Set against rugged landscapes and dramatic coastlines, Cornwall will surely take your breath away. This scenic county settles on the southwestern tip of England and is home to charming coastal villages. Witness the land meeting the sky at Brown Willy, the highest reachable point in Cornwall. If you’re not keen on climbing hills, you can watch the romantic sunset from Bodmin Moor with the soaring peak as a picturesque backdrop. The best way to conclude your trip is by visiting Land’s End, a momentous destination perched at the end of Cornwall’s peninsula where the land ends and the sea begins. Make sure to snap a photo with the famous Land’s End marker to complete your journey.

A day trip won’t suffice to traverse Cornwall. Browse through this list of the top long-term rentals in Cornwall, UK, to make the most of your stay.

We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) host status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, decor, availability of dates, and long-term stay rules and regulations. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on July 09, 2024.
