These comfortable accommodations are suitable for groups of four to six people, perfect for larger families or group getaways. Many are also pet friendly, so there’s no need to find a sitting service or kennel. Compared to other areas like surfer’s favourite Bude or foodie hotspot Padstow, holiday cottages in Little Petherick generally cost less. Affordable as they are, however, properties are rich in amenities like fireplaces, modern appliances and electronics.

Things to do

-Natural heritage: The Lost Gardens of Heligan are a short 12-mile drive away from the village. In this popular botanical garden, children and adults alike will delight at the magical exhibits. Even with its microclimate, there's something enchanting about finding such a sub-tropical paradise in the middle of a Cornwall getaway. Whenever you visit, it will certainly be a day well spent.

-Family attractions: Crealy Great Adventure Park is just three to five miles away from holiday apartments in Little Petherick and a big draw for families.

-Historical attractions: The village of Tintagel will have history buffs in heaven. The Tintagel Old Post Office is a National Trust property dating from the 14th century; but it's the ruins of King Arthur’s castle and the village’s many links with the Knights of the Round Table that attract. The walks around the village are among the most scenic anywhere and all of this combines to make Tintagel one of the most visited places in Britain.

-Cultural activities: The Eden Project is a global garden collected and grown under artificial biomes (or bio-domes). Visitors can wander its many paths and explore the stunning variety of flora.

Fabulous cottage and location

5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful 5 days at Wain cottage which was beautifully appointed and extremely comfortable, a real home from home. We would not hesitate to highly recommend this as the perfect holiday cottage and look forward to returning as soon as we can.
