Five properties closest to the beach

July 8, 2016

It’s no secret that we love the beach here at Beach Retreats. And you can’t get closer to the beach than these five properties.

Coast 2, Porth

2 Coast, Porth

Distance from the beach: 0 metres!

When we say ‘the walk to the beach’ this barely ranks as a walk! All that separates 2 Coast from the sand on Porth Beach is a lovely private terrace and stretch of lawn. Make space on the private terrace for BBQs, grab your board from the lockable surf store and roll onto the beach from this contemporary ground floor apartment. Two bedrooms, sleeps six.

Book your stay at 2 Coast, Porth.

Atlantic View Widemouth Bay

Atlantic View, Widmeouth Bay

Distance from the beach: 10 metres

Away from the crowds but with direct access onto the beach and Widmeouth Bay’s iconic Black Rock and rockpools out front, Atlantic View is hard to beat in terms of location. But it rules in terms of luxury and eco-credentials too. Think high-spec interiors, full-width balconies, large-ensuite rooms, open-plan living and log burners in each of the six self-catering holiday lodges, all of which are completely reliable on renewable energy.

Life is better at The Beach, consisting of five contemporary apartments looking down onto Porthtowan just metres below.
