Seaside cottages in Land's End, Cornwall


Most British people are aware of Land's End and where it is because there is always someone walking, running or completing a challenge of some kind that takes from one iconic landmark to another from John O Groats in Scotland to Land's End in south west Cornwall.

When holidaymakers venture to Land's End, they discover a rocky coast with an offshore lighthouse perched atop of a string of rocks at sea, a winding coastal path, the new visitor centre and some very nice Cornish cottages to rent for a seaside break.

Although Land's End does not have its own beach, there are some magnificent beaches nearby. For example, Sennan Cove has a half moon of white sand set in a sheltered bay. There are plenty of other quiet unspoilt beaches in these remote reaches of Cornwall, all delightful for budget priced family self-catering seaside holidays.

Cornish holiday cottages are quite lovely. Many are year round holiday homes, often private homes that are let for selected weeks to defer the holiday home owner's expenses. They are furnished for comfort and one can expect them to be equipped with all necessary utensils for a good holiday in Cornwall.
