Dotted with villages and beaches, the Cornish coast epitomises the kind of idyllic, photo-perfect image you have in mind when you think about seaside holidays. And of course this wealth of shoreline makes a holiday house in Cornwall an obvious choice if you’re into water sports. Whether you’re into the gentler pursuits like swimming and fishing, or you’re after something more adrenalin-fuelled, like surfing, scuba diving or coasteering, you will find an expanse of water to suit you.

A holiday house in Cornwall offers a wealth of possibilities.
