The Duchy aims to provide unique opportunities to stay in attractive period properties in stunning locations
The Duchy of Cornwall has a small number of luxury holiday cottages, which are housed in attractive period properties in beautiful locations. Holiday cottages are currently available in Cornwall, Wales and the Isles of Scilly.
The interiors are designed by Annabel Elliot and furnished with a mixture of antique and contemporary furniture. Where possible, recycled materials are used in new, creative ways and examples of this include light fittings made from glass bottles, lamp bases made from wallpaper factory rollers and coffee tables fashioned from old wooden chests.
The aim is to make Duchy of Cornwall Holiday Cottages as environmentally-friendly as possible with green electricity, renewable energy heating systems, recycling and composting facilities and logs from our own woods. The Duchy also promotes sustainable tourism which will positively contribute to the local economy, meeting the needs of visitors, businesses and local communities.
Some Duchy holiday cottages welcome up to two well-behaved dogs. Finishing touches include organic linen, Egyptian cotton sheets and welcome packs made up of local and fair trade products. Guests can also enjoy their own outdoor patio area with fully equipped BBQ and free wi-fi throughout.
