Self Catering Accommodation with Amazing Views

Cornwall is home to some of the most stunning coastal scenery to be found anywhere, which is all the more reason to make sure your holiday accommodation has uninterrupted sea views. Here we have hand-picked some of our finest self-catering accommodation with the best views; from cottages overlooking the harbour in St Ives and Mevagissey to apartments set above the sweeping beaches of Newquay Bay.

Cottage holidays with sea views in Cornwall

Of course you're never far from the sea in Cornwall and that's a big reason it's our favourite holiday destination. There are around 200 miles of coastline in Cornwall and it is both spectacular and varied. For romantic breaks you can't do much better than a clifftop cottage in Poldark country with rugged cliffs and the haunting remains of the once great mining industry.

If you are looking to book a family holiday by the sea then our selection of accommodation by the beach in areas such as St Ives, Polperro, Mousehole and Looe should be just the ticket. Picture throwing open your curtains to a scene of fishing boats setting out and waves lapping the shoreline. In most cases a sea view will mean you are within a short stroll of the beach itself and not having to load up the car to get to the beach can save on a massive amount of stress.

Take a look at all of our top pick of coastal cottages and holiday apartments by the beach above.
