Cottages with sea views in North Cornwall

Head to the north coast for rugged coastline and large beaches; watch the trawlers off to deep sea fish or lone anglers trying their hand off the sea walls and piers of coastal towns.

Imagine days of yore when smugglers tried to land their contraband in a sea cave as you gaze down over a cove. For a more sophisticated set up, try a sea view cottage in Padstow, a charming fishing harbour known for its foodie appeal and boutique shopping. Freshly caught fish is the meal of the day and the atmosphere remains throughout the year - this is not just a summer destination.

Hop over the Camel Estuary to Rock for an upmarket air and equally resplendant sea views. From here it's an easy drive further north to Port Isaac, now known as Doc Martin's Port Wenn. If you've ever watched the ITV series and dreamed of gazing out of one of those cottages, book a sea view cottage in north Cornwall.

Heading further up the coast, sea views become more reminiscent of medieval times with Tintagel featuring its castle, and legends of Camelot. Don't forget to check out Merlin's cave before continuing the magical mystery tour at the Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle. The most northern point of the Cornish coast is the heritage coastline of Hartland, worth travelling for the coastal walks or for a family day on the wide flats of Bude.

The rugged north coast has views of undulating cliffsides dropping into the ocean, a perfect juxtaposition to the calm flatness of the south coast, a family friendly place to stay in a sea view cottage.
