Meet the Cornish Holiday Cottages team

At Cornish Holiday Cottages we offer a boutique portfolio of properties in the cosmopolitan marina town of Falmouth and the romantic ‘Du Maurier' setting of the Helford River and surrounding creek side locations.

Situated in the heart of Mawnan Smith village, our family business, founded in 1978 by Emily's Grandmother, Mrs Ruth Austen, works behind the scenes to provide the personal touches you need.

Breath-taking sea view apartments, tucked away waterside retreats, cosy home from homes and those with a touch of grandeur await you. Unlock the door to your dream cottage and you'll ease effortlessly into the break you deserve.

Indulge in what you fancy... thrills, discovery, nature, a log fire, the finest seafood, beaches, a walk with the dog, or simply fresh Cornish sea air... it's all on your doorstep. All you need to do is get here so your holiday can begin.

Our mission is to provide exceptional, bespoke customer service to both our guests and our holiday home owners with a portfolio of high quality cottages in the Falmouth and Helford River area, year round, with a knowledgeable team who exceed expectations.
