With over 600 self-catering properties on its books, Aspects Holidays will lead you to the perfect last-minute break in Cornwall this summer.

Aspects Holidays began as a family business in 1989. Though they’ve been steadily adding gorgeous properties to their books ever since, the team remains small, friendly and dedicated to a personalised service. Many of its members have lived in Cornwall all their lives.

The local co-ordinators in St Ives, Hayle, Penzance, Newquay, Mevagissey and Bude are a reliable fountain of knowledge, about everything from advice on the ideal cottage to tips regarding the county’s best beaches.

They say: “We love where we live and we love what we do, so whether you are looking for a family-friendly holiday, a dog-friendly cottage or a hideaway for two, we know our way around and are here to help.”

The website is vibrant and easy-to-use, with enticing photography as well as pretty illustrations. There’s a great blog that will have you dreaming from your desk about Cornish holidays and several brilliant webcams dotted around the area to whet your appetite. And all information about collecting keys, payment, the company policy on pets and arrival and departure times can be accessed within the FAQs section of the site.

Here, we choose six of our favourite Aspects properties that are available for last-minute bookings.
