Next time you're planning a trip to Cornwall, consider a stay in one of our Par holiday cottages, located in and around a small harbour town, right on the edge of 'Clay Country' and roughly midway between St. Austell and Fowey.
On the doorstep of our Par holiday homes...
If you like walking you're in for a treat. First up are the sleepy lanes and footpaths of the Luxulyan Valley, a World Heritage Site. Within about an hour, you'll reach the Eden Project - expect hot, sticky rainforests, Mediterranean vineyards, a tummy-turning zip wire, top name musicians, children's entertainment and more!
Or follow the coastal path along to Fowey, taking in the beautiful Gribbin Peninsula, crowned with a striking red and white striped beacon and fringed with idyllic coves. Writer Daphne du Maurier spent much time here - perhaps you, too, will be inspired to pen your holiday adventure!
Or peddle along the Clay Trail Cycle Routes to the Wheal Martyn Museum, easily accessible from our Par holiday lets and a great place to find out about the region's 200-year-old mining history.
Other places of interest a few miles from our Par holiday rentals include the Lost Gardens of Heligan, an estate rich in wildlife and featuring a National Collection of camellias and rhododendrons. Not forgetting the port of Charlestown, famous for its amazing assortment of tall ships.
Spend a day on Par Sands Beach, backed by rolling sand dunes and over half a mile long - great for paddling, bathing and for walks with your faithful hound (dog friendly year round).
Round off your day relaxing at the local inn, offering quality ales, wide selection of food, children's play area and regular entertainment.
Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages to rent in or near Par.
