Property above: Sheldrake, Cornwall (sleeps 8-10 people)
Welcome to our selection of Cornish self catering properties close to the sea. Perfect for family breaks or a holiday with friends, we list everything from beach front cottages in Sennen to old fisherman's cottages in Portmellon... and everything in between! Many of the properties here are within a stones throw from the coast so quite often you don't even need the car to visit the beach.
We've also commented on those properties that boast wide ranging views, as we don't think there's a much better way to spend the evening than with a glass of wine in the garden watching the sunset over the Atlantic!
