Such a lovely little bay – and these two apartments, on a small hillside, one above the other, have Atlantic views to die for. Newly updated in contemporary style, inside they are light, warm and comfortable and, taken together, perfect for a big gathering. Both have wood-burners and logs on the house. Upper Tregudda is especially light, its spacious sitting room and huge windows overlooking the sea. A balcony stretches along the sea-facing side of the house, replete with sun-loungers for sunsets and views; the sitting room, dining room and master bedroom all have French windows that open onto it. Lower Tregudda – just below – has a much larger kitchen with seating for eight, opening straight onto the lovely shared garden; there are surf boards, fishing nets and croquet too. The area is owned by the National Trust, so walks are special and the coastline is dramatic. There’s safe swimming and rock pools on the pebbly beach below, famous Port Isaac is around the headland and the bustling Port Gaverne Inn is at the bottom of the (very steep, very narrow!) hill. Drift off at night to the lap of the sea.
