Cornwall Cottages

The Cornish Coast, in the south-west of England, is popular with artists as well as holidaymakers. In Penzance, you can walk to St. Michael's Mount at low tide or take the ferry at high tide; the view from the top of this Benedictine monastery is superb. St. Ives boasts wonderful beaches, including the golden sand and calm waters at Portminster Beach along with some of the best ice-cream in the UK. Newquay is also known as the surfing capital of the region, with great waves at Fistral Beach and if you’re looking for something a little calmer, then Glaze Beach may be more to your liking.

Devon Holiday Rentals

In Devon, you can enjoy the diverse coastline, from white pebble beaches to golden sand to rugged cliffs, or explore the wild moorlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor. Beaches range from the surfing beaches of north Devon, such as Saunton and Croyde, to the more sheltered southern resorts of Torbay and Paignton. Visitor activities include golf, fishing, surfing, sailing, sea kayaking, diving and kiteboarding.

Lake District Cottages

In England's pristine Lake District, the northern lakes, including Derwentwater, Ullwater and Buttermere, tend to be less crowded. Activities include hiking, swimming, golf, theatre, lake cruises and mini-bus tours of the area. The town of Keswick is filled with Victorian buildings housing gift shops, tea-rooms and pubs. Daily guided walks are offered from Keswick and plenty of other places in the locality.

We loved sitting on the terrace watching the sunset (on the days the weather permitted!). Highly recommended.

Als Ausgangsbasis für die Erkundung der Umgebung war das Cottage wunderbar. Wir haben die Zeit hier sehr genossen und können uns vorstellen hier wieder zu wohnen. Familie Steel waren nette Gastgeber und sehr hilfsbereit.
