Hideaways’ Cornwall cottages are situated on the rugged North Atlantic coast with its dramatic cliffs and along the more sheltered South coast, with its lush river valleys and marvellous sub-tropical gardens. Cornwall’s varied coastline stretches for miles so whether you’re looking for somewhere with plenty of sand that children can play on, a great surfing beach, or a bracing cliff-top walk, Cornwall has it in abundance.
Cornwall’s coastline is dotted with picturesque fishing harbours, reminders of an era when fishing was the mainstay of its economy. These days, St Ives, Port Isaac, Padstow and Boscastle are also a mecca for painters and sculptors as well as being ever popular holiday destinations, their narrow streets lined with art galleries, antique shops and restaurants. Many Cornish places are associated with Celtic myth and legend, Tintagel being the legendary birthplace of King Arthur, Dozmary Pool, the resting place of his sword, Excalibur. Our holiday cottages in Cornwall are within easy reach of these attractions, allowing you every opportunity to discover them during your holiday.
Inland, or as far inland as you can be in a county where you are rarely more than half an hour from the sea, is where you’ll find many of Cornwall’s attractions. A ‘must-visit’ for anybody staying in our cottages in Cornwall is the world-famous Eden Project. With its impressive biomes, numerous outdoor displays and a plethora of events taking place throughout the year, it’s easy to spend an entire day here and still not feel as if you have seen everything.
If you really want to find out more about Cornwall during your stay, much of its history is on display out in the countryside. Whether you’re visiting the old mines that used to drive the county’s tin trade or the many, ancient monuments - cliff castles, stone circles and chamber tombs - found right across Cornwall, the signs left by those who used to live and work here are impossible to ignore. Well worth a visit are Geevor Tin Mine, Launceston and Restormel castles and Chysauster Iron Age Village, now maintained by English Heritage.
Depending on the time of year you come to stay in one of our holiday cottages in Cornwall, you may also have the opportunity to take part in with one of the many local festivals that happen in villages and towns throughout the county. Whether it’s Cornish hurling in St Columb, ‘Obby ‘Oss day in Padstow or the Furry Dance in Helston, you’re sure to be charmed by the unique celebrations on display.
We hope we’ll have the pleasure of welcoming you to one of our cottages in Cornwall; each one is unique and individual and we believe our selection represents some of the best holiday accommodation in the area.
