Seek to Sea More.

Whether it’s surfing before breakfast, the sand between your toes, or taking in the sunset from your balcony, we know there’s nothing like spending time by the sea.

At Beach Retreats, we’ve pioneered a new kind of contemporary self-catering holiday. Discover our portfolio of exclusive coastal properties, all within walking distance of the best beaches in Cornwall and Devon. We give you everything you need to be able to just switch off and recharge.

Explore the natural beauty of Cornwall and Devon with a perfectly positioned self-catering holiday let. Park-up and leave the car to walk miles on soft sand, hike clifftop coast paths and wander cobbled streets. Pick-up local amenities from the village shop and dine out at waterfront restaurants. Make new memories with inspiring sea views and coastal walks on your door step.

“The SW peninsula formed by Devon and Cornwall is a land of coastlines and contrasts – think Cornish pasties and Devon clotted cream! The Cornish coast is rugged with romantic crags and caves to entice pirates, walkers and holiday makers alike. Devon on the other hand offers deep flooded valleys (called rias) and soft sandy beaches – sailors and sunbathers will love it! Self catering cottages form an ideal family base for exploring all parts of this lovely coastline – Beach Retreats offer some of the best.”
