Cottages in Cornwall with log burners

14th October 2019

Hunker down this winter in front of a log fire watching the ocean from the comfort of your sofa

There’s nothing quite like sitting around a crackling fire, watching the waves roll in and having some well deserved family time with your loved ones. Beach Retreats offer a variety of holiday homes from cosy cottages for two and large houses for friends and extended family, all with log fires. Here are some of our favourites.


Brackenbank, Whitsand Bay

Sleeps 5

Perched on Tregonhawke Cliff, high above the beach and sea below, Brackenbank is a chic chalet made for romantic escapes and family holidays. The beach below is a wide, dramatic arc of coast, perfect for those blustery winter walks.

The open plan living space within the property has stunning panoramic views across Whitsand Bay, perfect for curling up in front of the fire on a stormy winters day.

When the nights draw in, make the most of the stunning log burner at our Mawgan Porth luxury bolthole. Set in a sweeping bay on north Cornwall’s rugged coast, Panorama fuses haute design and stylish interiors with beach inspired features to create the perfect home from home for families, small groups and design-aficionados.

With a bird’s eye view of Mawgan Porth, the cliff top abode boasts a south-facing glass facade, inviting in copious amounts of natural light, while offering breath-taking panoramic views from the top floor open-plan living area. Take a bracing walk down to the beach, just 800 metres away.

Windrush, Holywell Bay

Sleeps 8

What’s better than the sound, smell and warming glow of an open fire after an afternoon walk on a Cornish beach? Guests staying at Windrush are just 500 metres from Holywell Bay, as seen on screen in the latest BBC One Poldark series.

On the beach, you can explore the fascinating grotto-like Holywell Cave with its calcium deposits, and at low tide, discover an old Argentinian coaster just offshore. Wander the sand dunes, some of which are 60 feet in height, and if you’re traveling with your other half, the dunes also provide a romantic setting to watch the sun go down.

Lizard, Widemouth Bay

Sleeps 6

With a beach as your back garden (literally), Lizard in Widemouth Bay is the ideal home to relax and unwind in this winter. In a quiet location with the beach right outside, Lizard gives you truly exceptional beach living.

Lizard is located at Atlantic View, a small development of six eco-houses which have been designed to combine state-of-the-art green technology with contemporary luxury and beautiful interiors.

Harbourside Cottage, Boscastle

Sleeps 2

A cosy cottage for 2, Harbourside Cottage is located in the centre of Boscastle opposite the river, just a 300 metre walk to where the river meets the ocean.

The pace of life in this pretty village is blissfully relaxed, so for those arriving in the winter, there’s nothing better than enjoying a romantic evening for two in front of a crackling fire with a bottle of two.
