Surfing & Bodyboarding in Cornwall

Cornwall is well known for its great surfing opportunities on both the north (in Newquay, Perranporth, Watergate Bay, Gwithian) and south coasts, so it's possible to take advantage of the best waves on either coast depending on the wind direction. Choosing one of our Creekside Cottages means that you are ideally placed to visit both coasts to take advantage of all the surfing opportunities. Surfing is every bit as much fun as it looks and if you enjoy being in the water, then there's nothing better than riding the waves!

Surfing is an all year round activity and Cornwall is the place to be - so whether you're a novice and need some pointers, an experienced surfer, or just want to have fun in the water, choose one of our self catering cottages for your holiday in Cornwall.
