Where we are…

22nd July 2013

We are very lucky to be based in North Cornwall and to have so many of our holiday cottages and apartments looking over some of the best beaches Cornwall has to offer.

We thought we’d show you exactly where our holiday homes are located and reveal what’s in store for your stay with Beach Retreats.

Watergate Bay


Watergate Bay Beach is west facing and sandy, stretching out for two miles making it popular with families, couples, dog and of course surfers. The beach is exposed to incoming swell from the Atlantic making it an excellent place for watersports. There are great places to eat and drink at Watergate Bay including, The Beach Hut and Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall.

Mawgan Porth


Mawgan Porth is a picturesque village with everything you could need. It has all your essential shops, plus great places to eat and drink. However, its jewel in the crown is Mawgan Porth Beach. Sitting at the bottom of steep cliffs, this large sandy beach has rock pools, the rolling surf and amazing sunsets.  No wonder The Times named it one of the best beaches in Britain



Porth beach has a long tidal drop making it popular with families as there is loads of space for children to play and build the best sandcastles North Cornwall has ever seen! Coastal walking is very popular in Porth with paths linking east to Watergate Bay and west to Lusty Glaze and Newquay town centre.



Fistral needs no introduction, it’s the world famous surfing beach drawing thousands of visitors and surfers from around the world each year.

The Camel Estuary


The River Camel’s Estuary stretches from Wadebridge downstream to the open sea at Padstow Bay.  At Wadebridge, the Camel is still a small freshwater river but it soon opens to form a broad, flat Estuary, a vista unlike any other in the county. One of the great ways to explore this part of is by bike – the Camel Trail follows the Estuary all the way and is hugely popular with families, couples and dogs.
