The race to book the best holiday rentals in Cornwall for this autumn and winter is on. Choose from Classic Cottages’ range of meticulously-managed self-catering holiday homes and you can’t go wrong
Cornwall comes out on top time and time again when Britons are surveyed on their favourite staycation destinations. From the South West Coast Path, which caters for all manner of walkers, to the secluded sandy beaches and secluded coves that are gold dust to families and couples, it’s a destination that guarantees an escape from the everyday.
Classic Cottages, announced as a Which? Recommended Provider in July 2021, are host to some of the best self-catering properties along this beautiful stretch of coast, because they do everything in their power to ensure perfection. With a manager assigned to each and every holiday home, inventories are carried out regularly to ensure guests have every single piece of crockery and bed linen that they need. Strong relationships are built between Classic Cottages and property owners so any issues are ironed out instantly and amiably.
Classic Cottages exists to please even the most discerning of guests. Online you’ll find detailed descriptions of each and every home, with photos of every room and outside space, so you have all the information you need to make the right decision for you and your family.
That’s why we’re showcasing three of Classic Cottages’ most charming coastal properties in Cornwall: will you journey into the deep wilderness of Cornwall’s south at Land’s End, or explore the dramatic cliffs and spectacular surf of the county’s north? We couldn’t think of a lovelier decision to make…
Views of the picturesque St Michael’s Mount may be the most sought after in Cornwall. This property is one of the special few that can lay claim to this spectacular sight year-round. It even boasts a hot tub, perfectly positioned on multi-level decking, from which to admire the iconic tidal island – with a glass of something bubbly perhaps.
This spacious coastal hideaway sleeps eight and its sleek and simple interiors make it a calming haven for friends and family alike to spread out and enjoy each others’ company.
While here, there will be many, many trips to the beach, as it is only 200 yards away. You can also reach the busy market town of Marazion within five minutes, home to pubs, galleries and restaurants, and the idyllic and renowned Mousehole Harbour is in easy reach.
We love this coastal home-from-home for its proximity to everything you might need while on holiday. Rowena is a gorgeous apartment perched right on the South West Coast Path on the Lizard Peninsula, with views from its balcony, living space and private terrace over the secluded Mullion Cove.
For a bit of extra entertainment, guests of Rowena can venture into the village of Mullion (an easy walk) where they can enjoy complimentary access to The Mullion Cove Hotel’s outdoor heated pool (March to October) and brand new gym.
And you won’t miss this luxury when you’re back at base either. Rowena is equipped with everything from Netflix to a Nespresso coffee machine – you won’t want for anything here – which become particularly important as the nights draw in later in the year. When the outdoors are off limits, having the perfect holiday cottage is more important than ever, and Rowena is just that.
Located in St Agnes, a short walk from the seemingly tropical waters of Trevaunance Cove, Bower Cottage is a beautiful, characterful gem that will make your staycation one to remember and savour forever.
Restored with the utmost care, natural wood features and high vaulted feelings give it an understated but classy air. We also love the Alpha Pizza Oven and rattan furniture in the private garden and patio area, making al fresco dining a delight. Two wood-burners inside are ideal for cooler nights and there is even a handy (and hot) outdoor shower to ensure the sand and sea stay where they belong. The cottage sleeps six and they can’t wait to welcome you!
And there’s many more Cornish refuges where these come from. You can browse Classic Cottages’ hand-picked selection of self-catering properties in the region here.
