Holiday cottages by a beach in South Cornwall

Nothing says summer like warm sand between your toes and turquoise waters lapping onto golden beaches. Make the most of it and stay by the beach.Read more

Throw open the window and breathe in that fresh salty air - you're definitely on holiday when you can smell the sea! Have breakfast by the beach, spend all day on the beach or just gaze at the beach from the comfort of your holiday cottage. Nothing beats being by the sea.

If you're on holiday with children, staying by a beach means non-stop excitement and entertainment; sandcastle-building, wave-jumping, rockpool-searching, never-ending fun. If it's a more grown up affair, soak up the sun and refresh in the sea, find yourself a private cove and have yourself beachside holiday in a home-from-home.

We have 131 self catering cottages by a beach in South Cornwall.

New bookings can be placed for any holiday arriving on or after the 12th April for cottages in England and we are accepting Easter bookings at our properties in Wales, for those that can legally travel. COVID-19
