Make a holiday rental home or cottage in South East Cornwall, England your home away from home

South East Cornwall has fewer attractions for water sports enthusiasts than other parts of the region, as many of the beaches in this part of the county are more shingle than sand. In its place lies a fascinating history of smugglers and pirates, some of the UK’s finest coastal walks and scenic routes, and the quaint fishing towns and rural villages that perfectly sum up the unique Cornish lifestyle. Those looking for a truly authentic, peaceful and beautiful break far from the hustle and bustle of everyday life should genuinely consider a week or two in this blissful region of Cornwall.

Amazing place, great hosts

5 of 5
Very upto date annex. Had everything you need for a stay (including milk, flowers and biscuits on arrival). Everything had a superior feel to it, bed (very comfy), the bed linen, the towels. Hosts couldn’t have been more welcoming and will definitely be returning. The area is stunning with great national trust walks and lovely pubs to visit.

West Bay Barn Conversion in Idyllic Country Surroundings - Fabulous

5 of 5
Our family of 12 and 2 dogs have just enjoyed the most wonderful family celebration holiday in West Bay, Noss Mayo. The huge family rooms and ample garden space enabled us all to enjoy our holiday without being 'under each others feet'. Plenty of books and games to keep the children occupied as well as a very large tv with others in bedrooms. Having said that it was the swimming pool and pool table that were the 'jewels' as far as our family was concerned. We enjoyed warm swimming in a clean well kept pool and the clean accommodation is a credit to those that service it all. The BBQ was easy to use and the outdoor seating ideal for adults and children on separate tables as well as plenty of relaxing chairs. The short drive to Mothercombe Beach was worth while but walking to the local Stoke Beach Cove along footpaths with glorious country and sea views with a swim at the end was a lovely dog friendly walk taking about 45mins.... of course you could always drive to the car park at the top!! In all a Fabulous Holiday with Thanks to owner Mary for all her 'email' attention.
