The rugged coastline of North Cornwall offers everything you need for a memorable seaside holiday. Thrill seekers can surf on a different beach each day, families can enjoy rock pooling, snorkelling and paddling in the sea and the raw beauty of the rugged cliffs and secluded coves are perfect for couples wanting a romantic seaside retreat. The two mile stretch of golden sand at Watergate Bay near Newquay is a popular spot for surfers and families alike. Take the plunge and enrol in a surf class or enjoy splashing about in the rockpools and exploring the caves. Dog friendly year round, your four legged friends will love it here too. Or the equally impressive stretch of sand at two miles to Ligger Point. Or try your hand at kite surfing, snorkelling, sailing or even horse riding. This beach is so huge, it really does have something for everyone – including the Watering Hole – a pub literally on the beach!

If you are looking for some peace and solitude and you don’t mind a bit of a hike to get off the beaten track, there are plenty of unspoilt hidden coves to explore. Tregardock Beach, Lundy Bay and Pentire Steps are all stunning spots that are often overlooked by visitors. Take a picnic and spend the day exploring the small sandy coves, sea caves and rockpools.

It’s not just surf dudes and beach babes that fall in love with North Cornwall. Anyone who loves the outdoors will feel at home here. From a quiet coastal bimble to challenging cliff top hikes, North Cornwall is a walker’s paradise. If you really want to blow away the cobwebs, the wild remoteness at Morwenstow is the perfect spot to get away from it all. From here you can enjoy a short stroll to admire the spectacular cliff top views or challenge yourself to a longer hike along the South West Coastal Path.

For those who are looking for a change of scene, the wild Bodmin Moor is just a short drive inland. The prehistoric circle huts, standing stones and high granite tors are steeped in history. Or if you want to combine captivating folklores with beautiful landscapes visit Boscastle or one of North Cornwall’s many castles. Set high on the rugged north Cornish coast, the impressive ruins and atmospheric caves at Tintagel Castle is hard to beat. There is even a beach and a waterfall for those who can’t resist a quick paddle!

If you would rather get about on two wheels, the Camel Trail, linking Padstow and Bodmin, offers twelve miles of cycle path. Following a disused railway, the terrain is mostly level so it’s perfect for mini cyclists too. Spot kingfishers, otters and bats as you cycle through moorland, woods and along the stunning camel estuary.

It’s hard not to be mesmerised by the wild rugged grandeur of the North Cornish coast. Get active on the water, be wooed by the stunning coastal paths or intrigued by the local folklore. Whatever floats your boat, we guarantee that a visit to one of our holiday cottages in North Cornwall will be the first of many very happy Cornish holidays.
