Make your way to the Cornish coast this year for a stay at Ocean View. Here the very best of coastal living awaits, with a truly spectacular location and breathtaking views across the water. We’re sure you’ll spend most of your time relaxing on the sun-drenched deck, whether that’s unwinding in the hot tub, barbecuing, or reading a book on the sun-lounger. If you can bring yourself to leave (and that may be quite difficult!), you’ll have the harbourside village of Polperro and the bustling town of Looe within easy reach. And if you’re looking to explore more of the Cornish coastline during your holiday, take a look at our complete guide to the Cornish coast for the best beaches, boat trips, and, perhaps most importantly, where to find the best dinner with a view.

We love the sea-facing conservatory - the perfect spot to relax with a good book in hand, or perhaps enjoy an afternoon nap, and on those warm summer days, the garden is an idyllic spot for outdoor dining under the Island sunshine. The whole family is sure to love the coastal adventures on offer on the Isle of Wight, including discovering its secret places and finding your new favourite walk - you’ll be spoilt for choice! 

 

Buzzards Rise

Rural cottage in the Tamar Valley

Tamar Valley, Cornwall | Sleeps 2

Best for: Quiet weekends away

Embrace a slower pace of life in 2024 with an escape to Buzzards Rise. Sitting in the tranquil Tamar Valley countryside, this gorgeous hideaway is just the antidote to a busy city life. The cosy interiors are a delight in the winter months, and we particularly love the fabulous free-standing bath for long, leisurely soaks. And in the summertime, the outside space, with its al fresco dining area and fire pit, makes for many a magical night.

Discover the iconic Jurassic Coast with a holiday at Cobb Cottage. Start your days with coffee and croissants in the garden, before strolling along the waterfront and hunting for fossils. The waterside eateries and cliff top walks in the area make for incredible days out. And back at the cottage, the south-facing terrace is a lovely spot to watch the world sail by and soak up the wonderful views, no matter the time of year.
