The sea once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonders forever

- Jacques Cousteau


For a fabulous family holiday or a break with friends, Steephill Cove is the perfect destination. Accessed only on foot, The Cove is a beautifully tranquil spot for the ultimate traditional bucket and spade holiday or to switch off without having to jet off. In fact, it’s such a favourite magical place for our guests that they return year after year to its delights.

The Boathouse, located right on the beach, has been renovated lovingly with your comfort in mind and with charm and attention to detail. Using natural woods to echo the beachside location, the great outdoors meets comfortable chic in this character house. The master bedroom up in the eaves has stunning sea views as does the living room with its cosy and restful aspect. For the absolute relaxation, order lunch or supper from our seafood restaurant with fresh fish and seafood caught daily by our own fishing boat and have it delivered to your door.

As well as the master bedroom there are two further twin bedrooms. There are two bathrooms, one of which has a spa bath – perfect for relaxing after a long coastal walk and a dressing room. There is a large kitchen with all mod cons including a dishwasher and American fridge freezer, a dining area and a fantastic conservatory and balcony * to enjoy the views and a sunset glass of wine. And of course there is the beach right on your doorstep.

You have your own garage at the top of the Cove. With children in mind we have provided a high chair and baby gate and there is WIFI, Sky TV and a DVD player with films. Although we provide all bedding, we would be grateful if you could bring waterproof covers for small children.

So if a family holiday is what you're looking for or you want to relax with a bunch of friends, then we think that we have thought of everything to make your stay truly memorable in this most unique of places. With its spectacular position, The Boathouse will be somewhere that you’ll want to return to year after year and tell your friends about. The perfect British holiday spot.

* Please note, that the conservatory and balcony are available to use up to 11.30 am. and from 4.30 pm. onwards due to the seafood restaurant in June, July, August and the first week in September. Full use at other times of year. *  We do accept some dogs, please ask for details.   £20 per short stay, £30 per week charge, plus an additional £50 deposit per stay.
