Cornwall Holiday Cottages Just Like From a Postcard

There are a number of very good reasons why tens of thousands of people head to Cornwall each year for their holiday. This is a beautiful county; steeped in mythical legends and tales of smuggling from centuries gone by. One ideal way of really being able to get out and about to explore this fascinating duchy is to hire Cornwall holiday cottages.

Cornwall cottages is far from being a new concept. Indeed, these rental properties have been a popular idea for a number of decades now. This has meant that some Cornwall cottages have been purpose-built for tourists and can sometimes be found in specially designed villages.

The entire county of Cornwall may be said to appeal to tourists from all over the UK. There is such a huge number of glorious beaches here: on both the north and south coasts and the quaint Cornish fishing villages are a massive draw. For a real taste of old world Cornish charm, why not choose Cornwall holiday cottages in and around the small towns of Polperro and Looe. Both are conveniently close to the city of Plymouth which is the second most historical city in the country, after London, of course.

The Eden project, near St. Austell, attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors every year. In fact, it is the most popular tourist attraction in the county by far. These bio-domes have been established for a number of years now and this has allowed the spectacular plant attractions to have really established themselves. As this attraction is close to the centre of the county, you can guarantee that any Cornwall holiday cottages will be within easy reach.

The northern coast of Cornwall is where you will find the best beaches and picture postcard towns. For a day filled with a little more action and excitement, you should definitely pay Newquay a visit. This is Cornwall’s most popular seaside resort and there is plenty here to keep the entire family amused. St. Ives is further west, along the same coast and provides for a more discerning holiday resort. One of the Tate Galleries is actually located in this town and definitely to be included on any sightseeing itinerary. Cornwall holiday cottages are extremely plentiful in this part of the duchy and this is where many people choose to stay.

If you really feel like being more adventurous and can bear to leave your Cornwall holiday cottages, why not take the ferry from Penzance to the fascinating Isles of Scilly? These tiny islands are isolated in the Atlantic Ocean but really do provide a fascinating insight into what life must have been like on the mainland, hundreds of years ago. The people are very friendly here and you may even find holiday cottage here to complement that perfect getaway.
