Holidays in West Cornwall

There is almost an embarrassment of riches for the visitor to choose from when looking at holiday cottages in West Cornwall. With its extraordinary variety of landscapes and coastline, as well as its proud history and cultural heritage, you won't be disappointed.

With many superb beaches to enjoy, including five with the coveted Blue Flag status, it is easy to see why so many people associate this part of the world with sun, sea, sand and, of course, surf. There is, however, so much more on offer when contemplating self catering holidays in West Cornwall.

West Cornwall is home to popular destinations such as MarazionPenzanceCarbis Bay and St Ives, which are all worth a visit. From the iconic St Michael's Mount to the breath taking Minack Theatre as featured in our blog, you wont be short of things to do while self catering in West Cornwall.

Things to do in West Cornwall

Days out

With such an abundance of stunning sights in West Cornwall, you'll be spoilt for choice when choosing where to visit while holidaying here. St Michael's Mount, The Minack Theatre, and St Ives harbour are just a few of the enthralling places on offer. The many golden sandy beaches that West Cornwall boasts are perfect for topping up the tan. For something a little more energetic, boat trips, fishing excursions and water sports are available. Museums and art galleries provide an equally enjoyable day out, with world famous exhibitions at the Tate St Ives and the Barbara Hepworth museum within easy reach.

With the bustling coastal towns of St Ives, Mousehole and Marazion within close proximity of one another, you can be sure to find somewhere to provide everything you need to the perfect family day out. 

Walking

Cornwall's spectacular scenery provides the perfect backdrop for exploring. The coastal paths which hug the rugged cliffs offer breath taking sea views, while walking inland you can enjoy the many nature reserves, ancient stone circles and woodland, for which Cornwall is renowned.

Art & heritage

Famous for its quality of light, the area has long been a haven for artists and there are many galleries to be found wherever you go. There are also many gardens to enjoy; the mild climate will often let plants flourish here which you won’t find anywhere else in the country. For those wanting to dig a little deeper, there is also an amazing mining and maritime heritage which has done much to shape the county and its people as well as, it could be argued, the rest of the world.

Just spent a lovely week at the Blue Door Barn. The barn conversion is very good. Location is perfect for a nice relaxing time. Access to the property a little daunting but expected as the barn is tucked away. A good holiday, well worth the long journey.

Beautiful idyllic holiday, accommodation was very comfortable, the hosts were lovely and very helpful would definitely stay here again.

The blue door barn was very well equipped, very clean and very pretty. The track leading down to the property is steep and very narrow but was better when it was all cut back on our last day.

Blue door barn is a lovely place to stay,very clean and comfortable,nicely decorated and furnished Very quiet and relaxing, This was a second visit and would definitely return again.

This property is a picture-postcard barn conversion perfect for a couple who are either very happy to self-cater in the evenings or alternatively are happy to drive to get to restaurants etc. There is a quite a narrow, steep track to access the property. The barn is in a really quiet, country location. The hosts live on site in the adjacent buildings and are lovely. They only bother you if you've asked for assistance with something. The property is full of great little touches and the owners have really thought about how to maximize the available space. The outside area is a quite small and unfortunately looses the sun early in the evening. We weren't unfortunatley blessed with the best weather during our stay but there are books, a puzzle and a Sky Box to entertain you! You will be within easy reach of some great walking - particularly coastal walks - and also some lovely hostelries - we particularly enjoyed the food at the Victoria Inn in Perranuthnoe.

A great location for a peaceful stay. Hosts were considerate and helpful. I would have no hesitation in booking again.

The property was well equiped and modern with good heating and plenty of hot water. However we did not find the bed comfortable it is very soft so did not sleep well. Although the heating was good the property felt damp and some evidence of mould on the walls in bedroom. The location is very quiet and peaceful. However the footpath to the river in the description is not accessible there is no safe pleasant walk from the property given the nature of the roads.

Reply from Aspects Holidays

Thank you for your review. We were glad to see that you found the property to be well equipped and modern. We were sorry to see that you found the mattress to be too soft for your liking, they can be a tricky thing to get perfect for everyone, as everybody has different tastes when it comes to mattresses, but we will certainly monitor any future feedback we may receive about this. We do apologise if there had been signs of damp and mould. With the traditional materials used in a lot of buildings here and Cornwall being more humid and close to the sea, properties can be more susceptible to damp, especially when compared to more modern buildings. This is not something that we have had reported at this property before, so hopefully should be something that can easily be rectified; thank you for bringing this to our attention. Unfortunately, the local government have had to temporarily close the mentioned footpath due to landslides and we have removed this from the description until this has been made safe and reopened by the local authorities. We hope that you still enjoyed it here and that you'll return to Cornwall again soon. Ben, Customer Services

Lovely property everything was very good.
