As the temperatures drop and the beaches become more deserted, Cornwall is the perfect choice for a quiet and cosy winter getaway. We have put together a list of our ultimate cosy cottages for a winter break in Cornwall.
Set in an awe-inspiring location in a Cornish cove, hence the name, Cove Cottage offers a peaceful break for a family of four. The garden room is the perfect storm watching spot, with its breathtaking views over the Atlantic Ocean, all while keeping cosy with the woodburner roaring.
Overlooking Lamorna Cove, Piran Cottage is the perfect winter retreat. The traditional electric Aga is perfect for rustling up a hearty meal after a day of walking the South West Coast Path and spectacular cliff top views can be enjoyed from both directions.
Cornish for unique, St Breca is certainly that! This luxurious property is stylishly furnished while keeping a rustic design. The open fire is perfect to snuggle up in front of on chilly nights. If you want to breathe in the fresh Cornish air, then you can sit around the outdoor firepit and toast marshmallows!
The Barn at Alsia Mill
Nestled in the heart of the Cornish countryside, The Barn at Alsia Mill is a dreamy hideaway for couples. Rustic on the outside with luxurious touches on the inside, and private gardens to explore, this romantic escape allows you to unwind away from busy city life.
This quaint stone cottage is an idyllic setting for your holiday in Cornwall. Waverley Cottage is nestled in the pretty hamlet of Burlawn, just a short drive from Rock beach. Offering the ideal cosy hideaway for the whole family, not forgetting those with four paws, the picturesque Camel Valley cycling and walking trail is minutes away too!
As the name suggests, enjoying wonderful views from its elevated position in the Perranporth sand dunes, The View is a modern property for up to eight. The woodburner and underfloor heating make for the perfect winter getaway and your pooch will love running on the golden sands of Perranporth beach.
A perfectly cosy bolthole in idyllic Mousehole, Pilot's Cottage offers all you need for a winter break in Cornwall. This charming traditional cottage is just moments from the harbour, which is illuminated with twinkling lights in December and features quirky creatures such as the Loch Ness Monster!
The Sea Hoss
Perched right on the harbour, The Sea Hoss is a charming property from which to explore the delights of South Cornwall at a quieter time of year. The cosy cottage sleeps four and offers stunning harbour views to curl up in front of and a luxurious roll-top bath where you can soak the evening away gazing out to sea after a coast path ramble.
Located in the heart of delightful Mullion village, Mullion Cottage is a traditional Cornish bolthole to hunker down in this winter. Stroll through the pretty village to the traditional thatched pub, Old Inn, and cosy up by their fire while tucking into some delicious pub grub!
