Luxury Holiday Homes by the Beach in Cornwall

There’s something magical about waking up in a luxury holiday home by the beach in Cornwall.

A place where you can enjoy the sound of waves breaking on the shore and seagulls soaring overhead as a gentle breeze flows through the house and welcomes you to a sensational day on the coast.

Or step outside and take a few short steps to the beach to feel the sand between your toes and the reinvigorating coolness of the water as you paddle in the sea.

Then return to your luxury beach pad for a delicious breakfast and soak up the stunning coastal views while you relax in the comfort of your holiday home by the sea.

All this is waiting for you at these spectacular beachside holiday homes on the North Cornwall coast.
