Interesting Holiday Ideas in Other Areas of Cornwall
- Holiday Houses in Cornwall
We have a selection of holiday accommodation in other beautiful places in this county which might be of interest to you; we change the holiday homes featured periodically.
We have picked out iconic locations on the Helford river, a beachside holiday property in Porthtowan on the north coast halfway between St Ives and Newquay, spacious properties with amazing sea views near Padstow, a traditional cottage near Polperro and an ultra-modern house on the Carrick Roads near Falmouth.

St Ives, Cornwall is a seaside town in the far west of the county. Over the last 150 years it has been both a popular holiday destination and an internationally renowned school of painting, growing from its origins as a small fishing village.
