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.

Thanks you very much for taking the time to write a review, and we very sorry you didn’t fully enjoy your stay.
To address your issues
We haven’t ever had a complaint about uncomfortable beds or pillows, we do always ask and it states in our welcome pack if you have any problems please let us know straight away to avoid these sort of problems, we could have bought you fresh pillows or mattress toppers had you let us know you were uncomfortable. The new owners are looking at upgrading the beds for 2017.
With regard to the shower cubicle, again had you contacted us we could and would have quite easily cleared that for you, it really is a shame you didn’t think to let us know.
You’re quite right there are no locks on the bathroom doors as a previous guest took the key, but we will of course now address this issue as soon as possible.
There are mirrors in every bedroom apart from the loft room and we have even left extension leads in cupboards etc so you can easily reach a mirror with your hair dryer, I’m not quite sure how you missed them.
We did get a text from you saying the TV didn’t work which unfortunately we didn’t get immediately but it was followed by another text 2 hours later saying it was working , my brother in law also came to check this, maybe just a case of user error. He also let you know we had 2 spare tv’s at the ready should you need them.
We lived in the loft room for 2 years and always found the tv positioning fine, very sorry you didn’t.
I must agree, with the Cornish sea air the BBQ is a bit rusty so we will replace that.
Unfortunately Cornwall Council, in their wisdom only collect recycling every two weeks, we do our best to help out with this and again had you let us know it was building up we would have come and cleared it for you.
We were not aware of any broken blinds but as previously stated you only had to let us know and we would have come to look at and fix them.
The cleaner did tell you where the extra bedding was and it was used, so you must have found it!
The sofa beds are singles which most people find more convenient sorry you didn't.
