Today

Today, it remains a true Cornish, family run business.

There has been many changes, from the on-going renovation of existing properties to the conversion of the farm buildings. A total of 14 properties are currently operated as self-catering cottages, all offering the flexibility of any day arrival/departure.

We all worry about what to expect when going away, that's why we work hard to make sure our properties won't let you down, if there is anything you need we are on-site so you can make the most out of your stay in Cornwall.

We look forward to welcoming you to Wooldown Holiday Cottages and hope you enjoy it here as much as we do.
