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.

We are at present building a large double garage for our larger groups of guests who may have 3-4 vehicles, boats, canoes and other water sport equipment. Whilst we have guests staying we do not do any of the building work. Due to the busy first year we have had and July being the peak holiday season where the house is fully booked, for safety reasons the garage area is cordoned off with fencing. I have noted on the website that there is open sea views to the front of the house with a beach and also a natural babbling burn coming down the boundary of the property. The woodlands and rear garden is terraced on a slope. Therefore young children would require to be supervised.
