Boutique Cottages in North Cornwall

Out and About

A land rich in industrial heritage, awash with legend and adorned with some of the most spectacular scenery imaginable, North Cornwall is as dramatic as it is beautiful. A true haven, it calls to the wild-at-heart as much as it does those looking for somewhere quiet to relax for a few days or a few weeks. Regularly featured in films for its raw beauty, its little wonder why this area has captured so many hearts and inspired so many minds.

From the surfers’-favourite, Bude to the myth-soaked Tintagel to the foodie haven of Padstow, North Cornwall truly has something for everyone. Bury your toes in the sand on one of the many jaw-dropping beaches and coves or swap sandals for stilettos with a night of fine dining. If there’s nothing more invigorating than a fair breeze and salty spray, take to the water for a sail before returning to your luxury retreat.

However you envisage your perfect holiday, our boutique cottages grant you the freedom to spend each day exactly as you please, whilst revelling in the highest level of comfort and convenience.

From posh to pasty, you can enjoy all manner of delicious dining experiences in North Cornwall. Covered in rich, fertile soil and lapped by sapphire seas, fresh produce is churned out with every season, gracing farmers’ markets, delis and restaurants with the tastiest, cleanest goods.

Located in unique locations, our luxury boltholes in North Cornwall are never far from a traditional pub or award-winning restaurant. Led by some of the most talented chefs in the country, you can tuck into expertly crafted dishes and swill Cornish wine under radiant sunshine or the silvery light of the moon.

For the classic seaside experience, munch vinegar-dowsed fish and chips on the seafront, or for something extra special, gather up blankets, cushions and a hamper full to bursting with treats for an unforgettable clifftop picnic. Of course, if you fancy trying out a new favourite Cornish recipe, meals at your home-from-home will be a total pleasure too.

Whether you are savouring a cup of Tregothnan tea from a sumptuous fireside sofa in your Boutique Retreat or sipping a Cornish ale in a waterside pub as sea shanties echo around the walls, North Cornwall offers opportunity a-plenty for an atmospheric bevvy. Tear yourself away from your luxury cottage if you can and head out to see what’s on offer.

One of the best ways to escape the rhythm of everyday life; setting an agenda of hopping from café to café will reward tea-seekers and coffee-lovers with a belly full of goodness. A particularly fairy-tale spot, Cardinham Woods Café is a gingerbread cottage serving a range of delicious drinks, atmospheric whatever the weather.

To dig your toes in the sand as you sip on a zingy cocktail, make tracks to the UK’s only beach bar, the dog-friendly Watering Hole at Perranporth. For artisan coffees and fresh smoothies, give the Jam Jar Café in Newquay a try, or for a blast from the past, visit the Jamaica Inn in Bolventor and the 12th Century Crown Inn in Lanlivery, one of the oldest pubs in Cornwall.

Whether you are at your happiest browsing galleries, gardens, historical sites or simply relishing spending time in the great outdoors, North Cornwall has something for everyone. Famed for its wild and untamed spirit, the best way to take in the scenery is by joining up with the South West Coast Path. Meandering its way along the coast, you can dip in and out of rocky crooks, ride high on the top of cliffs and watch out for the amazing wildlife who also call this part of Cornwall home, including seabirds, seals, dolphins and basking sharks.

For a pick-up in pace, there all sorts of activities you can take part in to suit all ages and abilities in North Cornwall. An absolute must, the 18-mile Camel Trail repurposes a disused railway line between Wenfordbridge, Bodmin, Wadebridge and Padstow, creating the ideal platform for families to cycle together and take in the views. In the summer months, swimming costumes and towels are essentials for refreshing dips in the glistening North Cornish waters; pay a visit to one of the many life-guarded beaches and enjoy.
