Rent 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. The recent TV show Poldark has also reinvigorated interest in Cornwall as a holiday destination as new generations become aware of its beautiful beaches, quaint villages and stunning natural landscapes.

Many visitors to Cornwall choose to rent a holiday cottage - the perfect way to enjoy the county's traditional charm. With hundreds to choose from, it will be easy to find your dream holiday home. The most common areas to rent a cottage are along the North coast, in towns such as Newquay and Port Isaac.
