September Retreats


Warm waters, gentle swells, quiet beaches and rich sunsets… September in Cornwall embodies the best of all seasons. With the summer holidays having drawn to a close and kids back to school, the coast is significantly more peaceful than in former months, yet the autumn climate still allows for BBQs and sea swims galore. In fact, September is when the ocean often reaches its peak temperature, having been warmed by weeks of summer sun. Here’s our list of retreats available in September, inviting you to enjoy a post-summer stay within arm’s reach of the beach.

Watergate Lodge, Watergate Bay

20% off 7 night September stays.

Just 400 metres from Watergate Bay sits this unique eco house.

Watergate Lodge sleeps twelve and is available for a discounted stay in September.

4 Karn Havos, Bedruthan

20% off 7 night September stays.

4 Karn Havos is a coastal house situated in an area of clifftop near Bedruthan Steps known as a “Dark Sky Discovery Site", where the lack of light pollution means you can spot shooting stars, constellations and planets.

12 Cannery Row, Hayle

Available 17 - 23 September

Live to the rhythm of #Hayle estuary at 12 Cannery Row, a waterfront townhouse beside the ebb and flow of the river.

Chy Lowen, Mousehole

Tucked away in one of Mousehole’s winding lanes is Chy Lowen, a cosy cottage with beach chic décor and a garden bursting with leafy plants and colourful flowers.
