Why Self Catering in Cornwall?
Cornwall, the most South Westerly county in England is a popular destination for those seeking a self catering holiday, many returning year after year. With over 300 miles of coastline offering some spectacular views and an abundance of beautiful sandy beaches it is a great place for a holiday, particularly in the warmer summer season. Take in the rugged Atlantic coast, popular with surfers, with Newquay amongst the most popular destinations or visit the villages and harbours of places like Padstow and St Ives to see the fisherman land their daily catch. The southern coast is more peaceful with towns like Polperro, St Austell and Mevagissey offering tourists a welcoming atmosphere.
