Whatever your idea of a great holiday, we're confident that the west of Cornwall is your ideal destination. Of course, we are a little biased, we live here because we love it here. At the Cornish Way we offer you superb self-catering accommodation personally managed by us on behalf of a select group of owners and their lucky guests. Whether you’re looking for the perfect romantic escape, a large luxury family pad or a traditional cottage full of character we offer a unique collection of holiday homes matched with the kind of intimate knowledge of the area and properties only a local specialist can provide.

While most businesses want to grow, to take over the world, at The Cornish Way we decided from the outset that we want to be focussed, to do what we do extremely well for a select group of guests and property owners. Quality over quantity. We provide luxury and character holiday cottages and specialise in the far west of Cornwall. We care and want you to have the best holiday possible working with you to provide whatever it is you'd like to make your experience perfect. No need to trawl through dozens of websites. If you’re planning to come to the far west, we are sure you will find the ideal place among our bespoke collection of cottages. Even if we can’t find a fit we would love to chat and are always more than happy to point you in the right direction. We’re sure you’ll come back and stay with us another time. Please call or email and we will always find the time to try and help.

Holidays by the sea were a part of many people's childhoods. Now, as grown-ups, lots of us lead hectic lives and often know we need to escape and recharge our batteries, but don't have time to plan it. We have been there, and we're determined to make it easy for you to come and enjoy the relaxing holiday you need, in this breath taking part of our county, the far west of Cornwall. We only look after gorgeous houses in the far west, because that's the area we are passionate about, and know intimately well. If you would like a plan of activities for your holiday let us know what you're looking for. Whether booking a surf lesson, dog sitting, a yoga class, personal chef, just ask. In fact, anything you can think of give us a try and we will always do what we can to make your perfect holiday happen.


The Cornish Way was established 2010 when, having been letting New Forge we got a knock on the door from a neighbour asking if we would look after his cottage too. The answer was yes and The Cornish Way was born. We still look after that first property, The Old Dairy, for Mark and Fiona.

Since then The Cornish Way has continued to develop organically, by word of mouth. Originally operating from a kitchen table with a laptop and a headful of ideas we have moved on and now work from a converted dairy overlooking Mounts Bay. With the help of a small focussed team we are proud to look after a growing collection of cottages for their owners and lucky guests.

I am Seb Blakemore and am lucky enough to live in West Cornwall and run The Cornish Way together with Lowenna and of course the office dog, Baloo

I came down to the far west for a two month sabbatical. That was 12 years ago. I never went back. I have spent over three decades working for property and holiday companies from small agencies to large corporates so hopefully have picked up a thing or two. I have experienced being both an owner and a guest and am always happy to help so whether you’re looking to buy, let or come down on holiday, do get in touch.
