Reasons to Buy a Holiday Home in Cornwall in 2022

January 21, 2022

Has the new year got you dreaming of holiday homes by the sea? Boasting 300 miles of coastline, exciting outdoor activities and the most delicious food, it’s easy to see why so many buyers decide to purchase a holiday home in Cornwall and escape to this beautiful part of the world. Second place in Rightmove’s most searched for areas in 2021, here are some of the reasons owning a holiday home in Cornwall could be a great move.

Year-round holiday destination

Benefitting from 1,500 hours of sunshine each year, Cornwall’s subtropical climate results in some of the mildest and sunniest weather in the UK.  With all this warm weather, Cornwall makes an enticing destination for holiday homes by the sea, rivalling its popular European counterparts such as Spain, France and Portugal. This coupled with the rise in UK staycations following the Covid-19 Pandemic, many more of us are enjoying the convenience of holidaying within the UK. So, whether you’re looking to purchase a second home or investment property, the sunny shores of Cornwall certainly won’t disappoint.

Better quality of life

If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Cornwall makes the ideal destination for a coastal retreat, with plenty of wellbeing benefits. Studies show that the closer you live to the sea, the healthier you are – with the fresh and calming sea air creating the perfect conditions for an active and enjoyable lifestyle. Not only do you have the gentle calming splendour of the waves, but research also shows that sea air actually accelerates your body’s ability to store oxygen and increase serotonin, the happy hormone, allowing you to feel more energised, relaxed and happy.


Lending itself to the great outdoors, Cornwall is the perfect place to pick up a new hobby or sport which can be as relaxing or action-packed as you like! Many of our developments are located close to some of the UK’s best golf courses including the breathtaking Trevose Golf and Country Club, adjacent to our homes on the coast at Treglos. Cornwall also offers an abundance of clifftop walking trails, providing the ideal leisurely weekend activity packed with stunning views. If you did want to be waterside, there’s plenty of fishing, sailing and sea swimming, not to mention Cornwall’s status as the UK’s top surfing destination – the opportunities are truly endless!

World-class food

With a huge variety of places to eat out and many local businesses to support, Cornwall’s food offering flourishes all year round. With fishing and farming making up a large part of the economy in Cornwall, the county is renowned for its fresh local produce and delicious seafood, often caught on nearby fishing boats and served the very same day. If you’re wanting a fine dining experience, why not visit one of Cornwall’s 41 Michelin starred restaurants, seven of which are located in Padstow, crowned ‘culinary capital of the world’ 2021 and home to our exclusive new development, The Padstow Collection. If you’re in search of a variety of cuisines, Falmouth offers an eclectic mix of culinary wonders from tasty Vietnamese inspired noodles at the popular independent PhoBar to delicious French cuisine at La Peniche, a floating restaurant with harbour views.


With an investment property in Cornwall, not only will you own a holiday home for yourself and your loved ones to escape to, but you could also make a healthy profit by letting it out. If the Cornish lifestyle is pulling at your heartstrings, investing in property here will lower your personal holidaying costs and provide a brilliant opportunity to maximise returns on the investment when you’re not there.
