With a host of camping and caravan sites there is plenty of choice, but many holiday makers prefer the home from home comforts that holiday cottages provide.

Fantastic cottage within the owl sanctuary

5 of 5
Our stay in Hooty Owl cottage was fantastic. The cottage is immaculate with everything you could need for your stay, home from home including access to the sanctuary. Tom & Carolyn make sure you are well looked after & nothing is too much trouble. You are near to Newquay, Padstow & the usual hotspots but we chose to enjoy a week learning about the owls & the wonderful work that the sanctuary undertake. It is, for us a piece of heaven.
