20 of the Most Charming Character Holiday Cottages

When you imagine a Cornish holiday cottage the chances are you picture the whitewashed cottages that cling to the hillsides of our picture postcard fishing villages, or sturdy granite farm buildings that look like they were built to survive anything the weather can throw at them. Think exposed beams, kitchens with flagstone floors and an Aga along with original stone fireplaces.

Character cottages really come into their own during the winter months. What could be more romantic than a stone cottage with a roaring open fire or woodburner as the wind and rain beat against the windows. That said many of our more traditional country properties come with fantastic gardens in which you can make the most of the summer weather.

Of course, for a home to have character doesn't mean it has to be too small to swing a pilchard in. Amongst our selected properties we have some grand old Victorian, Edwardian and Georgian vicarages and period townhouses, all offering a high level of refinement and all the creature comforts.
