Our cottages are second to none, but add a sea view to the mix and you've got a seaside holiday that will go beyond the highest expectations. North Cornwall has awesome towering cliffs as backdrops to swelling seas, spectacular vantage points from which to look out at the horizon.

Take a step back from the North Cornwall shore and choose a holiday home with a view of the sea instead - a beckoning glimpse of sparkling blue sea through the trees will get anyone out of bed in the morning.

From Portreath's wide sandy beach up to the upmarket town of St Agnes, on to the excitement and surf of Newquay, through a food-filled visit to Padstow, waving hello to Doc Martin in Port Isaac, dropping in on the legends of Tintagel and finishing off for watersports in Bude, this coastline is one filled with all the seaside antics you could imagine.

Even if it's just a for a coastal short break, the sea air will benefit your well-being, find yourself one of our secluded beach cottages in North Cornwall or set yourself up in a bustling harbour town, either way don't forget your four-legged friend who would love long walks along the coast path from one of our dog-friendly properties with sea views.
