Self catering holidays in Cornwall are the best option for families because they suit a family's needs. Children need feeding and forever want drinks, meals and snacks and this can prove expensive if buying from shops and restaurants. By supplying your own needs and cooking in your holiday home, costs can be little more than they would when not on holiday and children can help themselves to drinks and fruit at any time.


The other aspect of buying in food is that it is easier to cater for a family's needs and purchase only the foods that members of the family enjoy. This reduces waste and keeps everyone happy.


Holidays are meant to be about having a good time and if you have hired a cottage of a comfortable standard it may be nicer than your own home and have certain facilities such as a swimming pool that are a treat for the children.


A well equipped holiday cottage will have a washing machine, tumble dryer, freezer, dishwasher and perhaps additional kitchen gadgets that make life as easy and normal as possible. It will not matte rif the children get soaking wet paddling or dirty sailing because clothes can be washed without too much effort and ready for the next day.


All the large towns in Cornwall have major supermarkets, often open 24 hours a day to buy groceries for your holiday. Some small villages have general stores.


Even though your holiday is self catering, you can still choose to go out for meals if you would like to go somewhere special, for example a Rick Stein restaurant in Falmouth or Padstow.  Self catering also means that you can pack a picnic for the family when going out for the day.

Cornwall is the place for holiday cottages in the sunshine, especially during the summer.

There are also plenty of campsites for the tenting and caravanning fraternity. These are often in secluded peaceful locations. For example Calloose Caravan and Camping Park. Secluded family holiday park close to St Ives in Cornwall UK, set in a sheltered suntrap valley with its own stream.
