Escape to Cornwall – 6 of the best waterside holiday lets.

6th March 2019

With Easter just around the corner and a hint of spring in the air, we're thinking holidays. No visit to Cornwall would be complete without a trip to the seaside and better still if you can stay nearby. We take a look at six of the finest waterside holiday homes to rent across the county, which one would you choose?

The Cobbles – Polperro

The Cobbles is an idyllic, 18th century, white-washed fisherman’s cottages overlooking Polperro beach and harbour in South Cornwall, and is full of character and charm.

Just a short stroll from the centre of the unspoilt fishing village of Polperro, with its many excellent cafes, bars and restaurants, this 2 bedroomed cottage (sleeping 4) enjoys spectacular sea views from most rooms. Tasteful décor, underfloor heating, quality furnishings, crisp linen and luxury toiletries combine to create a relaxed atmosphere, whilst well-placed window seats provide comfortable perches to enjoy the view and watch the world go by.

Trelowen – Fowey

Surround yourself in water on the south coast of Cornwall; Trelowen sits on the clifftop across from Fowey, commanding a view of blue where the sea meets the sky. Huge windows frame the panoramic sea views, with even the ground floor bedrooms having a view to wake up to.

As is to be expected from a Classic Cottage, the attention to detail is second to none, from the carefully laid out living room making the most of the location on the first floor, to the clever decorative features of boat oars for hanging rails and the luxury of the hot tub. And oh, what a hot tub.

There’s not many that boast such a view. Lay back in the bubbles with a glass of something equally bubbly and come rain or shine, you can appreciate the comings and goings of boats to the harbour, winter waves crashing in the distance, or perhaps even dolphins frolicking in the summer sun. If you’d rather watch the water than get in it, the beautifully landscaped garden is also home to a Scandinavian barbecue hut for al fresco dining or mid-winter marshmallow toasting. All with that exceptional view.



Cornwall Holiday Property St Ives

Shun Lee – St Ives

With incredible panoramic views of the turquoise seas spanning from St Ives’ iconic harbour to Godrevy Lighthouse, Shun Lee is an exquisite coastal home and the perfect setting for a truly unforgettable holiday in Cornwall.

Complete with a high-tech cinema room for whole group film nights, and a sociable dining room overlooking the crystal-clear Cornish water, Shun Lee has undergone extensive refurbishments since it was built in 1881.

Master mariner William John Paynter named the impressive waterfront mansion after his ship, and the luxurious holiday home still retains aspects of its rich maritime heritage. From the calming blue and grey tones of the expansive lounge to the rich dark wood of the master bedroom, the property is elegantly styled with bespoke nautical furnishings across all four floors.
