Explore a surfer’s paradise from holiday apartments in Watergate Bay

Watergate Bay lies two miles outside of Newquay on the main road through Cornwall. Facing into the Atlantic Ocean, it is a two mile long sandy expanse which is one of the most popular and well-loved beaches for surfing in the United Kingdom. It has played host to the English Nationals Surfing Championships and is highly sought after, with many travelling extensively for the waves on offer. In addition, the Bay is popular for a variety of water sports, kite flying and sand art.

HomeAway has a number of holiday apartments in Watergate Bay on offer. Families and groups are welcome, as are children, whilst gardens and on-site parking is widely available. Many of the holiday homes are modern in origin and tasteful in design with inviting, calm interiors, which are fully equipped to offer a luxurious and welcoming stay. Modern, fully fitted kitchens with laundry facilities, dishwashers and wi-fi are available whilst many apartments also have entertainment facilities such as DVD players and cable television. Finally, many are within easy reach of the main beach and waterfront of Watergate Bay allowing for easy and quick access.

Whilst beach holidays and surfing appeal to many families and groups, and account for much of the popularity of Watergate Bay apartments, England has a great deal more to offer visitors. Holiday cottages in Bowness and Windemere are the ideal base from which to explore the stunning landscape of the Lake District. As well as being popular with hikers, visitors can enjoy bike rides and water sports in the local area. Meanwhile, thespians and budding historians should consider a holiday cottage in Stratford-upon-Avon; the home of William Shakespeare.

Fantastic Sea Views and a Personal Touch

5 of 5
The owner of this apartment has gone out of her way to ensure their is a great personal and homely feel to the place with an ultra high standard of cleanliness. The sea view from the apartment and balcony is breathtaking and the location could not be better for all Newquay has to offer. We thoroughly enjoyed or time here and really hope to book again in the future. Highly recommended!!
