Cheapest Airbnb Cornwall

The cheapest Cornwall Airbnb is this small campsite located in mid-Cornwall.

It is described as peaceful and tranquil camping on a mostly undeveloped site surrounded by nature including fields, streams, lakes and wildlife. With no set pitches, you can pitch your tent wherever you like or rent one of their bell tents.

Local animals include wild geese, owls, hawks, buzzards, herons, jays, rabbits, foxes, badgers, field mice, miniature goats, chickens and ducks.

Closest To The Beach

Situated on the beach, this luxury 16th century, Cornish cottage couldn’t get any closer to the lapping waves at Gorran Haven.

This beachside cottage boasts traditional exposed stone walls and at low tide a sandy beach just a step away.

A Beach Penthouse

Fancy a penthouse overlooking Fistral Beach?

With incredible views, this upmarket penthouse overlooks Newquay’s Fistral Beach. It’s another property with floor to ceiling glass and is a short distance to surf culture bars, restaurants and shops. The area is famous for its surf and with a number of local surf schools, now is the chance to learn if you haven’t already.

How Pretty

How pretty is this romantic wooden cabin tucked into the hillside? Perched overlooking the white sands of Tregonhawke Beach, Whitsand Bay you can fall asleep to the lull of rolling waves beneath you.

With a small rustic track to take you directly onto the beach and a private wooden deck to enjoy the views, this is an idyllic place to spend some time.

A Chic Garden Space

Glamorous and cosy, this chic garden escape is beautifully decorated and has direct access to the Cornwall coastal path.  The stone cladding blends into the landscape which is a short distance from St Ives.

Ideal For Romance

If you’re looking for a romantic getaway in Cornwall, we think this hut looks fantastic. It’s rural, with great views, totally secluded in nature and with its own hot tub. What could be better?

A Very Rural Place

If that isn’t rural enough for you, how about this roundhouse with an enormous fourposter bed. Situated on a 100-acre organic farm, the roundhouse is an authentic, Iron Age reconstruction hut.

There is no wifi so is perfect for those looking for a rural, detox experience.

Off-Grid Treehouse

You could book this entirely off-grid treehouse in your own 7-acre field where the nearest owls nest if just 10 feet away.

Located on a 30-acre farm, this nature reserve has no paved walkways, no power points, no electricity or central heating.  Instead, you’ll find solar lighting & fairy lights, a wood burner, plenty of rope bridges, lakes, long walks and animals such as ponies and geese.

If you’re looking for an exceptional view high above the treeline surrounded by nature, this could be it.

An Ecofriendly Roundhouse

Is it possible to get more ecofriendly than the previous treehouse? We think so with this sumptuous 10 metre, strawbale roundhouse situated in your own private woods.

You have the chance to cook on a campfire in this eco-house situated in the hamlet of Kerris. There is a compost loo and a shower embedded amongst the trees.  There is full electricity in the house should you need to use it though.

This roundhouse is surrounded with plenty of wildlife, including badgers, rabbits, owls and buzzards.

An Unusual Place

On the outskirts of Marhamchurch near Bude, two showman’s wagons join a 17th century, underground bothy where you’ll find a living area and kitchen.

The two huts comprise a bedroom and bathroom but you also get a hot tub overlooking a meadow with a fire pit. It’s described as a honeymooner’s paradise and it’s not hard to see why.

Most Stylish

Just look at this idyllic, stylish space with sultry colours and a ton of light. Found in the harbour town of Mousehole, the Old Fish Cellar is over 300 years old although you wouldn’t know it from its boutique-style interior.

With a bespoke kitchen and a copper sink, funky lighting, retro workbenches and a delightful handcrafted window seat, you’d be forgiven if you didn’t leave its comforts during your stay.

Best Instagrammable View

If you want to make everyone jealous of your amazing holiday, you must stay at Cliff House which overlooks Crantock Beach. 

The house comes with 1 acre of gardens and private access to the beach and sea. If that isn’t enough, there’s an indoor swimming pool complete with bi-fold doors that open up onto the terrace where you’ll find a hot tub. There is also a small gym onsite!

Cute & Adorable

What makes this exclusive wooden roundhouse so cute and adorable? Maybe it’s the wooden exterior or the chic interior or maybe it’s the attention to detail, like the quirky porthole in the roof so you can see the stars.

With fairy lights, an internal wood stove for colder nights, al fresco dining, the fire bowl or the woodfired hot tub. Which is your favourite?

Dog Friendly

A beautiful barn conversion in a 17th Century building awaits you if you have dogs. What we liked here was the attention to doggy detail; a warm outdoor shower and area to hang up muddy outdoor gear.

If you stay here you’ll benefit from a lovely garden, a fire bowl, a private hot tub and a sauna.

Closest To Water

You can’t get much closer to the water than a lodge actually overhanging it.

With 4 double bedrooms, this lodge is found on family spa resort near Padstow. You get a hot tub and access to a heated, indoor pool, sauna, steam and fitness room as well as an onsite restaurant & bar.

Enviable For Large Families

All of the properties we’ve shown are enviable in some way but this collection of cottages with 12 bedrooms, pondside view, stone exterior and wooden balcony seem particularly aesthetically pleasing.

Trehill Cottage sits in 4 acres of grounds with a games room and is perfect for large families because it comes with an additional 4 cottages, an outdoor swimming pool and a football pitch.

Best Roof Top

Cornwall gets a significant amount of sunshine so why not stay somewhere where you can really benefit from it. Accommodation with a rooftop garden seems impressive especially as it has 180-degree views over the ocean.

The rooftop is fully decked with a hot tub and loungers whilst the local area also has a shared pool and sauna.

Most Relaxing

A private beach is a certain way to avoid the stress of going oceanside. So Tranquil is located on a privately-owned estate with its own private beach, accessed with a key.

Aside from the house being gorgeous it not only exudes quietness but gives you relaxation with a private hot tub & summerhouse. Just check out those views!

Funkiest Airbnb Cornwall

Here at Journey of a Nomadic Family, we love a funky getaway & this Disused Railway Carriage sparks an interesting conversation.

It’s called The Siphon & it’s a 60 foot long, off-grid railway carriage with a waterless toilet & only solar power.

There’s a fire pit for roasting marshmallows but most of all there’s lots of space to enjoy and with local rivers, plenty to explore. Local animals include foxes, badgers, deer, otters, squirrels, small mammals & loads of birds.
