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.

Very nice lodge with lovely views

5 of 5
We spent 3 days over New Year in the lodge as 2 families of 7 people. We found the lodge to have plenty of room for all of us, the bedrooms were nice and comfortable and the two bathrooms were perfect for us. The lodge was well equipped with games and the kitchen had all the utensils we needed. The holiday park itself had a lovely bar and restaurant and the swimming pool was nice and warm which was ideal considering the weather at the time. Overall we had a lovely time and would definitely look to return.
