If you're taking a trip down to the south-west of England this summer, you'll have a number of things to consider before planning your trip. For instance, if you're travelling with a large group of people - say, your family or a big gathering of friends - it might be hard for you to find accommodation that suits your needs. However, renting a holiday cottage in Devon or Cornwall is sure to put to rest any accommodation worries you might have - as well as giving you the opportunity to escape the hardships of urban life and explore the countryside in style.
Opt for a holiday cottage in Cornwall, for example, and you'll be able to enjoy comfortable accommodation in one of England's most stunning locations. If you're a fan of nature walks, rent a holiday cottage by the Cornish coast and experience the South West Coastal Path, which will take you along the coastline of Britain's south-west peninsula. The trail will lead you along some of the most spectacular remote cliffs, beaches, heaths, farms, fishing villages and towns in Cornwall, and provides a fantastic way for visitors to the south-west of England to experience the region's diversity and stunning scenery.
Cornwall is home to a range of busy towns, so you can be sure that you'll still be near any basic services that you might need on your holiday. Rent a holiday cottage near Falmouth, for instance, and you'll be able to access all the amenities that a seaside town offers. What's more, Falmouth is home to the world's third largest natural harbour; and tourists staying near the town will also be able to visit the Glendurgan National Trust garden and the National Maritime Museum in Falmouth, which is home to the National Maritime Museum's small boat collection.
Alternatively, rent a holiday cottage near Penzance, one of Cornwall's most bustling seaside towns, and you'll be within easy distance of St. Michael's Mount, a National Trust property located just off the coast of Penzance and one of Cornwall's most visited attractions. And if you've got a car with you, why not take a drive from your holiday cottage near Penzance to the Tate St Ives, one of the four Tate Galleries in the UK.
But wherever you choose to rent your holiday cottage in Cornwall, there are certain must-see attractions that you'd be a fool to miss! Make sure you visit Land's End - the UK's most south-westerly point - for a taste of one of the country's most famous locations. Moreover, take a trip to The Eden Project when you're in Cornwall, to appreciate the iconic geographical and environmental feature which has fast become one of the most popular visitor attractions in the UK since its opening in 2001. Of course, no trip to Cornwall would be complete without tasting the regions' culinary specialities, which include Cornish Pasties, seafood, Saffron Cake and the famous English Cream Tea.
So make sure you rent a holiday cottage the next time you visit Cornwall. Whether you're on a large family get-together or you're simply taking a romantic holiday with that special someone, holiday cottages are an ideal solution!
