From traditional country cottages to modern seaside apartments, Aspects Holidays offers a wide range of self-catering holiday homes across Cornwall. Most of our properties are located in west Cornwall, particularly in and around Penzance. Our friendly staff are based locally, meaning that our customers and cottages receive the individual attention they deserve. Come and explore this beautiful part of the country.

“We successfully organised our own beach clean at Hayle beach and will continue to organise future beach cleans in different areas. We have recently become a corporate sponsor for the Cornwall Seal Research Group too. Our next steps are to organise eco coffee cups and reusable water bottles for all of our staff (although many of us already use our own plastic-free alternatives) and to ensure gifts we give to guests are eco-friendly.
“We are eager to make more positive changes in 2019 as we continue to educate ourselves and visitors to Cornwall about the plastic problem, and the ways in which we can help save the planet together.”
