Cornwall LivingIssue #90
Handpicked holiday luxury
The water is warm, the beaches are quieter and the weather is mild, making September and October great months to visit the Duchy.
With ideal surf retreats and beach chalets on the north coast, and traditional cottages and farmhouses on the calmer south, Forever Cornwall has a retreat for you. If you’re a seasoned surfer then Newquay is the place to go. Fistral’s consistent waves will give you a real taste of professional surf conditions, with several international surf competitions taking place there throughout the year. It’s also great for novices with surf schools such as Cornish Wave Surf School helping learners capitalise on the waves.
“Forever Cornwall’s Newquay retreats are all within walking distance from Fistral and the rest of the beaches nearby”
Whether you’ve spent the day riding waves or watching them, Forever Cornwall’s Newquay retreats are all within walking distance from Fistral and the rest of the beaches nearby. Perfect for couples is The Gem – a luxury cottage well set for exploring the Cornish coastline and watching the sun set from its private terrace. Or, for bigger families, why not book your stay at Ultramarine in Lusty Glaze and take advantage of the nearby beach bars and restaurants?
For those seeking a more remote surf experience, Port Gaverne offers its visitors a brilliant base from which to explore the nearby, slightly more hidden beaches. Forever Cornwall has ten beautiful cottages and apartments in the small hamlet, sleeping from two to eight, each just moments from the sheltered cove. Take to the quiet coastal roads and find Trebarwith Strand and Polzeath – both brilliant for surfing with easy access – or challenge yourself to find Tregardock at low tide for a stunning, often deserted sandy beach complete with waterfall. You could, of course, simply stay put and spend days exploring the Port Isaac and Port Gaverne coastline with Cornish Rock Tors!
If gentle waves and less-extreme watersports are your thing, then head over to the south coast. The Helford river offers a sheltered playground for those looking for relaxed paddle boarding, explorative kayaking or simply a spot of rejuvenating wild swimming. Dotted with creekside beaches, take a picnic on a rowing boat, or set up camp in dappled sunlight underneath riverside trees before strolling back to your unique retreat.
Forever Cornwall offers quality holiday homes all over Cornwall in locations that include St Ives, Mount’s Bay, Gwithian and Holywell Bay. From unbridled luxury to family friendly affordability, the team’s handpicked portfolio of unique retreats has something to suit everybody, so whatever aspects of Cornwall you’re hoping to experience, be sure to contact Forever Cornwall before booking your next out-of-season stay.
