Set on a spectacular surfing beach on the North Cornwall coast, Watergate Bay Hotel is the perfect destination for a contemporary beach holiday. It’s a place that’s about the balance in life – being active, getting among the elements, eating and drinking well, chilling out and getting cosy. Most of all, it’s about having a good time.
The beach is on our doorstep, so from the moment you arrive the Atlantic Ocean and the rugged coastline are an ever-present reminder that here nature rules. But inside, every part of the hotel – from the bedrooms to Swim Club – has been created to bring you the best in contemporary Cornish comfort.
There are four restaurants in the Bay all with their unique take on local product – The Beach Hut right on the sand, the laid back Living Space with fantastic views, Zacry’s with its focus on International and American dishes and Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall across from the hotel.
The Extreme Academy can teach you to surf, kite surf and handplane whilst giving you all the kit you need to stay warm. Swim Club is where you go to relax with treatments and swim in the 25-metre ocean view swimming pool.
