Holiday Cottages with a Sea or Estuary View

The Cornish peninsula is blessed with around 300 miles of coastline - wherever you go in Cornwall, you’re never far from the sea. It is a landscape that draws people back again and again to witness its beauty, power and majesty. Whether you visit in the winter to watch the powerful breakers crashing against the cliffs, or in the summer to paddle in the crystal clear waters, the lure of the sea proves irresistible to many.

Just think of being able to wake up in the morning to the sounds of seagulls crying and the waves lapping against the shore. Then having breakfast overlooking a traditional working harbour, or miles of golden sands and a calm sea stretching out towards the endless horizon. Being so close to the coast offers many options, from a traditional “bucket-and-spade” beach holiday to an active break where you can try watersports such as windsurfing, kayaking and wave-skiing. Sailing and fishing trips are also popular pursuits for visitors, and there are many different options to choose from.

Explore stunning vistas and quaysides full of life, gaze out upon the yachts as they smoothly sail by and watch as the sun beams down lighting up parts of the Fowey estuary, and then go and join in. With water-based activities and sandy beaches, you won’t need much to convince you to head out into and become part of the picturesque view. From the quayside, you can take part in crabbing, find a bite to eat and a refreshing drink at one of the many nearby food outlets, or watch the world go by as you sit back and chill out.

Whether you sail, walk along coastal paths, or relax on the beaches, the Cornish coastline is a sight to behold. Photographers and artists would savour the scenery, amateur and expert alike, and you too will no doubt be amazed at how relaxing the coastal scenery is! Check out our beaches guide to find out about some of the nearby beaches.

Then in the evening, what could be better than sampling freshly caught fish and seafood while sipping a glass of wine and watching the sunset?

Cornish Horizons has a wonderful array of cottages by the sea, where you can relax and unwind while watching this magnificent spectacle.  Whether your group is large or small, we have something to suit everyone.
