At Beach Retreats, we promise more than high-spec luxury coastal properties. We promise the enviable coastal lifestyle from the moment you walk through the door, to the moment you pack up and go home again. Our unique holiday lets echo beach life – from the décor and location, to the local amenities such as surf schools, sea-view restaurants and sundowner spots. Many of our luxury self-catering holidays have been interior designed to give guests the ‘wow’ factor upon arrival.
Will it be a boutique apartment overlooking the surf, a fishermen’s cottage nudging a historic harbour, or an old sea captain’s house with sub-tropical gardens? We’ve got the key to your dream home by the sea.
From quaint Cornish Inns on the waterside to award-winning Michelin Star restaurants, guests are spoilt for choice when it comes to eating out in Cornwall. Grab some Rick Stein fish and chips and watch the waves roll in at Fistral. Book into Nathan Outlaw’s in Port Isaac; recently voted the UK’s number one restaurant, receiving two Michelin stars. Head to Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Restaurant in Watergate Bay for Italian-inspired dishes served with a Cornish twist. Or, choose one of our recommended caterers and enjoy a cosy night in from the comfort of your own retreat. The choice is yours. See our blog for more foodie inspiration.
With a natural playground on your doorstep, Cornwall and Devon offer an abundance of things to see and do with your family during your stay. Fly a kite at Watergate Bay, watch a show at the famous Minack Theatre or enjoy a family surf lesson. If you’re looking for a new place to explore, we have all the inspiration you need.
Visit the newly refurbished Tate St Ives, showcasing British art through its gallery, exhibitions and events. It embraces the best of international modern and contemporary art in a beautiful location overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Whilst here walk around the harbour where the beaches are golden and the light piercingly bright as it bounces off the clear water.
Further west, you’ll find the enchanting St Michael’s Mount in Marazion. Walk the causeway at low tide and climb to the top of the magical castle. Here you can admire the panoramic ocean views, hear the islanders’ tales and unearth a history that lives on in every step.
In north Cornwall we recommend a visit to Port Isaac. Immerse yourself in the Doc Martin TV set, eat at Britain’s only two-Michelin-starred seafood restaurant, or simply sit by the harbour to take in the 700-year old village.
