That traditional family holiday option of taking a cottage in Cornwall is proving so popular this year that it will soon be too late to find one for high summer.

Whether it's the rise in mortgage rates or the decline in sterling, the Brits have opted to holiday at home in large numbers this year. According to a new search service from the popular web site, there are now only six cottages sleeping 5 or more people available for the first week in August. In a popular hotspot? No - within 30 miles of St Ives. That's most of Cornwall!

The new "Find and Book" search at brings together availability from many leading cottage agencies like Classic Cottages, Helpful Holidays, West Cornwall Cottage Holidays etc. For the first time people can enter their preferred place and date, and find results from lots of sources. While there is still good availability outside school holidays, the message for families wanting to visit in August is clear - Get your skates on!

The site features over 150 independent holiday cottage agencies across the UK, enabling people to find the local specialists for any area. Established in 2004, it assists over half a million unique visitors per year.
