The Details

  • Location

    Where is it?

    Watergate Lodge is a brand-new eco-friendly beach house, located just 400 metres from the beach.

    The beat of your heart in the surf, the taste of fried fish and juicy burgers, the smell of sea salt on your skin, the sight of people dotted about, smiling and laughing, in and out of the topaz blue sea. It's all part and parcel of Watergate Bay, the adrenalin junkie's paradise embodying the spirit of the North Cornwall coast.

    Scarlet sunsets set the sky alight as you dine in the swanky beachfront eateries or sip hot chocolate on the sand. Watergate's two miles of beach are popular with families, couples and dogs alongside surfers and thrill seekers. Stride out along the coast path, with nearby walks to Newquay's seven bays or Mawgan Porth.

    Plunge into water sports lessons with Wavehunters, where you can try your hand at surfing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and kite surfing. The beach is exposed to incoming swell from the Atlantic, making it an excellent place for water activities of all kinds.

    The lively atmosphere at Watergate is as constant as the tide, with vibrant music festivals and surf competitions running throughout the year.

Crawford, June 2023
"Watergate Lodge is a fantastic house, comfortable, clean and plenty of space for a large group. Great for walking to the beach - especially pleasant going through Whitehouse grounds and not needing to walk on the road."

"Fantastic house a short walk from the beach. The property accepted our dog who is the most important member of our family! Just perfect for what we wanted. "
Crawford, June 2022
"Thank you so much. Everything was immaculate when we arrived, Beach Retreats had done an excellent job. We were all so impressed by the high standard of equipment, furniture and especially the awe inspiring technology. Everyone enjoyed trips to the beach, how lovely to be able to walk down through attractive grounds. Watergate Bay is very special and enjoyed by all ages, whether we were surfing, kayaking, building sand castles, walking or just watching the world go by. We fitted in a visit to Padstow enjoying old haunts and having lunch at the Cornish Arms, where we were treated with such kindness despite the 3 kids and dog that accompanied us! We all loved our time at Watergate Lodge and will recommend it as an unrivalled holiday experience."
JC, May 2022
"We had a wonderful holiday in Watergate Lodge, a super new, architect designed property with top of the range fixtures and fittings and audio and lighting systems to die for. Situated a short 400m walk from the bustling village centre through landscaped, private gardens it provides a perfect balance of convenient access to the beach and the excellent Emily Scott restaurant while being totally peaceful on the roof terrace and in the garden."
Mr Daffern, September 2021
