Cornwall Living 2017

Discover Cornwall

Helpful Holidays is the award-winning self-catering cottage agency offering over 260 of the finest holiday homes in Cornwall. 

From Land’s End to the beautiful River Tamar on the Cornish border, each cottage has been hand-picked and is regularly inspected to ensure it’s a great place for a happy holiday.

Established over 30 years ago in the heart of the West Country, Helpful Holidays has been awarded Feefo’s Gold award for outstanding customer service and was selected for a Sunday Times Travel award, praised for providing ‘a simple service done superbly well’.

The friendly team are happy to answer any queries and guide you to cottages that best match your dreams. They’ve visited them all and know them inside out, plus they all live and work in the wonderful West Country and love sharing their special ‘secret’ places to visit. The Walk West Cornwall festival is organised by Helpful Holidays to help people discover the delights of Cornwall, from wild foraging to the industrial heritage.

From big sociable houses accommodating up to 15 people, just right for family gatherings and special celebrations, to cosy little waterside cottages for two in secluded Cornish fishing villages, there is something for all tastes and pockets.

In Mousehole, pretty granite cottages combining nautical history with modern comfort nestle around the horseshoe harbour, perfect for watching the boats drift in and out. On the north coast around Padstow, Helpful Holidays offers a fine selection of cottages, well placed for dining out at seafood restaurants and discovering a different golden beach every day. And, of course, there are lots of cottages, many welcoming dogs, within yards of the 630-mile invigorating South West Coast Path, from which the seascapes will enthral you.

All the cottages are clearly pictured and described, together with customer reviews, both in the colour brochure and at, where you can book and pay securely online. The Helpful Holidays team is dedicated to providing excellent, tell-it-like-it-is customer service, so you can book your Cornish holiday cottage, confident that it will be everything you expect and more. What’s more, they offer cottages in Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
