Cornwall cottage holidays

2Now is the time of year when, with the weather being typically gloomy and depressing, that the majority of us start to look ahead to the summer, and in particular our summer holiday. You may well be one of the many who has decided not to fly away to sun this year and instead opt for a staycation. This is the latest buzzword for staying at home for a holiday, not in your own house but in your own country, and it is quickly catching on.

If you haven’t holidayed in the UK for years, if ever, it can be tough finding somewhere that suits everyone, and also where the weather, albeit not guaranteed, still has the best chance of sun. When you take all these things into consideration, Cornwall emerges from the pack as it has all this to offer, and much more besides. Rolling countryside, wild moorlands, rugged coastlines, glorious beaches, legend and folklore and picture postcard villages are just some of the reasons why Cornwall is considered to be the best holiday destination in Britain.

There is nothing bad you can say about Cornwall, and it would take pages and pages to list all of its good points, so rather than drone on, this article is concentrating on the essentials, and when it comes to a holiday the top priority for many is accommodation. With Cornwall having such a vast and varied landscape that deserves exploring to the max, the best accommodation choice is to go self catering. Holiday cottages in Cornwall as modern, comfortable and offer a great base from which to explore the area.

Ranging is size from 1 bedroomed cottages perfect for romantic getaways to multi rooms for large groups or families; there are Cornwall cottages to suit everyone. You can find them by the beach or in the countryside, and with a car at your disposal you can see the best of what Cornwall has to offer without having to drive to far. Long days at the beach or leisurely walks or cycling through the countryside are the ideal ways to spend a summers day and forget all about work and the other stresses of life.

While it is possible to travel from one end of Cornwall to the other, you don’t really want to be spending all your holiday driving to and from attractions, so do your research as to which attractions most appeal to you then look for a cottage in that area. A cottage a few miles inland gives you the best of both worlds in that you have both country and coast within easy reach, and the fact that it is unlikely you have close neighbours, the children can really let off steam without you worrying they are disturbing anyone.

With Tintagel in the north and Lands End in the south, and so much in between, there is so much to like about Cornwall that you may find yourself joining the ever increasing band who return to Cornwall time and time again, and who can blame you?
