There’s nothing better than waking up in a cottage by the sea. The sights, sounds and smells of the ocean stir the senses and add to the excitement of being on a seaside holiday. The sea has a powerful attraction and it’s natural to want to immerse ourselves, both figuratively and physically, while on holiday in the far South West.
Fortunately here in Cornwall, and especially Padstow, there are a good number of self-catering holiday cottages with stunning sea views and direct access to the coast. If you’re looking for some salty inspiration for your next seaside holiday, here is our pick of the best sea view cottages in Padstow (and the surrounding area).
Stay in the former home of Rick Stein in this art deco mansion atop Trevose Head for uninterrupted views of the deep blue sea. See the full Polventon property page.
