Cornish Self-Catering Holidays

A holiday with a large family can often be difficult to organise especially if travelling abroad. Why not think about a holiday a little closer to home which might be easier to organise and just as fun.

 A holiday in Cornwall is often a fantastic experience especially staying in a beautiful self catering Cornish holiday cottage. There are many things you can do in Cornwall from going to one of the great beaches or visiting some historical museums. If you want to visit a traditional seaside village in Cornwall then Polperro is a fantastic place to visit which is not far along the coast from Looe which is another great village to visit. Polperro however looks like a village that has hardly been touched by the modern world. There are many enchated small cottages each one unmistakably the work of a Cornish fisherman somewher in history.  

Polperro is not only beautiful but a great place to find out some history about the local area. You can visit the smugglers museum which brings history to life with many different things to look at and enjoy with your family. Visit the smugglers cellars where you can see the displays of local crafs and fishermen's smocks. Eating in Polperro is also a fantastic experience, there are many different restaurants to choose from. Polperro's fish is said to be the best in the UK so why not find a nice restaurant along the harbour and enjoy!

If you are interested in a self cattering Cornish cottage then visit looeandpolperro.co.uk where they have many different cottages on offer. They also have many other Cornish letting properties on offer within the local area.
