Tolcarne Beach, England

Would you like to sleep by the sea? I mean right by the sea so that the whoosh of the breaking waves fills your head and you dream your bed is floating on the water…

You won’t get much closer than the accommodation on Tolcarne Beach in Newquay. Built directly onto the sand and cocooned by cliffs in a crescent-shaped cove, you’re just metres from the white, white surf of the Cornish sea.

As well as these quirky 1930s beach huts for the daytime, there is a choice of beds for all budgets and seasons – from simple “surf shacks” to luxury apartments with huge windows.

You’ll have no need to go back up to the real world at all. Kahuna, right next door, offers the same mesmerising views and fantastic, locally-sourced food (veg from their friend’s patches!). Watch the waitress rake giant words in the sand each morning to entice customers down from the cliff top.
