Watergate bay - on your doorstep
Discover Watergate Bay's largest private holiday home for rental.
Waters End house is located within 5 minutes walk of one of the most beautiful surfing beaches in North West Cornwall. Watergate Bay is a stunning 3 mile-long sandy beach (at low tide) with a dramatic coastline. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty and remains un-spoilt by major development.
Watergate Bay is popular with surfers 365 days a year and in the summer months it is very safe for swimming and dogs are allowed on the beach all year round. It is a great spot for coastal walks and a photographer's dream with breath-taking views from the cliffs. Watergate Bay is an ever-changing pleasure as the sands shift with each tide, from tabletop flat to desert dunes.
Teaming up with our good friends at Era Adventures we are able to organise a range of adventure activities including; surfing, mountain biking, kite surfing, sea kayaking and more. All are provided at preferential rates and with a professional coach to guide you.
On the beach you will find The Beach Hut Bistro, open for breakfast, lunch and dinner or you can just pop in for one of the best 'Café Latte's' in the area. For reservations, call 01637 860877. There is also The Venus Café for hot and cold take away eats and drinks for you to enjoy on the beach.

“Fabulous place, fabulous stay”
Firstly - my thanks to Justin who was exceptionally helpful before and during our stay. We were there to celebrate a 40th Birthday and there were 9 of us in our party which the house coped with easily. The house is lovely and in a great location. I shall now give you some tips as per questions I asked Justin prior to our stay ! Check in - 3pm (we didn't try for an earlier time as new house was being cleaned etc) There is a Weber BBQ and Hot tub in the garden and it's all enclosed. We parked 3 cars at the top by the entrance, there was a gated space at the bottom and a layby opposite. You can walk down to the beach, be careful with little kids. We ended up bundling the kids in a car and paying parking for the day so had all the body boards / wind breaks / buckets / spades etc to hand There is only one fridge/freezer, so be mindful if you are ordering a lot of vino / beer like we did. The Aga is very hot - so make sure kids stay away from it. The oven is mega quick ! Utility room - we used the washing machine a couple of times. All good On two nights, it was very windy, so you can hear it on the windows with the two bedrooms facing the sea (info for light sleepers). There is a bedroom and ensuite downstairs which helps. One point to note - there is not a ton of hanging space, so make use of it wisely As we were celebrating - we had a chef for the day (see cornwallchef.com) - this was the best decision ever ! Also ordered a birthday cake from Tania at Beautiful Cakes in Newquay - exceptional Justin recommended Joel from West Country Surfing who gave us lessons - he was great Check out - by 10am. Sunday to Sunday We did a Tesco delivery for when we arrived - no issues with them finding the place Nearest shop - there is a costcutter / spa about 4 miles away towards Bodmin and a Tesco express about 4 miles away towards Newquay. I think that's about it ! Thank you Justin for all your help
Hi Karen, Many thanks for your kind reveiw, i'm sorry I didn't get up to meet you all but was of course more than happy to help get your holiday sorted and enjoy the 40th celebrations in style. I look forward to welcoming you all down again soon where i'll take you out for some progession session lessons in the surf. Hanging space also duly noted i'll make sure thats sorted out asap. Many thanks again for taking the time for writing a review it is truly appreciated take care and all the best for 2016 Justin @rockpoolholidays
“Great location , warm and welcoming , nothing too much trouble.”
We rented this property for a 60th birthday celebration with extended family (there were 12 of us incl 2 small children) it was perfect, plenty of room without being in each others way. It was warm , welcoming and cosy for this time of year. Nothing was too much trouble for Justin (the owner) who arrived with scones clotted cream and cider ! Lovely views and only 5 minutes walk to the beach .
“Beautiful House - perfect for large groups/families”
Fantastic house, so much space. The best place in the house is the open plan kitchen/diner opening out through french doors to the decking. This was the hub of the house when we visited. Situated a short walk from the beach (and Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Restaurant), it's a perfect place for a family holiday or stay away with friends. When we visited the weather wasn't fantastic, we took full advantage of the Aga and wood burners. This made for a very cosy stay. I'd like to revisit when the weather's a little warmer, and maybe we could break open the barbecue! I'd definitely recommend this house, booking was easy, and the owner was very helpful.
“Wow want to go back soon”
Beautiful well equipped house everything you need and more. Great location short walk to the beach. Although you may not want to leave the house so homely and comfy. Lovely garden, everything you could want and more from this house. Can't wait to go back.
“Beautiful house in perfect location”
I stayed at Watersend with my family over Christmas. The weather was pretty awful but Watergate is such a stunning spot even when it was raining to great to walk the dogs on the coastal paths and the lovely beach. The house was always warm and welcoming to come home to with the log burners roaring. It's rare to find such a large, spacious house to rent in such a prime location. The lounge was super comfy and I loved cooking in the new kitchen diner with the aga. The owner Justin was on hand to answer any queries we had and very accommodating. A great week and we hope to return in the summer to have a BBQ on the decking!
“Our Holiday house In Cornwall.”
We love this house. We have visited 4 times now with the same crew of 8 family and 2 dogs The position is fantastic just up the road from Watergate Bay, where the dogs can roam freely on the beach and the Cornish Weather can blow all your cares away. Then return home to a lovely cosy and warm house for a great brunch before braving the surf later in the day. The bedroom layouts are great for families and The Living room has loads of comfy sofas and still plenty of room for evening family fun. When ever friends ask where we are going on holiday we say " to our holiday house in Cornwall" The owner Justin is very welcoming and helps to get the best out of your holiday. Highly recommended.
“Getaway with everything”
Over 2 weeks had all familly stay with us including 2 dogs. Short walk to Beach which even in Spring holidays did not get over crowded. Active adults and grandkids all tried surfing (which I am told Watergate is perfect for. Great location for several days out, all in all great time.
“fantastic property, amazing garden, accommodating owner.. highly reccommended”
We had an amazing stay at watersend / pendowr house. The property is beautiful, clean & very spacious. There was everything we could possibly need for our very large family including large pots & pans, something which is often overlooked, but an absolute essential when trying to cater for 12 or more. The garden is wonderful & great fun for adventurous kids. Watergate bay is a fantastic beach a short walk away, the only downside for us was that with no pavement it was a slightly scary walk with young kids.. this was easily overcome by driving down & dropping off kids & beach paraphernalia then parking the car back at the house.. easy. We also found the owner Justin to be extremely helpful & easy to contact, and would like to thank him for posting back the many things we left behind!! All in all a great time was had by all.. happy days.
“A simply magical house situated in substantial, private grounds near Watergate Bay”
We stayed at Watersend during July 2010 with family and friends. The house itself is very large, well equipped, private, light and spacious with every room offering plenty of space to relax in comfort. Our bedroom overlooked the beautiful gardens with views to Watergate Bay beyond where we could check the conditions out to sea. The ample kitchen has an aga, large traditional breakfast table and all the cooking facilities that one would require to provide for the house. There is a large dining area and lounge both very capable of seating all guests in comfort. Outside of the house the gardens are extensive and magical. The views are spectacular, especially in the higher tier of the gardens where a trial takes you down around a leat with ponds and a fantastic variety of plantation. Away from the house we spent most of our time at Watergate Bay where we enjoyed the beach, food and drink provided in the surrounding cafes and bars. The surf was suitable most of the week for our girls to body board safely as well. We also enjoyed Blue Reef Aquarium, walking, mountain biking and shopping in Newquay. All in all we had an unforgettable week at Watersend House. The private grounds provide a unique environment where we were left undisturbed to relax and enjoy a very special Cornish retreat.
