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.

Xmas break on the Hoe

5 of 5
The flat was comfortable, clean and ready. Complimentary tea, coffee, milk, shampoo etc were most well received and Jackie and Andy - housekeepers - were wonderful with any daft questions I had. Thank you all - a lovely way to spend Xmas.
