from, it will be easy to find your dream holiday home. The most common areas to rent are along the North coast, in towns such as Newquay and Port Isaac. The real benefit of choosing a Cornwall holiday letting is that it allows for a truly authentic Cornish experience. This is ideal for those who prefer to organise their holiday independently.

There are a number of options for reaching your Cornwall holiday home by train, including direct high-speed sleeper trains to Penzance from London that run frequently, and direct trains that run daily from Bath and Bristol. For those who want to get there even faster, there are year-round flights daily to Newquay Airport from Manchester and London.
