Shoreside stays

For those that like to spend life by the water, an escape with Creekside Cottages is sure to make holiday dreams come true.

Situated by the wooded creeks around the Falmouth estuary and the sailing waters of the Carrick Roads, Creekside Cottages offers an exquisite collection of water’s edge, rural and village cottages sleeping from two to ten people, with many of them allowing dogs.

Whatever the time of year, breathe in the sea air – there is always something happening that makes Cornwall special. Take in the spectacular scenery with a holiday to remember along the Falmouth estuary, with mile upon mile of sheltered waters and numerous secluded, unspoiled and beautifully wooded rivers and estuaries just waiting to be explored.

Perfect for family and friends, Creekside Cottages offer a truly personal service, helping visitors choose the best self-catering cottage to make their holiday in Cornwall relaxing and enjoyable. Most of them overlook the water, and some are even cut off by the tide once in a while, though only for an hour or two, with the majority situated just yards from the shore.

Many properties are located in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, which creates the perfect setting for escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life, allowing you to lie back and listen to the sound of nature all around you. Whether you are looking for a large family-friendly holiday, a romantic retreat or countryside hideaway to immerse yourself in, Creekside Cottages has something for you.

Creekside Cottages is run by Martin Watson whose family has been letting holiday homes in the Restronguet area of Cornwall since 1956. “We pride ourselves on creating beautiful memories to remember for years,” explains Martin. “Whatever the time of year, there is something magical waiting for you in Cornwall. From crashing seas to beautiful morning bird song gently waking you from a peaceful night’s sleep, catching fish, trying to stand on a paddleboard for the first time, or soaking up the culture of Cornwall’s multitude of talented artists, performers and creators. Just come and relax.”
