Beach Retreats

Being footsteps away from the right beach changes everything. It’s something we’ve always believed in, and a principle that continues to guide our Beach Retreats brand…

In 2010 Watergate Bay Hotel’s Will and Pix Ashworth set up Beach Retreats with a simple premise in mind. Self-catering holidays always within walking distance of a good beach. Back then, Beach Retreats was a small collection of modern lets in and around Watergate Bay. Today, hundreds of lilike-mindedwners make up the portfolio of select beach retreats across the South West – each with impeccable standards, a contemporary feel and a coastal story to tell.

Self-catering holidays always within walking distance of a good beach.

The restorative power of time outdoors. The importance of the highest quality interiors. The personal, knowledgeable touch that ensures our guests feel cared for. Our close relationship with every brand in our family lies in the principles we share. For Beach Retreats, that means recognising true beach freedom comes when proximity, personality and hotel-standards of cleanliness and service meet.

As with any family, we share pride in our successes, whether it’s accolades and awards or building loyal followings for our natural bath and body brand land&water. Away from the Bay, the launch of the award-winning Another Place in 2017 further added to the insights and expertise we all learn from.

We regularly connect and share best practice, continuing to look for opportunities to help each other improve and innovate. At the heart of it all is a belief that we need to be an active and engaged part of our communities and commit to positively impacting people and the planet. It’s a principle that sees the whole family driving to B Corp accreditation and that steers our decisions and growth.

Another thing to know about our family is that we never sit still. Ambition runs deep here, with the desire to constantly seek out and offer better for our guests, its driving momentum. The Watergate Bay Hotel family is one of opportunity and optimism. And that’s really taking us places.
