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 unwind for a long weekend or even a little while longer. 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. Take a wander to one of the many jaw-dropping beaches in pursuit of golden sands and hidden coves or put on your finest garments for a night of Michelin-star dining accompanied with a heavenly view. If you find nothing more invigorating than a salty sea breeze, take to the water for a sail before returning to your dream luxury retreat in North Cornwall.

However you envisage your perfect holiday, our boutique cottages promise the most exquisite setting to make magical staycation moments in a county unlike any other. 


From freshly caught seafood to the short-crusted national emblem also known as the humble Cornish pasty, discover the finest eateries in North Cornwall, where a heavenly sphere of luxury dining experiences await. For those seeking to uncover the county's Michelin star collection, North Cornwall promises a considerable array of world-class restaurants.

Surrounded by sixty-six acres of private, emerald countryside, the Michelin green star Coombeshead Farm promises a weekly-changing menu guided by their own, carefully nurtured ingredients, along with a farm shop, where you can peruse and take home an array of produce grown on site. Make way to the vibrant harbour town of Padstow, where Michelin starred Paul Ainsworth at No.6. ensures stellar sea views and an ever-changing modern menu centred on British fare. For seafood with flair, Outlaw’s New Road in Port Isaac pays an indulgent homage to Cornwall’s surrounding waters with delicately presented à la carte and tasting menus in a homely seaside setting.

Whether you’re dreaming of uncovering wholesome local farmers’ markets in charming Cornish market towns, or in pursuit of innovative culinary dishes whilst wistfully gazing over sapphire seas, seek your perfect luxury cottage in Cornwall to accompany the experience.

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.
