Luxury self-catering in Cornwall

Katy Peck

Long gone are the days where you needed to bring your own linen on your self-catering holiday in Cornwall, not to mention all manner of creature comforts.  Turning up to a log cabin in the woods, in the deepest darkest depths of the southwest to realise that you passed the nearest food shop 30 miles back…

Things have changed greatly, there is now a wealth of luxury accommodation in Cornwall, and things have come along way since the holidays in the late 80s that I remember of my own childhood holidays in Cornwall. Setting off before sunrise and being bundled into our Volvo estate and trundling west along the A303 watching the sun come up and the anticipation of what was ahead of our long journey.

Being the youngest in our family for seven years meant that I was the one nominated to be squeezed into the fold up leather seat in the back of the car facing out the rear window, with the family luggage, packed like building blocks without an inch to spare.

Our childhood was spent on holiday mainly on Daymer Bay, a sand dune beach located on the North Coast, just like my Mother’s own family holiday’s in the west in the 60s. These rose-tinted memories of halcyon days spent rock pooling and fishing in the River Camel’s estuary are amongst my favourite.

Its seems as though family traditions include holidaying habits, and on speaking with many of our regular guests with young children find that they themselves were once the children spending summers building sandcastles on Porthmeor beach.
