Surfing and Jamie Oliver instantly spring to mind when you think of a Watergate Bay holiday cottage - and with good reason. If you're looking for a mix of adrenalin sports and sensational food, read on.
Even though this is one of Cornwall's surfing hotspots, the beach at Watergate Bay is so big, it hardly ever gets crowded. When the tide is out, it's almost three miles long and you can walk to Newquay. There are designated swimming areas, lots of sand to create castles and also rock pools for little ones to fill their nets with mini crabs.
Surf's up at Watergate Bay!
For every kind of surfing imaginable - regular surfing, kite surfing, paddle surfing - as well as power kiting, wave-ski and more, the Extreme Sports Academy is right here in the bay. Book some lessons, grab a board and away you go! Or fine tune your skills roller-coasting on the waves.
Another great reason to book a Watergate Bay cottage is to walk the coastal path. Head west to the bustling resort of Newquay or east passing the dramatic Bedruthan Steps to Mawgan Porth.
All this sport brings on a healthy appetite and you'll be spoilt for choice at Watergate Bay. Dine alfresco on the beach, have drinks on the terrace of the Watergate Bay Hotel or splash out on an Italian-inspired brunch or dinner at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen.
Or time your Watergate Bay cottage holiday at the start of autumn and enjoy one of Cornwall's most exclusive sporting events - Polo on the Beach. Expect bubbly and BBQS, fast-paced action, an amazing atmosphere and life-long memories.
