Why visit Cornwall with Sawday’s?

We look for something a bit different in our holiday cottages in Cornwall, as we do with all our destinations. Every place you’ll see on Sawday’s has been inspected & selected by us, in person, so that we could check it not just for quality, but for the character and spirit that make it a special place, not another identikit holiday apartment. We want you to love the place you’re staying as much as you love holidays in Cornwall themselves.

Where to stay in Cornwall

We love wandering the coasts and moors on the hunt for the best places to stay in Cornwall and over the years we’ve found that you can’t really go wrong wherever you land in this great county. For the (slightly more) urbanites, there’s artsy St Ives, funky Newquay, trendy Fowey and Rick Stein’s clutch of places in foodie Padstow, with Rock right across the bay. But you’re never far from natural beauty, with the wild, rambling scenery of the Lizard Peninsula, the Roseland and Penwith Heritage Coasts and storied Bodmin Moor. It’s this fabulous mix of everything from extreme sports to cream teas that makes Cornwall holidays so rewarding.
