The lighter evenings, warmer temperatures and beautiful spring blooms are some of the reasons we love Easter on the North Cornish coast. If you are hoping to escape for a rejuvenating holiday by the sea, take a look at our top Easter picks.
No 6 Tregales, Polzeath
With the golden sands and rolling waves of Polzeath beach just a short stroll away, No 6 Tregales is perfectly placed for families and surfers. You could start your day with a refreshing morning surf and then retreat to this vibrant apartment to re-fuel with a leisurely Cornish breakfast as the ocean glistens in the distance.
Penquite House and Cottage, Port Isaac
Sleeps 16 (6 in Penquite House, 4 in Penquite Cottage and 6 in the annexe)
Whether it's a small family getaway or an extended family reunion, the Penquite collection is uniquely flexible. From here you are conveniently located to explore Port Isaac (or Port Wenn as it's known to fans of Doc Martin). Spend the day ambling around the narrow streets taking in the filming locations from the popular TV series and treat yourself to a Cornish cream tea in one of the charming cafés.
The Retreat, Polzeath
At The Retreat, you can enjoy a holiday by the sea in pure style and comfort. This coastal haven is just a leisurely stroll away from the fantastic surf conditions of Polzeath Beach. For those wanting to catch some waves, it's easy to hire surf boards or book surf lessons on the beach. George's Surf School and Wavehunters both offer excellent lessons for beginners through to more advanced surfers. As the sun sets on a day of beach frolics, stroll back to The Retreat and relax in the steaming hot tub under the moonlight. Save 10% when you stay for a week between 08 March and 03 May at The Retreat.
Slipper Rock, Rock
This contemporary property makes a spacious and stylish base for your Cornish escape. If you want to get out on the water during your holiday, Camel Ski School are based in Rock and offer a variety of watersports. Under their expert guidance you can try water skiing, wake surfing, paddleboarding and more. After a day out on the water, you can come home to Slipper Rock, put your feet up and enjoy a well-earned evening drink on the patio.
Cribba, Port Isaac
With miles of stunning walks on your doorstep, Cribba is the perfect base if you enjoy walking or want to bring four-legged friends on holiday. This spacious three bedroom cottage is surrounded by rolling fields and a network of scenic coastal footpaths. Here your pooch will enjoy a Cornish getaway as much as you.
Endymion is set on the edge of Polzeath's 'little sister', New Polzeath. Here you can enjoy easy access to Polzeath Beach, Baby Bay and the coast paths whilst being away from the hustle and bustle of central Polzeath. The lesser-known Baby Bay is a short walk from Endymion and makes the perfect sheltered spot to enjoy a beach barbecue or a few cold drinks at the end of the day as the sun melts in to the Atlantic Ocean.
The Linhaye, Port Isaac
Perfect for smaller families, The Linhaye is a two bedroom barn-conversion set in an idyllic location nestled amongst rolling fields. This picture-perfect Cornish cottage is ideally located to explore Port Isaac, Port Gaverne and the surrounding area. From Port Gaverne you can get out on the water and see the stunning coastline from a different perspective with Cornish Rock Tors who offer kayaking and coasteering from this pretty cove.
Clifden is a stylish and comfortable base perfect for a classic family beach holiday. Head to Polzeath beach to splash in the sea and treat yourself to ice creams as the spring sunshine warms your face. Back at Clifden the whole family will have plenty of space to relax, from a barbecue dinner eaten al fresco to watching a favourite movie whilst curled up on the squishy sofos, here you will make family memories to treasure.
