Vacation rentals in Cornwall

A vacation rental in England's sunny southwest

The county of Cornwall, surrounded by the English Channel in the south and the North Atlantic in the north, is one of the most popular holiday regions in England due to its mild climate. If you are looking for a modern vacation rental or a vacation rental for your family, you will find it especially on the coast in places like Downderry and St. Mawes in the south or Tintagel in the north. But you'll be particularly pleased to stay in a quarter on The Lizard Heritage Coast and Penwith Heritage Coast, where you'll find the sea breeze blowing around you amidst lush green scenery. Alternatively you can spend your beach holiday at the picturesque St. Ives Bay. Culture lovers, on the other hand, feel particularly at home in larger cities such as Newquay, Truro and St. Austell, especially as there are numerous museums and historical sights to visit.

Holidays in Cornwall

Travelers and Activities

Explore legendary places

Cornwall is not only one of England's most scenic landscapes, but also one of its richest in history. Embark on an unforgettable journey into the history of England and unveil the secrets of prehistoric sites such as the stone circle "Boscawen-ûn", the Iron Age settlement "Carn Euny" or the 5,500 year old "The Giant's Table" from the Neolithic and visit the Tristan Stone, which is said to be related to the saga of Tristan and Isolde. The numerous manor houses like Godolphin House and Mount Edgcumbe House, which invite to a visit, are much younger but not less worth seeing. In no case should a detour to the ruins of Tintagel Castle, situated on a narrow promontory, be missed. Not only does it impress with its breathtaking location, but it is also one of the most important sites of the Arthurian saga.

Culinary Cornwall Explore

That English cuisine is said to be bad is not true. Take a culinary stroll through the restaurants of Cornwall and see for yourself the wonderful taste of the numerous specialities. These include above all the regional dish, the "Cornish Pasty", a puff pastry often filled with meat, vegetables and potatoes, which is served in over 20 variations. You should also try the "Roast" with "Mintsauce" and a portion of "Yorkshire Pudding". And if you like it a bit more rustic, you'll be happy about bite-sized and grilled white fish pieces "Whitebaite", which are often served as a starter, or the typical English fast food "Fish and Chips". Cornwall's cuisine is rounded off by typical desserts such as the aromatic "scones" with strawberry jam.

Things to know

Best travel time

While the sun is comparatively rare to see, especially in Central England, Cornwall is already spoiled for sunshine in spring. No wonder that the travel season starts in May with an average of up to 7 hours of sunshine per day and temperatures around the 15-degree mark. Both nature lovers and active holidaymakers will find optimal holiday conditions from the merry month until well into September. However, if you want to rent your vacation rental or apartment on the coast of Cornwall for a family beach holiday, you should switch to the summer season between mid-June and early September. Then, in addition to the air temperatures, the water temperature also climbs to a pleasantly refreshing 16 to 17 degrees Celsius. Nature lovers who would like to experience the wild and romantic autumn on the English Channel or the Irish Channel can also book their accommodation for October.

Top 5 travel tips

1st Trebah Garden

Not far from Falmouth is one of the most beautiful gardens: "Trebah Garden". Here you will find peace, idyll and the most diverse plant species, such as daffodils, magnolias and hydrangeas. One of the highlights is certainly the Koi pond, the waterfall or the Rhododendron hill. The best way to start the day is in a café with a rich breakfast and then enjoy the day in this small oasis.

2. Visit to one of the most beautiful zoos in the world

In Newquay you have the unique chance to visit one of Britain's most beautiful zoos. Lions, lemurs or penguins are just some of the attractions here. Some of the animals can even be fed in private tours. Or are you trying to be a zookeeper for a day? At Newquay Zoo this and much more is possible!

3rd trip to St. Ives

One of the most beautiful places in Cornwall is certainly St. Ives. No matter where you look, everything looks as beautiful as from a film. In this place it is simply worth to let the surroundings have an effect on you. But St. Ives also offers many exciting excursion possibilities. Walk to the majestic cliffs, stroll to the wonderful harbour or marvel at the exhibits in the sculpture museum!

4. Symbolic place Land's End

If you're in Cornwall, you can't get past Land's End. It is a symbolic place that marks the western end of the British mainland. It is, by the way, also the beginning of one of the greatest challenges on Great Britain: the hike from Land's End to John o' Groats, a distance of about 1400 kilometres. If you want to tackle the whole or just a part of the hike and need a suitable starting point, simply book one of the many holiday apartments in Cornwall, holiday homes, apartments or lofts on Holidu!

5th excursion to the tidal island St. Michael's

A romantic and exciting walk promises to be the excursion to the tidal island St. Michael's Mount. The place is a real insider tip, only few tourists visit this place! Time for an undisturbed stay, during which you should not miss the castle and the chapel on the hill. By the way, the castle was shown in some famous movies, for example Dracula! If you are interested in the castles and historic buildings in the surrounding area, the "Touringpass" is also available, with which you can visit many sights free of charge after receiving them.
