Now Cornwall is a popular spot with holidaymakers, looking to get away from the city and experience some of the most beautiful nature that Britain has to offer. There are no shortage of extraordinary places to stay in this magical country, so take a look at some of the gems that we have found and get planning your get-away in this wild and beautiful county…
The Tresanton, St Mawes
The Tresanton on the South Coast is certainly an extraordinary place to stay. It stands in a striking location on the headland at St Mawes overlooking the bay and boasts 31 luxurious rooms.
The hotel has a fabulous restaurant, bar, cinema and terraces overlooking the sea and is decorated throughout with a selection of exquisite antiques and Cornish art.
Luxury Self Catering Cottages in Port Isaac
There are some fantastic luxury self-catering cottages in Port Isaac and indeed across the county. May’s Cottage in Port Isaac is a really beautiful luxury cottage; newly refurbished it is every inch the perfect quintessential Cornish Cottage. It has exposed brickwork, luscious wool carpets and a real fireplace all sure to keep you cosy.
It is fresh, bright and clean throughout from the deep, comfy sofas, to the tasteful antiques to the modern details such as a Bose iPod dock. Staying there feels like being in a home from home.
Traditional Gypsy Caravans, Tregaminion
Nestled in the beautiful Cornish countryside are two traditional Gypsy Caravans, available to book for short or long stays. Each caravan is truly a romantic’s dream, with double bed, wood burning stove and a table lamp.
Not only are they decorated in traditional style but they carefully conceal all mod cons too, so you will find mobile charger sockets and an electric kettle, to make your stay a comfortable one. Romany Gypsies built these extraordinary caravans for Romany Gypsies and one of them, Elle, even travelled to Appleby Fair. You will be a short trip from lovely Cornish Pubs, restaurants and beaches.

There are 37 rooms there, which range from the standard size, ‘Just Right’, up to the largest rooms ‘Indulgent’, all of which are spectacular. It has a great restaurant and bar and lovely terraced area, where one can sit and enjoy the beautiful views out across the sea.
