If you're looking for an active break and aren’t afraid of getting wet, book one of these holiday homes near fantastic water sports destinations worldwide.
Water sports holidays by the sea allow you to spend energetic mornings on the water and lazy afternoons chilling on the beach. Inland destinations near lakes and rivers are less tied to the summer season and can offer great windsurfing, canoeing and sailing throughout the year.
If you’re planning an action-packed holiday, choose a villa or cottage with plenty of home comforts. You’ll really appreciate a bubbling Jacuzzi, steamy sauna or cosy log fire after an active day on the water.

With regards to the parking, we try to allocate most bookings with a visitors parking permit that will allow one car to park outside the property. We are limited to the amount that the council will allow us , but for additional cars we are lucky that guests can park their cars for about £2 a day in the sports ground opposite the house.
We do appreciate that one bathroom and one cloakroom is limited for a house of this size, but we do try to keep the price at a reasonable level to reflect this. However three of the bedrooms do have vanity sinks.
We understand that these clients had a lovely week and we appreciated their lovely email to thank us.
