National Trust Holiday Cottages
National Trust Cottages
With 89 cottages in Cornwall to rent and 33 cottages in Devon to rent, the south west of England enjoys some of the most interesting and unusual properties in the National Trust's unique property collection. The collection consists of over 330 individual properties, all of which are to be found in outstanding locations throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
From the chocolate box thatched cottages, like Forge Cottage in Devon, which sleeps 4. Situated in Branscombe village near Seaton and one of a handful of cottages owned by the Trust in the village. Forge Cottage is well placed for exploring an extensive network of footpaths through the surrounding woodlands, cliffs and beaches.
To the seclusion of the 19th century Coombe Cottage (Sleeps 4) at Peppercombe, near Clovelly in Devon. Coombe Cottage is situated in an elevated position with superb views from the back of the cottage across the valley to the sea in the distance. This very attractive 19th century cottage also retains many original features including a steep winding staircase and the small Victorian sloping front garden.
To a the more unusual like the often photographed tower at Trelissick in Cornwall. The Tower which sleeps 2 was built in 1865 formed from an earlier dovecote. It is set amongst beautiful parkland and woodland with stunning views across the water to Falmouth and the open sea. A five mile circular walk through beech and oak woodland follows the shores of the Fal around the Trelissick Estate.
Each property is unique, from thatched cottages, former farmhouses and manors to apartments in stately homes like the Turret Apartment (Sleeps 2) in the grand Charlecote Park in Warwickshire overlooking the landscaped grounds by the river Avon and a deer park laid out by Lancelot Brown.
